PC World also has a handful of iPod battery tips, although I believe the suggestions trancend Apple’s platform. Here are my takeaways from both pieces:

  • Don’t leave your battery-driven devices plugged in all the time.
  • Let your batteries drain completely before recharging them.
  • On the iPod, “Standby” doesn’t save as much juice as “Pause” does.
  • Turning off sound equalizers may also increase battery life.
  • Batteries drain quicker in warmer environments.
