    I have the mini and it's connected to an USB 2.0 Port and it seems like it just keeps charging, even past the 4 hour mark and the battery is only half-full. Then when I un-dock it and re-dock it, it will then display "charged." Any reason why?

    Thanks!

    A number of the minis suffer from various illnesses that I've not been able to decipher. You might try a hard reset, but if that does nothing send it in for service.

    Consider getting applecare for it for $59.
    Doubles your service coverage.
    It only works for the battery though if it's performance is 50% of the original specs though.
    If your battery dies and it's out of warranty, time for a new ipod.

    If you're still getting good battery life out of it, don't worry about it. Ipods are notorious for incorrectly displaying their battery's charge level.
