Maintaining Your iPod’s Power

Like any other portable electronic device, your iPod literally lives or dies by its battery. When not connected to a power source, your iPod’s battery is the only thing standing between you and a musicless life. Fortunately, working with your iPod’s battery isn’t very difficult, but it is something you need to keep in mind.

Note

The iPod’s battery is rated for 12 hours while the iPod mini’s battery is rated for eight hours. Of course, these ratings are based on ideal conditions, which means that the iPod plays straight through for these periods with no controls being used, no backlighting, and so on. Should you expect to get that much time under actual conditions? Probably not. Later in this section, you’ll learn how to test your iPod’s battery to make sure it is in good condition.
