Hi,

I got my daughter a 4th gen iPod touch for Christmas, but I'm finding the battery life quite disappointing. I've replaced the battery, but it's still bringing up the 20% warning quite soon if she's watching a film or playing games.

I was looking for a case with a built in external battery, but can't seem to find any. I've seen mention of a Mophie Juice Pack air, but can't find any for sale anywhere. Can anyone give any advice on any alternatives?

Thanks.

Closing some of the apps that connect to the web helps. You can find a Morphie charging brick that might help. The most you are suppose to get when viewing videos is 8hrs.

This is exactly what I'm looking for, but for an iPod touch. The charger port is a bit more recessed and set back from the bottom, so I don't think one meant for an iPhone 4 would work.

Thanks.

Not sure I would buy it based on this review. I remember researching this a while back, and I sort of remember someone saying that it would work with some "bumper stickers" that were provided....but it may have been another product.

Ignore my comments above about bumpers...it was this product, which is supposed to work; but looks terrible and unsafe for a child...if dropped.

Here's another with negative reviews...

The mycharge one looks great, but the reviews are awful, if I thought it would be reliable I would go for that one.

Thanks for the help, I had seen the sharper edge one earlier but it looks cheap and nasty.

The mycharge is the best I've seen, and didn't come up in any of my searches, so thanks very much for taking the time to pass that one, much appreciated!

Thanks.
