hi, just got the new ipod.. and i was wondering how long should i charge it for the first time..?
It should already be fully charged.
You usually get it at half charge if I remember correct (or you used to), plug it in and charge it until it's full. It will stop charging when it's done.
it came half charged, however it doesnt matter because on most devices long first charge is importent for some chemistry reaction thing.. the question is how long for the ipod 4?
From what i have gathered from various sources, it is recommended that you charge the battery a few hours (e.g 2hours) after it said "fully charged". You can also refer to apple website for more battery tips.
Personally, I'm using an app called Battery Pro. It is good as it uses a 3-charge approach to ensure the battery is fully charged. The battery indicator is also more accurate than the native one.
Hope that my reply does make sense to you.
i think a 4 hours first charge is enough.. what are you saying?
I'm saying that you will need to "overcharge" the battery the first time you charge it because the indicator may not be accurate, that's why you overcharge to ensure the battery will be fully charged. It's called priming the battery.
