While everyone knows about the iPod and what it can do, not so many people are aware about the batteries that are found inside. Most folks may say that the batteries will simply last for all eternity, because they're permanently attached to the inside of the iPod. Now, this assumption is inaccurate on 2 levels. On one level, the lithium ion iPod battery that is within your iPod can be removed and replaced with an iPod battery replacement kit. Secondly, although the battery never truly leaves the interior of the device; that does not mean the battery will last forever.
Now, because we now are aware of the fact that the battery will not last for all eternity, we want to make ourselves conscious of some of the tips and tricks that can be applied so as to extend and improve the life of the new iPod battery.
TIP 1: Don’t overcharge the battery
WHY: Overcharging the battery can inflict damage on the lithium ion iPod battery itself.
EXPLANATION: With nowhere to store or displace the energy, the battery will become damaged as it tries to keep charging even when it’s full.
TIP 2: Keep your iPod at a comfortable temperature only
WHY: Temperature plays a crucial role in the action of the iPod battery
EXPLANATION: Chemical reactions take place within the lithium ion iPod battery, and it’s those reactions which make the battery properly function. If the temperature it too cold, then the reactions slow down. And those reactions will also speed up if the temperature is too hot.
TIP 3: Only charge the iPod battery when it needs it
WHY: Charging the battery basically weakens it at the same time
EXPLANATION: Every time you recharge the lithium ion iPod mini battery, the general charge capacity of the battery dwindles ever so slightly. By only charging the battery when needed, you are making sure the battery only loses its charge capacity when it's got to.
TIP 4: Use your iPod on a consistent basis
WHY: Keeping it inactive dulls the battery
EXPLANATION: If you never use your iPod, the device and the battery itself can simply wear out and die. Using them on a constant basis can keep them both fresh and operational.
