Does anyone have some good battery saving techniques? Mine dies really really fast, and it bugs me. Haha.

Hahahah, I have a second generation iTouch and I can barely play tower defense/watch videos/go online for an hour or two before my battery dies. The battery really sucks a little.

For starters, you could turn on Airplane Mode when you don't need the wifi. I find that makes it use about half as much battery when I'm at school. You can also turn down the brightness a little bit. If you also don't feel the need to be obsessively wired online like I do, you can also turn off push notifications.

If you think the battery life is, like, unusually bad and you still have a warranty, you can bring it to an Apple store and they'd probably replace your battery for free. Without a warranty, a battery replacement is like $79, in which case you'd probably just be better off trading it in for 10% off a shiny new fourth generation iTouch. :P

Hmmm;
Well, my sister told me that having a lot on in the multi-tasking drains your battery. Because everything in the multi-tasking bar is still running.
So; I suggest after everytime you use like... a gaming app or another app that you're not going to use within the next few minutes that you delete it from the multi-tasking bar.
I'm not guaranteeing that it will work though But it's worth a try?

If you double click the circle button (I don't know what it's called ) a little bar will come up... That's the multi-tasking bar (:

The best power technique I have is.... Plug it up to charge when you're not using it, or keep it plugged in if you want to play it if you're near a computer and I always lock it when I may stop using it for just a few minutes. It's them little things that count.

I have the newest one too em keep the brightness down as low as you can. Turn off push notifications in the settings and leave bluetooth off too. Turn off all sounds other than music of course :P like ringtones and stuff you mighn't need. Make a playlist with a load of good songs in it before you leave your house and then put it on shuffle so you don't have to be constantly turning the screen on and off to change songs. That's all I can think of for now.

I download this "Battery Doctor" and I've taken a shot of the full tip guide which will cover a lot of what people have said here, plus more. Obviously though you can't follow every single tip because we use some of them a lot. Example, I have loads of 3rd party apps I want. Apologies for the size of these images, I know it's just an iPod screenshot but this is fucking insane how it's made it bigger.
