Received iPod nano 7g this week. Extremely  Disappointed with the battery. Lasts only 2 -3hours playback time from full charge. Any solution for this?

iPod nano (7th generation)

    I've been noticing some quick battery draining on mine as well, it's not any drastic draining but it definitely isn't the thirty hours they say it is, I've gotten maybe 8-10 hours of music and about 2 hours of video, ive restarted it and everything but nothing seems to work, I might just take it to my local apple store and see what they say about it

    What's weirder is that the battery indicator will fluctuate like crazy, I'll be listening to music and the battery level goes up and down everytime I unlock or lock it, overall I really don't have any other problems with the new nano besides the battery

    I got the same problem. Apple advertise it to have at most 30 hours audio playback. But just after a few hours, it is already almost half drained.

    Hopefully it's just a software issue and not something physically wrong with the device, I hope Apple puts a patch out for it soon, I bought this one cause my old 4th gen nano's battery was worn out but this new one has worse battery life than my old iPod nano :(

    I thought i was the only one having problems with new ipod nano battery but it seems to be that everybody's having the same problem about the quick draining. We hope Apple patches this soon...

    There are a few other things that I've recently noticed about my iPod besides the poor battery life, it has some odd pixelization just around the edge of the display, it's very noticeable when I watch movies on it and not as much when it's just on the home screen but it's still there. The build quality of this device isn't what I expected, and I don't know about anyone else's nano, but the home button isn't even flush with the glass on mine, I know that just a small detail but it is annoying. It works like it should (aside from the battery issue) as in it plays music, videos, etc. but this device almost doesn't stand up to Apples dedication to quality and attention to detail like its other devices before this one.

    Well i have to say my battery life is much better now. The only thing i did was let my battery drain all the way dead and then charged it up ( also while draining i notice the battery bars are not religable my ipod had way more life to than what i thought...it drained in about 8-10hrs). i use my iphone 5 wall charger, so i dont know if that played a part as well. But it works just fine now.

    It extends the battery life for a few more hours. But I still believe that it is not 30 hours as advertised. Anyway, I still love my ipod nano.

    Yes, the pixelation is quite obvious, try inverting the colors and it will be obvious even more. The home button looks fine with me though.
