    How many % does your battery drop overnight?

    Is mine average?

    92% at 10PM, woke up at 6PM checked the battery is at 83%. So I pretty much lose 9-10% everynight per 8hours.

    Firmware = 4.0.1 and baseband unlock. No background app running.

    I leave my iPod on charger all night, so idk

    Once i wasn't home and I put it down at 83 and woke up at 60 something.
    The reason is that wifi is always running if it is left on.

    Actually I used to own a ipod touch 3g 8gb, and wifi turns off when it locks, same with the iPhone. It shuts off wifi when it locks and turns back on immediately when u turn back on the device.

    iPod Touches are super different from iPhones from what I noticed. When i had my ipt 1st gen and my 3GS a few months ago. The ipt battery life was always a lot better then my iPhone. I would assume because of the 3G and EDGE radios on all the time. I never had wifi turned on on either of them, except for school. Id say that it is a normal drop in battery usage. If you want to save A LOT of battery, turn airplane mode on. One hour or two of battery life extra for me (good if you are on the road and just want to listen to music)

    Some people only lost 1-2% overnight? WOW

    I lose 1-2% in 8hours with airplane mode on.

    I lose 9-10% a night with no airplane and with only Phone RUNNING. No background apps.

    Anyone know why I lost so much compare to the 5% and 2% people have?
