About the iPod Nano Battery
iPod nano has an internal, non-user-replaceable battery. For best results, the first time you use iPod nano, let it charge for about three hours or until the battery icon in the top-right corner of the iPod nano display shows that the battery is fully charged. If iPod nano isn’t used for a while, the battery might need to be charged.
The iPod nano battery is 80-percent charged in about two hours and fully charged in about three hours. If you charge iPod nano while loading files, playing music, or viewing a slideshow, it might take longer.
How to Charge the iPod Nano Battery
You can charge the iPod nano battery in two ways:
- Connect iPod nano to your computer.
- Use the iPod USB Power Adapter, available separately.
To charge the battery using your computer: Connect iPod nano to a high-power USB port on your computer. The computer must be turned on and not in sleep mode (some models of Macintosh can charge iPod nano while in sleep mode). If the battery icon on the iPod nano screen shows a lightning bolt, the battery is charging. If it shows a plug, the battery is fully charged. If you don’t see the lightning bolt or the plug, iPod nano might not be connected to a high-power USB port. Try another USB port on your computer.If you want to charge iPod nano when you’re away from your computer, you can purchase the iPod USB Power Adapter.
If you want to charge the battery using the iPod USB Power Adapter, do the following:
Warning: Make sure the power adapter is fully assembled before plugging it into an electrical outlet.
- Connect the AC plug adapter to the power adapter (they might already be connected).
- Connect the iPod Dock Connector to USB 2.0 Cable to the power adapter, and plug the other end of the cable into iPod nano.
- Plug the power adapter into a working electrical outlet.
Important note: If you have an optional iPod Dock Connector to FireWire cable, you can also connect iPod nano to a FireWire port on your computer or to an iPod Power Adapter (with a FireWire port) that’s plugged into an electrical outlet. You can use FireWire only for charging the battery and not for loading songs and other files onto iPod nano.
Understanding Battery States
When your iPod nano is not connected to a power source, a battery icon in the top-right corner of the iPod nano screen shows approximately how much charge is left. If iPod nano is connected to a power source, the battery icon changes to show that the battery is charging or fully charged. You can disconnect and use iPod nano before it is fully charged.
Important note: Rechargeable batteries have a limited number of charge cycles and might eventually need to be replaced. Battery life and number of charge cycles vary by use and settings.
Red color – Battery less than 20% charged.
Green color covering half of the space – Battery about halfway charged.
Battery is green – Battery is fully charged.
