    Hi, i bought my 8gb ipod touch 4days ago and i jailbroken mine right away but i noticed that the battery runs out reallllllllly fast. I never watch videos, i dont search on web, i dont look at photos, i dont go to itunes, the ONLY things i do are listen to music and play isnake.
    I would listen to music for like 1.5hr and play game for like 30min and the battery is half gone.

    Is my ipod a defect? or is it because i jailbroke mine... and also i never turn off my ipod. i put it in sleep mode <--is that a good idea?

    plzzzzzz helppp!!!!!

    Don't take my word for, but I would say its the iPot itself... Mine is obviously jailbroken, but I've had no problems with anything relating to it... Worst case is you go into an Apple Store and they replace your battery or something... But before you do that, let some Ipod Afficianados help you out...

    If you want to return first restore.

    But the reason the battery drains could be

    1. Wifi is on
    2. SSH is on
    3. Screen Brightness is high
    4. When you close an app you don't hold the home button for 5-10 seconds because when you do that you also shut down the process
    5. I doubt iSnake requires a lot of memory but if so that could be a reason
