    i have a second generation ipod touch and its battery always over heats when i plug it in. I have tried different chargers but it still over heats. oh and when it over heats it doesn't just get warm it gets so hot that you can barley hold it, will this hurt my ipod? and why is it over heating?

    It doesn't overheat. Overheating is when the iPod says it can't be used because its too hot. The battery does get warm when charging, all lithium batteries do.

    The 3rd gens have slightly updated battery parts. Also, remember that batteries are like people, no two are alike.

    Wrong. Identical twins have EXACTLY the same genes. Try taking a science class next time.

    Not quite, they have different fingerprints and their DNA can get different mutations as they age (radiation or cell degeneration). Even then, no two twins think or act a like, no matter how close they seem to be to one another. Having twin sisters teaches you fun things. Try getting a A++ in mid level cellular-bio at a highly accredited school next time.

    I also have a 2nd generation ipod touch, 16GB. Every time my battery is below 20% and i begin to charge it, it also get extremely warm and sometimes it is almost unbearable to touch.

    That is because the iPod is in "quick charge mode" in which it'll charge to 80% in about two hours. Then it goes into "trickle charge mode" for the last 20% at another hour.

    Batteries also age differently. When they have a few cycles on them, 100 or less, they don't get as hot. Then as they get older, they get hotter. Its because the lithium gets more resistive to charging. Have you and your sister used them about the same amount? Or have you really used your's and she hardly used her's?
