    What conserves more power, keeping your ipod touch off with wi-fi off and ssh or turning it off and then rebooting (because rebooting wastes a lot of battery) im going on a 26-hour car trip from AZ to indiana . which would i be better off doing when i am sleeping

    The iPod has like 200+ hours of standby or something. I don't think it really matters.

    Also, isn't the point of camping to escape the modern day life, and just take a relaxing day in the woods with no technology? Damn, I feel old :/

    200??Are you sure of that?Hmm I should try and see.
    But I also have a question I live in France and I go to Dallas next week with 15 hours in a plane.
    I have an external battery for my ipod touch. Should I:
    -let it charge (even if the battery is full) while i'm playing on it.
    or -playing on it and when there is no more battery charge it

    Yeah I know but even if wanted to go on internet and watch youtube videos I just couldnt do it cause there is no wifi router in planes.
    But I just would like to know if I should let it charge (even if the battery is full) during the whole trip or just charge it when there is no longer battery.

    I would suggest charging it when there's no more battery. From experience with iPods and MP3 players, the battery life time is longer when you only charge it when you need to, and not all the time. And just turn brightness all the way down if you don't need it

    It has a lot more than 20 hours of standby time. The iPhone 3G has 300. Granted, it has a better battery, but leave the iPod sleep├Čng (and not playing music) and it will last a long time.
