My iPod's battery lasts for three days and is that normal? My iPod's only 3 months old do I have to send it back to where I bought it and let them check if there's something wrong with it?

Three days doing what? Music/video/web browsing/standby?

Specs state:
Music playback time: Up to 40 hours when fully charged
Video playback time: Up to 7 hours when fully charged

Throwing wifi, instagram uploads, photo taking, twitter updates into the mix three days sounds about what I'd expect tbh

There are so many factors in mobile battery life. Not just the tasks you use it for. Temperature, screen brightness, how hard it needs to work to hang on to a weak wifi signal etc.

But yes three days moderate use sounds perfectly normal to me.
