    I've heared that SSH uses battery but I've also heared that I should leave it on... is it true that it uses up the battery faster?

    SSH will run the battery down like nothing else on the iPod. This is because it repeatedly tries to connect to the network, even when you're out of range of one, which uses a lot of power. Definitely keep this shut off when you're not using it.

    yes it happen often that you battery life increase after you turn off ssh or wifi or dim the brightness. I usually turn off ssh but i activated the option to turn it on automatically when i restart my ipod. Just in case some apps messed up my ipod if I can still ssh I can sometime fix the problem manually.

    SSH is not good for battery. Generally, wifi, SSH, search for known networks, etc. should be off and brightness low when you don't need otherwise.

    yeah it drains the battery...

    someone should make a switch in the wifi settings under Wi-Fi called SSH
