Thread: Battery issues.

  1. #1
    Unhappy Battery issues.
    Alright, so we all know the battery life on these things sucks big hairy monkey balls.
    But what I'm not understanding is this:

    Just the other day, I noticed my iPod battery had begun draining at a rapid rate. I figured maybe I had something running in the background, so as an experiment, I fully charged it overnight, and this morning deactivated WiFi, SSH (even though I don't believe that will drain battery), and disabled the Fetch feature. Basically I deactivated anything that would use battery while it sleeps.

    And so, I listened to music for maybe 15 minutes this morning at around 7 AM, then paused and hit the snooze button. No music playing, no apps/wifi/etc. running. Nothing. Haven't used it at all for the rest of the day

    As of 3:30, ten minutes ago, the battery life is less than 10% remaining.

    Now, my mind is pretty set on the fact that I need to get the battery replaced, but does anyone think maybe there is something I am missing that could be eating it up while not in use? I don't want to be iPod-less for a while. D=

    Edit:
    Just another tidbit of information...
    Yesterday, when it had almost been drained of battery, I plugged it into my computer and left it there for a little bit.
    I checked back in a few minutes to see the battery, and unlocked it to go to the home screen. A few seconds later, while it was still plugged in AND charging, the "Less than 20% battery remaining" notice came up.

    Now, I'm no genius, but that can't be good.

    I'm also having battery issues with my IPT. Before the new 2.0 firmware, my iPod would hold a charge for the longest time. Now I can leave it a few days on "standby" and it will completely drain.

    That could just be a problem with 2.x firmware (people do say that it does such)
