    Just bought my ipod touch and when playing games I noticed I drained battery pretty quick. I played till battery was completly dead then charged it overnight, I played reign of swords and after 4 1/2 hours the battery was completly drained again
    should I be concerned
    wifi was off and brightness is at about 30-40 %
    thnx in advance for any replies

    That's normal. It also depends if you're jailbroken and what kind of game your playing. Also if you have categories or stack. Those drain your battery too

    Categories lets you arrange you icons into folders on springboard

    If u have used mac os x leopard than u should now that stacks is like the thing that makes the icons pop out in a tower, or if there are many icons, a black box

    definitly normal. always turn wi-fi off, turn brightness down to lowest setting, etc. when your home play by your computer so your ipod can be charging, or buy a wall charger so you can move to different places and don't have to be confined to computer
