    hmm, i loaded up my ipod touch yesterday at about 6pm, watched a 24 episode on it, after that a south park episode and today another south park, and today at 12pm its already almost empty, is this normal for the use ? or is my battery really weak.
    i've had it on the adapter for 24 hour the first time i charged it

    ssh is a way of wirelessly opening ure ipod from ure computer (kinda like opening explorer being able to acces the folders and everything)...i use this when i cant get an app or a theme from installer and its easy to get on the web. (to do this u need to install winscp to ure comp)

    there are many ways to get rid of it...
    1. u may not have this....many dont..u either must have checked the box when ure jailbroke or u installed it through installer.
    2. i use services which is an app easily obtained through installer. this allows u to turn off wifi,bluetooth,edge and ssh. (of course, bluetooth and edge is for iphone so no use for us).
    there are other ways but i reccommend this way

    hope that helps

    Battery killers
    (1) wifi
    (2) screen on
    (3) cpu (ie, you'd doing something with it)

    So standby is essentially no draw, as long as wifi is off. Probably weeks, if not months.
    Playing music is not much of a draw, as long as wifi is off. 22 hours.
    Playing movies is using a lot of CPU, and the screen is on. 5 Hours.

    Wifi on, surfing, is probably in the ballpark of watching movies - less CPU, but more power for the wifi radio, roughly a wash. 5 hours

    Watching movies with wifi on (youtube, streaming video, or oops I forgot to turn off wifi) could be 3-4 hours battery life.

    In a lot of ways, your ipod touch is a tiny macbook, with a tiny battery. Use it like a laptop and it will have battery life like a laptop.

    thanks, another questionb
    is it harmful for the ipod to recharge it while its not yet empty yet?
    cause i've only recharged it when it said '20% or 10% battery life left' but would it be bad for the ipod to recharge when its halfway empty?
    cause that is harmful for mobile cellphones maybe its the same with ipod.
