    Someone asked how the battery would manage using it just as the "iWatch" I unplugged it at 6:30am and just plugged it in at 9:40pm.

    What else were you doing with it? Were you playing music at all?

    Like one minute of song, and just basic playing with it. Most of the time was "sleeping."

    Yea - I was going to say - the display sleeps pretty fast - so it wasn't really doing much but being idle all day.

    My battery drains so fast as well. Every time I play music, it goes down quickly.
    No way that this ipod nano gets 24 hours play time on music. Apple needs to adjust their claims.

    It gets 24 hours when fully charged, as soon as you unplug it, that will drop. So you are best off leaving it plugged in. Then you will get 24 hours or even more. :D

    With the old HDD based iPods shuffle vs. not shuffling had a real impact on battery performance, however as there is no spinning disk to access, it shouldn't matter.

    I thought I wasn't getting good battery either. However, I unplugged it last night and though I haven't used it today, the battery still shows full 24 hours later. I can't expect it would drop that much simply in watch mode, accessing the screen occasionally to see the time. It should last days like that, maybe even a week. Add occasional music playback to that and I can see 2 days easy.

    nano 6g battery problem

    I just bought one. The weak battery is a downer. How does Apple claim a 24 hr battery life? It's more like a three hour battery life, even when you're only playing music. Apple's really misleading customers on the battery issue.
