    Just had a few questions about how to get the most life out of my 30g ipod battery. 80% of my listening time is spent while at work on the computer with it plugged into the machine so it's not running on battery. Is this bad for the battery? Should I be 'cycling' the it more often and running it till it's dead then fully recharging? I don't know if a constant full charge is detrimental to its life when running unplugged? Any input is appreciated.

    Apple says that if you let it die completely then recharge it the battery life will last longer. But, I don't think it's something you should be really worried about, because I have a 5 Gen 30GB iPod and I do whatever is most convienient when charging and it has the same battery life as when I bought it a year and a half ago.
