RE: iPod Video 30GB Battery Life

I actually noticed the 89% issue yesterday as I made a point of checking the
battery life before I started playing. I had charged the iPod from the USB
port for about 3 hours beforehand. I disabled the EQ, crossfeed and
dithering and got about 90 minutes of listening before I decided to turn in
for the night. Battery level at that time was 62%.

Regarding battery life I noticed if I have 89% after a full charge if I play
the Ipod for say about ten minutes and turn it off and turn it back on the
battery life percentage drops considerably to something like 72%.
