Hi everyone! I bought my ipod touch 2nd gen about 10 months ago and i tryed experementing its battery life on several modes starting from a fully charged battery! Test 1 n a game mode with nothing on ( wifi , location services... Etc) and using a pretty heavy game ( need for speed shift) it only lasted 2hours and a few minutes!!! Which is ridicoulesly short!! Test 2 : this time only the music was on and it lasted an amazing full day when i decided to stop it! Test 3 : i created a video which consisted of the quantom of solace movie in loop. This video had a whoping 22hour length and took up 5.6gb!! Anyway my ipod lasted just 5hours!! At last test 4: using wifi and playing the 'home' movie in loop from youtube, it lasted about 3hours!! All these tests show how awful the ipod touch 2g battery is , even with these of: -location services -wifi ( in some tests) -auto light regulator -push -brightness on middle -all the rest.. So please tell me its the same on yours? By the way is the new ipods battery better? And also my ipod fell from 6 feet bearing a soft protection and had a small dent a half-millimeter displaced screen; will that affect?
