Windows 7: Replace iPod Touch 4g Battery

I think the issue is software based rather thank hardware. I found the same thing on a long coach journey yesterday. If you can still get about 6/7hrs of video watching from a full charge, the battery is fine. My reasoning this this. You play a game, probably the most battery intensive thing to do. When you play, the iPod knows it is doing something battery intensive and drops the meter. However, as soon as you stop and put it to sleep with the screen off, the device is in a very low power state. There is a big jump and the meter goes back up again. However, it doesn't stay up for as long as it normally does, it drops quickly.

I did a test. My battery dropped to 22% according to Battery Pro and the low battery alert appeared. I locked the device for two minutes. When I unlocked it and opened Battery Pro, it said 42%, the same as the built in meter. But, within about 20 seconds, the meter had dropped to 27%. I consider this to be the actual amount at the time.

Hope this helps

How long should I be able to play a 2d HD game like Amazing Breaker? I can only play that game for about 1 hour until the device shuts off.

Amazing breaker is a basic 2D game so should last a least 5hrs. The battery needs replacing. Apple will charge $79 for a battery replacement in the US - Apple - Support - Service Answer Center. It's under repair pricing. If you have an Apple store near by, try that first. Sometimes the Genius' there are really nice and will do a free of charge replacement although if it's out of warranty that's less likely. Remeber, if it's jailbroken, restore to stock iOS before taking it in. They are more likely to not help you or not give you an offer/deal is it's jailbroken.

Ok. Thanks for the information. I don't know if I should spend that much money on a new battery if there is a possibility that a new iPod Touch could be released later this year.

If Apple's release schedule is anything to go by, a new one will be out in late Aug, early Sep.

Thank you everyone for your help! Hopefully a new iPod Touch will come out this year that I can replace my worn out iPod Touch with.
