Hey,

I got a new iPod touch for use in my car. I'm always particular about the battery of new devices and I know it's bad to always leave a device plugged in. Because the iPod is only being used in my car, whenever my car is on, it's charging, even if the battery is already at 100%.

Basically, I'm looking for a way to set constraints on the charging, so that it only charges if it's under 80 or 90%. On Android (my phone is Android) I could easily do this with Tasker. Are there any iOS alternatives to do this?

Thanks for the help!

All of batteries in Apple products contain circuitry to prevent over-charging. You can leave it plugged in without special software.

Leaving it plugged in will not cause damage.

However, the summer heat will! Don't leave the iPod Touch in a hot car. Come fall the battery will have half the capacity. (experience speaking here, this happened with a friend's touch)
