How to tell if my IPOD battery is still good?

Is there something wrong with my battery life?

Sometimes, I get customers asking why the battery drain out so quickly? Well, here at Ray’s Customs, all batteries are checked to last a minimum of 7 hours continuous play before it gets sold.

So before you panic and ask why does it run out quickly? Here’s a few things in the checklist.

  • Did you always put your IPOD on hold while not in use, to prevent accidental playing?
  • Did you manage to charge the IPOD fully?

What happens to the IPOD when the battery is about to drain completely?

  • The set will either turn off automatically or starts to reboot.
  • It reboots when you are low on battery and pressing the forward/backward button switching songs. (Menu button too)

Here’s the various charging and charged symbols for the different IPODs.

All of the IPODs when fully charged will say charged.

Simple test:

  1. Charge it till you see the above symbol
  2. Play it continuously (See how long it last and if you are comfortable with the time?) We use a benchmark of 7 hours.

Top Tip:

I do advise to get your battery changed if it last lesser then 7 hours continuous play.
