    I was listening to music...and then the music stopped.
    I glance down at my iPod Touch and realize that there is smoke rolling out of the dock/charger/connector and the headphone jack!

    I immediately unplugged the charger and it was kind of burnt. I then tried a different charger on my computer and the ipod won't turn on or charge.

    Anyone ever heard of something like this???

    Help?

    your "story", physics wise, is very unlikely, though i wouldn't denounce it as trolling.

    got to your nearest apple store and have it checked out.

    DO NOT PLUG IT IN AT ALL UNTIL YOU FIND AN APPLE STORE.

    If it's within warranty, they should replace it with no problem. Sometimes (extremely rarely) these made-in-china lithium ion batteries like to explode since the battery is highly unstable by design.

    I'll probably have to send it in because the closest store is about 2hours away.

    Sounds like a faulty battery. Very rare but possible. RMA it for a new unit. Take some photos and post them up here first though with a full story.

    It burnt out the two bottom jacks (headphone and charger).
    I just called in about it and they said they'll send me a new one immediately...
    Yeah I was thinking something about the battery.
    Other than that I'm clueless because it hasn't acted up and has been fine until now.
    I didn't even do anything to it, it just started rolling out smoke. Ha.
