    Hey :]

    So, lately I've been wondering..
    My Battery life hasn't always lasted forever.

    I'd charge it for around 10 Hours or so when I go to sleep, and afterwards the Battery would die out in around 1-3 Hours.


    The only reasonable explanation I could think of was:


    1 - I use my iPod Touch, ALOT.
    Or Because
    2 - My Brightness is at 100%




    Just curious to know what everybody's Brightness is at, and if you have any Knowledge as to how it impacts Battery Life?


    I myself like the look and feel of 100% Brightness.
    Sort of gives off a nice glow

    Although in the day time, it's sort of hard to notice, really.
    Just curious if theres any point changing it to 50% Or so.

    Yessir, keeping it at 100 will drain your battery faster than a dog would eat its own....well, you get the idea.

    Lower that sucker to 30 or 40.

    No freaking wonder ><;
    What's with the whole "Auto Brightness" Feature, too?
    Is it better to have it on or off?

    It'll make your screen brighter or dimmer depending on the light level in your surroundings. I leave it off.

    Brightness drains the battery really fast. Almost as fast a monopoly does
