    what is it supposed to be?

    for those of you who have one, what kind of battery life do you get?

    for me, it seems that i may have a nano that doesn't work properly. i run a lot (basically everyday) and it seems after about 2 runs, i have to charge it. so it seems like i'm getting at max 2 hours, probably less. now i do have the volume up quite a bit, but not all the way up.

    do you think i should take it back to the apple store?

    14 hours. If you are getting significantly less than this, take it back.

    Problem solved.

    i don't know if this is true. at what volume? when you have your headphones on, it's at a relatively low volume. seems to last a long time.

    however, patched into the car stereo, with the volume way up, it doesn't last nearly as long.

    well i took my nano back to the apple store. i left it with them. they are supposed to do a battery test on it and call me back. if it doesn't come back with 80% of 14 hours, then they will replace it (probably just the battery). they said they would format everything though. oh well, it's not that big of a deal.

    well i called earlier today about my nano, and they said it would be ready either tomorrow (monday) or the next day (tuesday). if i don't get a call tomorrow, i'll call them, just to check up on it

    my nano battery doesn't last that long. It's longer than yours, but I also run every day, and after 2 days it's significantly drained, but not fully. My rev. B mini lasted much longer.
