Tip & How-To about Audio Players & Recorders
When you first get the iPod make sure to fully charge it. Then only charge the iPod when it is so dead that it will not stay on long enough to play anything. Then allow the battery to charge until a screen appears saying fully charged. This may seem redundant but it ensures the batteries capacity will be maximized for as long as possible. There are only about 1800 charge cycles in an iPods battery life. This may seem like a lot of charging ability but when you wish to keep the iPod for more than a year and a half it becomes more realistic that it is not.
Above all else, never ever remove the iPod from the computer without ejecting it first.
If you are for some reason unable to properly eject the iPod, first shut down your computer before removing the iPod.
