    hey, ive not long had my ipod touch so i hope it improves over afew more charges. but i charged my touch fully over night 2 days ago, then used it on the train to watch 15 minutes of video, about an hour of music with the screen off, and about 20 minutes of trying to get the wifi to work. after this the battery indicator was empty and it kept saying on the screen ' battery life less than 20%' but since this has happened ive carried on using it for about another 12 hours of music, 30 minutes of video and the wifi has been on for about 4 hours. and its stil going, but stil saying the battery life is less than 20%

    so i was wondering if its likely to be becuase its new and that it needs running down and charging to calibrate it like you would a notebook, or if it is faulty?

    on a side note, how long does it take your touch to turn on? mine frequently stays with the apple logo on the screen for 30 seconds to a minute....

    Fully charge it and then fully deplete it (use a full cycle). It usually fixes itself after that. Just leave it running with a video on for a few hours in the corner or something after you fully charge it.
