I just recently (does 6 hours ago count?) bought a 4th generation 20GB iPod. I must say I am very satisfied with it and like it a lot. This is one of those purchases that I think was worth every cent. And the packaging had an exceptional quality that I have never seen in my life before! And yes, this is the first Apple hardware I have bought, thus I have a copy of Mac OS X Panther (I run it using PearPC). Ok, enough with my life's biography already. So my question is about battery life. Lithium batteries need to have activity. So is it ok if I leave my iPod connected to a powersource (ie, my PC or via its adaptor) 24/7? Of course I will take it out but was wondering is it ok if it's connected to a power source whenever I'm at home? Will that effect the battery's performance at all? Thanks.
