    Ok well i want to know how long my 2nd Gen Nano will really last on a fully charged battery...

    I started playing song #1 and then went to the stopwatch in extras.
    Its been running for 47 Min and it still has a full battery!

    I have 1.2 days of music, so we will see... lol (449 songs in all)

    Anyone else ever tried this?

    Might do it on my 1st gen sometime :D

    Edit: 1 hour and still full battery - song: #17 Always-Bon Jovi

    Interesting test. Remember that the battery usage will change if you use the backlight often, change the songs often, and play the songs at a high volume. As such, it's not always terribly easy to compare battery lives of iPods exactly, although rough comparisons can still be made. :)

    Oh, and your battery might appear to be full but by definition, it isn't really. :eek:
