    I left my battery on charging all night last night and when I woke up and looked at the batterylog (app that shows battery progress) it said it went up to 95% really fast then only went up like 2% over the next 7 hours or so.

    Does this mean i should let it die out all the way this time or do i have a defective battery?
    P.s. It seems like this battery (2g) does't give me near as much as my old 1g did.
    P.s.s by really fast i mean like 80% charge in about an hour.

    Are you sure? They say that it automatically stops charging when it's full so leaving it plugged in is harmless. That's what I've read.

    Your battery fast charges for 2 hours to reach 80% charge and then slow charges for several hours more to reach full charge. You cannot damage your battery by leaving it on charge. See the link in my sig for pointers on battery usage. I'm not sure about the batterylog app and how accurate it is as I've never used it. you might want to recalibrate your battery meter and try monitoring it again to see if you get the same results.

    It is right. You won't damage your battery by leaving it on charge!

    It automatically shut off charging when iPod is 100% charged.

    And the guy above me is also correct
