    I recently bought a 64GB iPod Touch 4G. I seem to have short battery life and last night the battery icon on my iPod Touch went red as it drained to 10% within just 4 hours of use. Anyway I connected my iPod Touch 4G to my Mac to charge the battery and when I did that the large battery icon that appears when connected to iTunes and charging told me that there was 75% full battery charge still in the battery:confused:

    I am confused that I am getting two readings.:confused:

    I've never heard of this one. All I can say is to take it to the genesis bar.

    Is it Jailbroken?

    What apps do you have running in the background? Skype is a CPU hog.

    I would recommend restoring your iPod before going to the genius bar

    What apps were you using? Some are more of a drain than others. Do you have any unknowingly open apps in double-tasking?

    Yeah it's jailbroken iOS4.1 with Greenpo1son:eek:. I don't have skype installed. I notice using the camera drains the battery alot.

    Unfortunately, the nearest Genuis bar is over 100 miles away from me:(
