    I have this problem too!

    I have had many iPods. None of which have had a problem like this. Every time I plug in my iPod it gets rediculously hot. Not sure why. And from full charge it takes only two hours for the battery to run completely flat (this is on the lowest screen brightness setting!)  I have only had my iPod for just over three months and don't want to have it melt itself to a sloppy death. How do I prevent this!!?!?

    Get it looked at at an Apple Store or coaal them up; 2 hours is most certainly not acceptable.

    Use Apple's new Applecare chat system assuming available where you live.

    Let us know how it works out.

    On iOS 7 I have fetch mail and background app refresh on etc. I just checked, I've been using my iPod for 6 hours now, that includes movies, YouTube, games, music, social networking etc. plus it's had 7 hours of standby time and it still has %45 left, so maybe you have a bad battery?

    Take it back to where you bought it, they'll either send it away to be looked at and fixed or they'll give you a new one as all apple products have a 1 year warranty and since the iPod is not achieving any where near the specs mentioned for battery life, it'd be classed as a defective product and sent of to get fixed or you'll be handed a brand new one

    I have an IPOD 5 32 GB i bought it on my trip to USA in june 2013 from walmart. It was working fine until a few weeks ago when it started getting discharged very soon(4 hours). I live in India and i dont think that the apple store here would replace it and shipping it to USA would be really expensive. Is there some solution and some one told me (actually everyone tells me) that plugging it for too long also affects the battery life of the device

    Since the battery started draining fast just recently, maybe a newly installed app is the culprit? I think it is worth trying to uninstall all apps you have installed within the last few months and see if this helps - I noticed that sometimes apps keep the ipod from standby.
