    I bought a used ipod touch from ebay, the seller said he only had it for a week

    the battery seems to die quite fast, so i'm thinking it might be older than he stated

    how can i check how old my ipot is, or if my battery has a normal capacity for a new ipot

    Check the serial number, it should be something like 9C736XXXXXX where the 36 means production week 36.

    The iPod hasn't been out long enough that the battery should have damage though...

    I believe we're in week 44 or something like that. It isn't very old.

    And depending on how fast stores sell the iPods, some stores might still have week 40s left.

    It's gotta be way past week 44 by now. I got mine early-November and it's a week 41.

    But even that doesn't necessarily prove anything because it might mean whatever store that guy bought the touch from, just had older stock
