    Hey everyone! So yesterday I was watching a video on my ipod video (5G) and noticed after 20 minutes of watching the video I was already in the low, red zone on the battery meter! I let the battery drain all the way down until it was completely out of battery and recharged it until it was all charged up. I watched another video, once again, I only got 20 minutes of battery life. I then plugged it back into my computer and resotored it. Same thing, watched 20 minutes of video, in the low. I bought this iPod about 1 1/2 ago, and haven't been using it constantly. I still have about a month of apple care left and I think I am going to bring it in to get it checked out. What will they do to it if there is something wrong with it, swap it in for a new one?
    Greatly Appreciated, Chandler

    Your battery is dying. It has been since the battery was manufactured. If you turn it in you most likely will get a refurbed unit.


    I've used it. There are others look around. It will cost you roughly $30 for a kit.

    Ok thanks. Yeah I looked at that website it looked like it might work. Will they give me an 'old' ipdo video or the new classic?

    Why don't you just get apples free battery replacement if you still have the warranty.
