I have found my battery to be nearly dead after a few hours of playing the new 60g Video....

Question: Do you all leave the battery charging overnight/as needed or do you charge when needed...

I'm concerned about battery life being very short.

Thanks,

Dan

They said that the battery would only last a couple of hours while playing video, nothing to worry about, it just takes a lot to power the beautiful vivid blindingly bright miracle that is the Video Ipod's screen

It seems to be working well now, maybe I just didn't fully charge it, but:

Do people keep your Ipod in the charger all the time, or once charged do you disconnect it. I don't know which is the proper way to keep it charged....

Thanks

i think its actually bad to leave it charging but anyway just disconnect it once its done charging and try not to charge it until its almost empty again as you dont want to use up your battery cycles.

Yes, that is what I thought because the screen is "active" when charging/completed charging. You make a good point about the charging cycles...I wonder how many there are in an average unit, but I suppose that is another post.

Thanks for the help.
