    When I get new ipod touch do I have to drain battery totally and then charge it for a long time so it would last longer,or it doesn't matter?
    Thanks

    Most people say that if you let the battery drain completely, and then recharge it, it increases the overall life.

    I haven't seen a difference in my experiences, though.

    this is BS.... you had to do that with the older NiCd batteries... the new litium batteries dont need to be drained completely to be recharged.... just be sure to use it enough to keep the electrons moving... if not the battery may get damaged...
