    Is it possible to overcharge the iPod Touch like if I leave it connected for the entire night?

    No, it is not. it will stop charging when the battery hits 100%

    awesome! I was afraid it'll be like my LG Chocolate, which pretty much ran out of juice after just a year.

    That can still happen. Rechargable batteries eventually die.

    I leave my iPod touch docked all the time when I'm not using it so I don't see it being a problem.

    Rechargable batteries DO eventually die... however the weather you leave it docked at 100% wont make a difference. Its the amount of use the battery gets.

    yeh on one of my workhorse powerbooks the batt just suddenly dropped off max capacity one day to 88% and then two weeks later to 77%. So, time to get another one, it only has about 200 cycles on it but it's more than 2 years old.
