    What were doing with it during those two hours? Just apps/features eat battery life up much quicker turned on or in use then when not.  How old is the iPod?  Perhaps the battery is just starting to lose its ability to hold any sort of charge.

    Could be a defective or faulty battery.  There are several things you should do though first to help try and improve the iPod's overall battery health.  The first is to turn off Wi-Fi whenever you don't need it or can't use it.  Instead enable Airplane mode from within Settings.


    Another good idea to be to close Apps that in your multitasking tray/bar when you are finished with them.  To do this, double click the Home button.  Tap one of the listed apps until a small red sign appears over the upper right hand corner of each. Tap this icon to remove the app from the list.
