    Hey,

    I just got a Ipod Touch 2nd gen (MC Model) a month or so ago. I just realized today that it wasn't holding any charge. It went from 90% to 30% in the space of 20 minutes. I wasn't playing apps or listening to music. Also Wifi, bluetooth and SSH were all off.

    Can someone plz help?
    Thanks,

    hmmmm

    i tried charging it again, coz i really didn't want to restore it. Charged it for a few mins and got it up to 30%. Restarted ipod and i think it started to hold charge again... Dunno what happened before when it went from 90% to 30% but i believe restarting it did the job.

    also your battery meter may need to be recalibrated...

    Let the battery run down completely (untill the iPod switches off), the do a FULL recharge.

    Maybe... use your computer... go outside... I'm just brainstorming here.
