On my nano (which doesn't have a brand new battery or anything, but
battery replacement on nanos is pretty rare anyway, I think) my battery
percentage will appear to be down a percent or two just from browsing
the menus. I don't have hard data, but doing anything that keeps the
backlight on has a very quick, noticeable negative effect.

I think a user can still scroll down.
