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 
status area of the 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 1.5 hours and fully charged in 
about three hours. If you charge iPod nano while adding files, playing music, viewing 
videos, or viewing a slideshow, it might take longer. 

Charging the iPod nano Battery
You can charge the iPod nano battery in two ways:

 Connect iPod nano to your computer.
 Use the Apple USB Power Adapter, available separately. 

To charge the battery using your computer:

m Connect iPod nano to a USB 2.0 port on your computer. The computer must be turned 

on and not in sleep mode (some Mac models can charge iPod nano while in sleep 

If the battery icon on the iPod nano screen shows the Charging screen, the battery is 
charging. If it shows the Charged screen, the battery is fully charged.

If you don’t see the charging screen, iPod nano might not be connected to a 
high-power USB port. Try another USB port on your computer.
