    Can anybody explain how the battery in my iPod is not dying or draining. It seems to charge itself. I know I sounds wierd but I haven't charged it for a week an I use it all the time. My battery will stay at 100 for an hour and start to drop. It gets to about 47 or so and when I turn it off for awhile it seems to charge itself without me plugging it in. I use it for movies games and the Internet. I am typing this in my. iPod right now. Below is a log of my battery;

    From 04-30-09 to 05-05-09. It has not been charged.

    As you can see it gets power from nowhere. Do I just have a good battery or is it something I did?

    maybe try to let it run all the way out, until it force-shutoffs. It will go faster if you leave wifi and ssh on if you do that.

    I had It drain once in the past month. After I charge it it does the same thing. Battery goes down and recharges itself. I leave ssh, wifi, mail set to fece every 30 minutes. I play games on it for like and hour and the battery goes down but it goes back up. I can wath it in the status bar. After I exit the game it's low and then it slowly goes back up. Same thing when I turn it off.

    sometimes when you turn an ipod off when the battery is red, then turn it on later the battery will be green. don't know why though.

    That's weird my iPod only charges by itself when it's on red and I turn it off for a couple of mins.

    It doesn't charge it self LMAO, you have to understand that the percentage it gives you is dependent on what you are doing at the moment. If you are browsing safari, it will take more battery than just listening to music, so the iPod's battery will estimate the amount of remaining battery you have, but when you close safari and start listening to music your battery will rise to a higher amount, because you are using it's resources less and allows the battery to live longer.

    Idk if I explained it correctly, but I know what I'm TRYING to say, let's just put it this way, it happens with all electronics lol.
