    I've just bought an Ipod Touch. I was wondering what the amperage of an Ipod Touch is. Because I want to connect my Ipod Touch to an external battery.

    But when I connect it to a regular battery, it doesn't seem to recharge. Because I want to watch a lot of movies, i need to use my ipod touch for a long time without recharging it. So I want to be able to connect it to a battery. But to know what battery i have to use i need to know the amperage.


    greetings,
    Thomas

    Should be at least 500mA. Most of the wall chargers for the touch are 500 or 1000

    It must be 5v, and 500mA. As per the USB 2 spec.

    do you think it will succeed with a battery with the format of an AA battery but with the power of : 5 volt / 33 mA ?? Or is this fatal?

    There's a slight difference there.
