Battery life on iPod touch 4G

How much battery life are you getting out of your ipod touch 4g at full charge. Like gaming, surfing the internet, watching videos or listening to music.

Around 4-6 hours. Really depends what you're doing.

iPad is around 8 hours.

1-3 hours gaming, 3-6 hours light web surfing, 20+ hours music with screen off.
Mine is about two years old and heavily used, so I'm surprised it still lasts this long.

I'll give you some real time results from my usage. Hopefully this will help.
I get about 2.5 hours full time usage on my 4G iTouch, when playing poker on Big Fish Games (iTunes casino app). This is constant usage with Wi-Fi connection on. I get about 8 hours of podcasts playing continuously. My iTouch is about 1.5 years old and I use it daily.

I usually get 8-4 hours, or 4 hours of heavy use.

When was my iTouch built?

Is there any way to determine when my two iTouchs were built?

I'm getting less than an hour of charge-holding in a day with 85% sleeping. I want to see how old my batteries are.

Many thanks for any suggestions.

JP

ps:
What is the plural for iTouch? (iTeach, iTeechies, iTush, iTooch, iTie, iTouche?)

Considering all the stuff, it's a range of 5 hours with screen on. My touch has 2 years.

One recent exception is with tiny tower vegas. Its battery hungry App

Mine's horrible - I can get an hour out of it if I'm lucky (I got it at release so it's 4 years old). I don't really use it other than in a dock since I have an iPhone as well so it's not much of a problem for me.

I get around 37 hours of uninterrupted audio playback under battery testing conditions. But realistically it's probably about 4 hours of usage like others have said. I got mine in December 2010, so it's pretty original. I also recently sold it, but it served it's purpose almost as long as anything I've owned. Still have a 2nd gen and a 2006 iPod video though.

Here was my test notes at the time. Impressive for a 4 year old battery. But it had it's share of issues calculating it's percentage properly. It was all over the map.


I thought about replacing the battery, but since it was used mostly for music and not apps or internet. I kept the WiFi and BT off for better battery life. Along with using iOS 4.2.1 instead of iOS 6. Huge improvement in speed and battery life with less things to process and keep in memory. Instead I replaced my horribly scratched up screen with a red one It was a nice mod to hold me over till I got my Classic.
