Battery life and other woes of first generation Touch from mid-to-late 2007 This thread concerns those of us who purchased a mid-to-late 2007 first generation iPod Touch. Lithium-ion batteries apparently last about two years, and my old Touch already has a significantly decreased amount of battery life than when I first started using it in 2007. Obviously, the introduction of new firmwares has also added extra strain to a device originally built for the relatively simplified 1.x.x days. To those of you who own a model from this time period, how bad has your battery life become? In addition to terrible battery life, my device is extremely slow now, and no amount of restoration will do ameliorate this issue. What have you guys experienced on your end? Edit Some additional stuff: I've experienced additional performance degradations. Launching, running, and even closing apps takes considerable longer than it used to mere months before on the same firmware release. When plugged into a computer, the iPod does not realize it is attached to a sync cable until you wake it (though that may have nothing to do with the device itself.) Safari is noticeably more unstable, with crashes occurring with increased frequency. We'll see whether that new iPhone that will be announced next week is worth getting over an spanking new third generation Touch.
