Transport properties of the charge ordering compound β-Na0.33V2O5 are studied in the temperature range from 30 K to 300 K using current driven DC conductivity experiments. It is found that below the metal-insulator transition temperature () this material shows a nonlinear charge density modulation behavior. The observed conductivity is discussed in terms of a classical domain model for charge density modulation transport.
