    I own the new Touch 4G since a few days and charged the battery just one time so far, and I know that 3D-gaming consumes a lot of battery life. But still I ask myself if it's normal that after playing the 3D-RPG "Aralon" (on auto-brightness) for just one hour or so already 25 percent of the battery charge is gone. That means that you're able with one battery charge to play just around 3 or 4 hours? Or is the battery of my new iPod a bad one?

    Games tend to drain a lot of power, I don't know what Apple has done but I'm not sure that they designed the iPod Touch specifically for gaming. I mean the PSP only gets like 6 hours of gaming on a full battery and it was specifically designed for gaming.

    4 Hours of 3D gaming seems fine for me. Just think that the iPod has a really small battery, and 3D graphics are really exigent.
