How long to charge the ipod to your computer?


Fully charging the battery takes about 4 hours. You can also fast-charge the battery to 80 percent capacity in 1 hour (2 hours for iPod (Click Wheel)). Charging the battery may take longer if you're using iPod as it charges.

I charged my 2GB SENSEI mp3 player for more than 4 hrs...but still its not working even for 10 to 15 mins......so wat is d time required for full charging....


Depending on the age of the mp3 player, the battery may be shot and you may need a new one. mp3 players tend to get heavy usage and the batteries can die and get burnt out quickly especially if they are not charged properly. Try draining the battery until it can no longer turn on. Then charge your battery for 6 hours. Good luck.

Turns off automatically


Plug it in and charge it for 3 hours, if it does not say fully charged
or dies quickly after this, then the battery is no good.

You could try this, turn on till dead, wrap in newspaper, place in zip lock bag, place in freezer for 2 days, take out let sit for one day in a warm area,
charge for three hours and see if it holds the charge.

Meter Explanation


You are correct on all accounts. A high number means you dying battery is sucking more juice from the Schumacker. A low number means the battery is not as thirsty. That's how I always think of how to read the meter on mine. Slow charge is a better, deeper charge. The quick charge will get you going, but you should maybe follow it up using the normal mode - car alternator and prolonged drive time. I never use quick charge, personally.

Unit will not turn on


Your battery is recharged when connected to your computer. Turn the player off and connect it to your computer via the USB cord. The computer must be turned on. Initial charge should be for 10 hours with subsequent charges 3 to 4 hours for a full charge. A quick charge of 1-1/2 hours will give you a 70 percent charge. A fully charged battery will last up to 15 hours under normal use.

Hold down on the center button while hold down on the menu button. The apple logo will appear. Your Ipod is now rebooted.

Is the new battery fully charged? Usually it takes 6 hours on a new battery.

IPod mini battery dies when nearly fully charged, often while skipping songs.


iPod batteries are cheap on ebay...like $5...and come with installation instructions. Try installing a new battery and see what happens...?

Slow or fast charge


Yes, the amperage your charging at determines charging time. The higher the amperage, the faster it charges. Your battery is rated in mAh or milliamp hours. One Ah means the electric charge transferred by a steady current of one ampere for one hour. A mAh would be 1/1000th of an amp for one hour. If your battery is a 1500mAh battery it means 1.5 amps for one hour. This charge current should not exceed the rating of the battery. It would cause possible excessive heating and possible a fire or explosion, especially on newer more volatile batteries like lithium polymer batteries. The life of the battery charge when fully charged will be similar no matter how you charged it, but slower, lower amperage charges will maintain your battery better than quicker, higher amperage charges and help extend it's life to its potential.
