Ok, unlike those crappy battery percentage apps that are innacurate, FreeMemory is very accurate and is worth it's whole 99 cents. When I charged my 3G until the battey indicator displayed the plug sign. FreeMemory told me that my battery was at 86%. And the lockscreen battery was not full. I have only seen similar thing happen with my 1.8 yr old 1g and I assumed that this happened cuz battery was basically dying. I don't think this Could happen with a brand new iPod. Or is it because when I ran my battery down to zero and I got the flashing battery screen I only charged it to like 30% before unplugging it so the indicator is not calibrated properly. ------------------double post merged------------------please tell me whats wrong if u know.... i'm going to NY tomorrow, so i want to know whether i should go to the apple store.
