    Sorry if this has been covered before, but I'm wondering if there is an app available to test the health of my iPod battery. I haven't been able to find anything, but I might not be searching with the correct parameters.

    Any ideas?

    Run your iPod on random until the battery dies... I say that's the best battery test out there.

    I'm searching for the same thing, but I think reubs was looking for the current capacity compared to the original. For example my MacBook battery is 1 year old, it has a higher charge capacity out of the box by about 257 mAh. Original: 5,020 mAh to the current: 5,277 mAh Does anyone know of a program capable of the same thing for an iPod? Thanks.
