    Hey everyone,
    I have a 16 GB Jailbroken Touch and am loving it! Just a quick question though...I'm playing all these games like NES and other stuff like a bit of Internet and music...So my question is...Is the battery life of my Touch going to be affected by being jailbroken? because I know when Apple put it out it wasn't designed for games and such, but i just feel like my battery is dying way too quickly (MAX 4-6 hours, no video)

    Also what is the average length in time that these batteries to last for? 2-3 years?
    Can you buy a replacement battery for the iPod Touch?

    Sorry for all the questions...

    Thanks in advance though!

    The basic rules are:
    The more memory you use the faster the battery goes down
    The more recharges you do the faster the battery degrades
    2 years max battery life
    Not easy to replace.

    You can send it in for a replacement from the warranty after a year if the battery is down 70% I think, it's on the Apple site. If not, it's like a $70 or so replacement.
