How To Get The Most Of Your iPod Battery

In order to preserve and enhance the life span of your iPod battery there a few things you should be aware of, before starting to take up some technical advices.
Advices
First, you should know that iPods have built-in, rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that provide more playback time than nickel-based ones, since lithium has a higher power density and comes in lighter packages.
You can also recharge a lithium-ion battery whenever convenient, without the full charge or discharge cycle necessary to keep nickel-based batteries at peak performance. However, there is a finite number of charging times, which are defined by charge cycle.
A charging cycle is the complete usage of the battery power without necessarily charging it just once. For example, you can use the iPod for a few hours, for half it's power, afterwards recharging it fully. If this is repeated, it would count as a single charge cycle, not several, so it takes several days to complete a cycle. The point is that each time a charge cycle is completed, the battery capacity is slightly diminished, but it would take plenty of charge cycles until the battery capacity has come down to 80 percent of the original power. This is why it's important to fully charge your battery, and to charge it whenever you see it has been completely discharged.
Fully charging the battery takes about 4 hours. You can also fast-charge the battery to 80 percent capacity in 1 hour (2 hours for iPod (Click Wheel)).
Another aspect regarding iPod sensitivity is temperature. You should always be careful not to keep your iPod in direct sunlight or at temperatures above 35º C. Don't leave it in cars, during the summer in direct sunlight, because temperature can rise up to 65º C. Also, during winter, if the iPod is cold, you should let it warm by itself until it reaches room temperature before you switch it on.
Tips
Even if it's not being used, an iPod will consume bit by bit its own battery power. Usually, an iPod battery kept at optimal storage temperature will dry up in 14 to 28 days. As already said, a full charge of the battery takes 4 hours, but you can also fast-charge your iPod for 80 percent of its capacity. Always remove the covers or carrying cases from the iPod before charging it.
Lithium-ion batteries need to be used for maximum performance. If you don't use your device often, be sure to complete a charge cycle at least once per month.
Be sure to use the Hold switch every time you don't use the iPod but you're carrying with you in pockets or bags. This prevents the iPod from accidentally starting.
Changing tracks a lot forces the iPod to use its hard disk for opening up those songs and this consumes a lot of energy. So you should avoid changing tracks most of the time, instead you could just use the Shuffle option if you don't like the songs to be played in order.
You should generally use compressed audio files for iPods, since they work best with average file sizes, like less than 9 MB. The most common used audio formats are MP3 and AAC. When working with iTunes, it is best to use audio files with smaller sizes because their conversion to the iPod works faster.
How to save some energy
Turning off the backlighting on the iPod is a good way to save some power since this function takes up a lot of battery power. Simply choose Settings > Backlight Timer > Off.
Turning off the Equalizer is also a good way to extend the battery playback time. To turn off the Equalizer, select Settings > EQ > Off.
If you stop using the iPod, you should press Play/Pause in order to pause the song, otherwise, the iPod will continue to play songs until the battery is all dried up. You can put the iPod to sleep to save battery life by pressing the Play button until it goes to sleep.
