Prolong iPod battery life

Battery an important aspect of your iPod, but what if your iPod keeps dying every hour and you have to recharge your ipod, no problem!! Here is why you need to take a look at this. Here are some ways that can extend your iPods battery life.

  • Put It on Hold - Accidentally activating your iPod is easy if the play button rubs against something while it’s inside your pocket or bag. Unless you plan to use your iPod right away, engage the Hold switch so it doesn’t play when you’re not listening.
  • Avoid Large Audio Files - All iPods except the shuffle and the nano store files on a hard drive. To preserve battery life, the iPod spins up that drive, loads data into a 32MB SDRAM chip (the 60GB fifth-generation iPod is the only one with a 64MB chip), and then spins down the drive. With larger files—for instance, those encoded in the AIFF, WAV, or Apple Lossless format—the hard drive has to spin up more frequently, thus draining the battery more quickly.
