New iPod touch does not fully charge

I just got a new iPod touch and am charging it thru my Apple laptop (which is plugged in). It never gets a full charge. The "battery" on the screen of the touch looks almost full but it never completes the charge.

Hi there,
To fully charge takes about 4hrs. The first 2hrs are a fast charge bringing it to about 80%. The following 2hrs are a trickle charge to bring it to as near to 100% as it can get. It is possible that the iPod hasn't yet calculated what 'Full Charge' is yet based on your devices installed battery. Give it a few days. If it still does this after a few charges and near complete discharges then do a reset. to do this, while it is on press and hold the Menu and Standby/Power buttons for about 10 seconds until the Apple symbol appears. This should get it to do a self test which will re-analyse the battery.

All the best

I have an iPod 8GB i got in May 2 years ago. Over the last few months it will not charge when I plug it in. I got a new charger for it and it will charge my husbands i phone. Sometimes I can get it plugged...


Jeanette, The charger port on the iPod is most likely no longer fully connected to the internals, and it needs maintenance by a professional or just simply needs to be replaced. I would bring it to the Apple Store and have the employees at the Genius Bar look at it.

Ipod won't power on. Computer won't recognize it.


Step 1: Check to see if your iPod can still be charged by charging it using a wall charger and wait for it to fully recharge.
Step 2: If it does charge fully, try using your iPod normally and see how long it lasts. If it lasts for only 2 hours, your iPod battery may be dying. If it doesn't charge at all your iPod may be dead.
Step 3: If either of the cases are true then you have two options:
  1. If your iPod is less than a year old, you can bring in your iPod to the Apple Store and have it replaced for free on the spot as part of its 1 year warranty.
  2. If it is older than 1 year, you can go to the Apple Store and have them replace the battery for a fee
  3. If you are looking for a new iPod anyway, go to the Apple Store with your old iPod, and tell them you are looking for a new iPod. They will give you a 10% discount when you hand your old one in.

How long to charge a new ipod touch


Just charge it until the battery indicator indicates that the battery is full. If you want to make sure you properly condition your new battery, charge it for 12-16 hours, even if full. But usually, charging until full is sufficient, and should not take more than 6 hours if new.

Windows wouldnt load ipod


No you do not, but it's a good idea to have a partial charge before you plug it in. After you plug it in, it will start charging anyway.

How do I start operating my new IPod 8GB which did not come with a manual


The first thing to do would be to download itunes from http://www.apple.com/itunes/ and install it on your computer. Once installed plug in your ipod to using the supplied usb cable. You will be able to charge your ipod and update the software on your ipod. Once it is fully charged you can use itunes to transfer music onto it. As there are so many things you can do on your ipod you should download a manual from http://support.apple.com/manuals/

Hope this helps

Ipod Touch Battery


Your battery is fu.k.d up.  This thing ships with half a charge and your supposed to fully charge it before first using it.  Even though every genius out there will say that these batteries don't retain memory charge.  They are wrong.  You have set your battery memory to say full when it is only 1/4 fully charged.  Take the thing back to the store and exchange it for a new one if your within your 30 day window.  Take the thing back to the Apple store and exchange it out for a shiny new one if your within your 1 year window.  You don't need a receipt at the Apple store, cause they can just look on the back of the ipod and type in the serial #.  That tells them if the ipod was sold within the year or not.  Apple won't exchange the thing out if you dropped it hard or exposed the thing to liquids.

Itouch charging


Hi there,

Some speaker systems which are only compatible for charging the ipod nanos and classics do not work with the iPod Touch and the iPhone, the internals are slighly different from one another which will not allow that speaker system to charge your iTouch.

To play & Charge your touch, i suggest getting a speaker system that supports the iPod touch platform.

Hope this helps ?!
