I've been having a similar problem since upgrading to v2 I get a low battery warning on start up.
For example, I listened to the iPod yesterday for less than an hour. Everything looked fine so I shut it down using the red slider. When I restarted it today, after the Apple logo, I immediately got a warning that less than 10% battery charge remained.
I've had this iPod since late September '07 and play time was fine before the upgrade. Now it needs to be charged on a daily basis. It seems like something's draining power while the iPod is turned off. Is that possible.G5, Mac OS X (10.4.11), iPod Touch v2.1
Turning the Touch on and off actually drains more power.
Make sure that you turn off wireless, push, and location services.Toshiba Satelite A-10, Windows Vista, WRT350N NAS200 WD1TB Apple TV Airport Express Nano and iPod Touch
Exactly the same problem here. It seems that battery is draining very quickly especially if the iPod touch is 'not used'. I also powered it off completely last night (iPod was fully charged yesterday) and today on powering it on again it gave me the low battery warning.
This can't be normal. Power off has to power down everything (WiFi etc.). More battery drain on startup can't be the cause. This would be like fulling your car and leaving with an nearly empty tank the next time you start it (cars also need more fuel while starting).
Somethings wrong here.
Do you think resetting the iPod could cure this problem?iPod touch 8GB, Other OS, bought in November 2007, iPhone OS 2.0.1
Currently Being ModeratedAug 8, 2008 1:05 AM (in response to Berend Schmid)the same happened to me, so i dont think is a battery issue, we ar not the only one having this problem...Mac Pro 2 x 2.66GHz Dual Core Intel Xeon, 4GB RAM, ATI Radeon X1900 XT 512MB, Mac OS X (10.5.4), Leopard/ 250GB HD,eSata 2x300GB Seagate HD, 20' Cinema Display, iPod Touch 2.0
I've had my iPod touch a little less than a year and have never seen this problem. After upgrading to 2.0 (and later to 2.0.1) I see it quite a lot. I would be surprised if it was a hardware issue. Location services are off, Fetch new data is off, WiFi is on (which it was with the 1.1.4 software as well).
In addition to this, my touch gets stuck in charging mode. Even though I've disconnected it from a power source it still shows the battery icon on the login screen and the battery charging icon top right. When it is stuck like this, rebooting, resetting, or even restoring does not help. I have to wait for the battery to go completely dead and only then can I recharge it again.
I'm going to try to go back to 1.1.4 to see if it improves things. Too bad, since I was planning on getting an AirPort for music to control with the Remote app from my Touch.MacBook 2,4Ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
Clarification: I still see the problem with the battery picture at the default start screen and the now charging icon top right. It seems (although I might be speaking prematurely) that the battery drain issue might be resolved with 2.0.1.MacBook 2,4Ghz, Mac OS X (10.5.2)
i have a battery question too
i have has my ipod 32gb touch for about 5 months now and when i first bought it the battery used t last well over 5 hours of video play
but in the last week and a my battery suddenly runs out rather quickly
i timed it today and it didnt last longer than 2.45 hours
i only use that ipod 2 times a week when i use a train for work and i only use it for video entertainment
i dont ever recharge the battery unless it completely run down
is it normal to loose so much in only 5 months considering that i dont even use it that much?
should i take it back to the mac shop,cause where will the battery life be in another 5 months?Macbookpro, Mac OS X (10.5.2), Ipod mini,Ipod shuffle,32GB Ipod touch,1TG Time Capsule
