    Has anybody tried Coconut Battery 3.2.1 (latest edition) with the new iPod Touch 6th generation?

    I've had a touch for a week and cycled it down to Auto shutoff and charged it a couple of times. It should have several cycles by now. But when I run Coconut Battery, it shows ZERO loadcycles on the battery and shows the state as "Discharging (-0.0 Watt)" even while charging from the USB port.

    Best guess is the battery controller is defective or the software is reading things wrong. My bet is on the battery. Just want to check if anyone has had any experience with the software before returning it.

    Have attached a screenshot of coconutBattery while charging from USB.

    Pretty sure most battery apps are designed for the 3-connector batteries in the iPhone and iPad, not the 2 connector battery in the iPod Touch.

    It's why you can't display a % through the native OS, and why most battery apps don't really work.
