    I use my iPod for mostly internet, and when I use it, its battery sucks. I have it on like, the LOWEST screen setting, with auto-brightness off. Its weird. My battery lasts like, 5hrs just on internet, no music or anything. What the heck is up with that?:confused::eek:

    Show me a wifi internet-oriented device that does better (excluding iPhone).

    He's trying to say that in comparison to other mobile devices that support wifi networking, the battery life is very good. If you leave wifi on, yes, it will drain your battery like crazy. Turning it off when you're not using it will improve life substantially.

    I'm saying that 5 hours is pretty good for a mobile device on wifi. That antenna uses a lot of power.

    now that was a funny answer.

    your touch is always searching, searching, searching for a good wifi connection.

    that uses a lot of power.

    so if not needed, turn wifi off.

    Ok, thanks. I keep it off when I'm not using it though. Thanks though!:rolleyes:
