    Do you always need to take them out before the ipod can be charged?

    We all know the ipod battery dies pretty quickly, and when charging them, it gets hot...

    Would leaving the case on while the battery is charging and getting hot be a problem?

    The worse that would happen are silicone cases going soft temporarily. It's going to take a lot more than an iPod to disfigure a case through heat.

    You shouldn't need to take off the case when charging the iPod. Unless the case physically blocks the path of the 30 pin dock connector, you shouldn't need to do this (if it does block it, you have the wrong case, or a poorly made one; return it).

    As for it getting hot. If the iPod is hot to the touch (above around 110 degrees F), then return it to Apple, it's defective and a safety hazard. Otherwise, you can leave the case on, it won't burn or melt it.

    I mean how the battery will be affected since its stuffed in that case and has no ventilation.

    Like how its in hot cars, and the battery degrades because of the heat inside the car thats trapped inside.

    My battery doesn't die quickly and it doesn't get hot.

    I haven't even worried about it, tbh.

    If it does bother you, take off the case and charge it. Or put some air on it while it charges using a fan.

    I live in Canada, and it's cold most of the year. I don't have to worry about hot cars

    LOL...seriously though, I wouldn't worry about ventilation unless you're an extreme heavy user. I never knew charging heated up your iPod.
