Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
Lithium-Polymer and Lithium-ion batteries don;t have them memory problems the the prior post is mentioning.
your ipod battery either takes a charge or it doesn't.
I have run accross numerous ipod that when the mainboard has a problem they will show Low-Battery signal.
If you have an a/c charger, plug it in to your ipod and see if it comes alive. If so it's the battery, replace it. If you get a low battery screen when you ipod is plugged into the a/c charger you may have a problem with you ipod mainboard.
But the battery in an ipod has no charge cycle like the old batteries did.

Top Case Removal Begin by using a flat tool to separate the white plastic front case from the silver backcase. You will need to stick your flat tool into the crevice, work it down into the crevice,and then pry up so that the casing separates. Apply enough pressure so that your flat tooldoes not slip and scratch your iPod!Continue separating the casing by gently prying up all the way around the unit. It shouldbe much easier to pry the casing apart after you get the initial corner started.
With the casing separated, grasp the top half (the part with the front bezel) and flip it over. Note that there is an orange cable in the top left corner that connects the iPodlogic board to the headphone ports. If you gently grasp the cable and pull, it will slide out of its connector on the headphone port module board.

Battery is bad. If you use a dock most of the time, it is overcharging or never gets the chance to relearn its capacity. If it just shows low battery but will still work, just run it with a low battery until it shuts off. Then recharge it completely. Do this three times. If no improvement, you need to replace the battery.
