How can the battery life for the Touch 3G and 4G be extended?  Both of our IPODs have short battery lives. Maybe 2 -3 hours at best.

iPod touch, iOS 4.2

    You can try the following standard fixes:


    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost

    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at

    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

    - Reset all settings

    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.

    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.

    - Restore from backup. See:

    iOS: How to back up

    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.

    iOS: How to back up your data and set up as a new device

    - Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.

    However, the battery capacity decreases with time and use and your capacity may be normal for your iPod.
