    I'll start with my touch is new and so far has had no major problems. I jail broke it about 2 weeks ago and its been running fine, except that my battery keeps jumping from 60% all the way to 30%. But then from 30% it slowly rises to 40% then stops at 45%.

    First thing that came to my mind was my battery checker was messing things up, so I enabled numeric battery percent on Sbsettings. So I'm wondering is this a problem with my battery? Or is this just because the touch does not have accurate battery checkers? Thanks

    P.S. I'm curious is it really bad to keep your touch plugged in all the time and charging?

    It is because what you do changes the percentage. Ex: Using Safari/Cydia eats up more battery than Music.app thus, the battery changes the percentile to keep up with the app running. Also, do not discus cracked apps on this forum because it is illegal and against site rules. This thread will probably be closed and/or you will get banned/notified. If you are not banned, please stop talking about cracked apps as it is against the rules.

    The battery checkers aren't that accurate, but they shouldn't be jumping like that either. It all depends on what you were doing on your iPod Touch at the time. Like, if you were playing a game, then it would estimate how much battery there would be if you were to play the game until your iPod dies. But if you stop playing the game, then it'll gradually re-calibrate to whatever activity you're doing next. Like, if you listen to music afterwards, then it'll go up. BUT if you're just listening to music and the battery is jumping around, then there may be something wrong with your battery. And it's not bad to keep your iPod charging all the time. It stops charging when it's full so you can't overcharge it.

    not very sure of forum rules except from threads from 2007.

    Edit: Well thanks for your help, it must be because I went from using cydia then went right back into standby.

    OKAY BACK ON TOPIC

    Apple themselves recommends that you let your battery run all the way down to 0% (just leave it on a 3d game or bright picture; the flashlight app from cydia runs it down pretty quick) and then charge it fully for best performance and to make it last longer.
