    iPod classic battery life
    The iPod Classic supposedly has (up to) 36 hours of music playback, right? I have the EQ on so I assumed this would be shortened a bit, but after listening to music for only a few hours from the battery being full, the charge shows that it is about 1/4 gone. This does not seem right.. The player is about a month old, by the way.

    i wouldnt worry about it my ipod touch says half the battery is gone after only about 5hrs or so of music listening when its on sleep but then the rest of battery last about 20 more hrs so it may just be a false reading

    Eh... that's kind of lame. I've been listening to the iPod for about another hour (after the initial post) and it's down about another half quarter. I'm going off to college soon and am going to need the iPod when I'm walking or riding the bus and this much battery life is worrying me... I'll see how long it lasts until the battery is gone.

    Okay, now the battery meter seems to have gone up....without me plugging it in or turning it off. I'm starting to doubt the accuracy of this thing.

    You probably want to drain it until it dies a few times. This actually conditions the batter and will give you better battery life.

    Good idea. I was planning to but never got around to it. I'll try it tonight.
