Got my 2G Touch - 6 days ago. Downloaded a dozen apps and outside of 1 issue luv the gadget. (Had 1st gen since day 1- son now has it) My issue is the battery life. For instance on a FULLY charged touch wireless off - I boarded the plane and played "wurdy" for about 2 hours. The touch then said I had 20% and then 10% battery life. I did not listen to songs or anything else. I proceeded to stop playing and listened to music for the next 30 minutes until it died. SO did not quite make my 3 1/2 hour flight. Next day - recharged and ready to go - played "spore" for about 30 minutes - at which point I got the 20% battery life warning. switched to music and played that for the next two hours. Then died. Recharged and bought a battery back up for the flight home - played wordy WHILE listening to music at the same time. Lasted 2 hours 10 minutes then died. EDIT: Have started a Poll on battery life. Please vote. Thanks http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=567516 My 1st gen touch was pretty good for 4-6 hours between video and music and some wi fi surfing. Never downloaded games etc for it. Anyone else having battery issues - do I have a bum touch?
