Is it possible for an Ipod to break from the cold?

I was outside a couple of days ago with my Ipod and it was about -30 degrees celcius and it stopped working. Ever since then I haven't been able to turn it on/work it etc.

Is it possible that the cold did this?

Just making an assumption, here, but... -30°C might indeed be a little too much for the battery...

I'll quote from the safety manual:

Keeping iPod within acceptable temperatures
Operate iPod in a place where the
temperature is always between 0º and 35º C (32º to 95º F). iPod play time might temporarily shorten in low-temperature conditions.

the manual will tell you what the max and min operating temperatures are.

iPods don't like extreme cold or extreme hot unfortunately!

Happened to a friend of mine, in only 20deg F. They're sensitive.

Personally, I'd like to know where you live that it gets to -30C.

Re: Is it possible for an Ipod to break from the cold?

It's like -30 every single fricking day here since like 1 week. What do they expect me to do, stop listening to my ipod? I mean it's always in my pocket anyways, but still.

I had some trouble with the earphones. They actually froze and the sounds is shaky since then.

Re: Is it possible for an Ipod to break from the cold?

Oh my battery does the same. It's out of the charger and it tells me it's empty. And then I open it again and it like at one quarter, then 2 mins later at 3 quarters. Really weird.

Re: Is it possible for an Ipod to break from the cold?

I don't understand the purpose of have 30 GB of songs and videos if you aren't able to go through atleast half of it. I only have like 200 songs and the battery power wouldn't last through those songs, so there isn't a purpose if you can listen to the media within one setting. I'm seriously thinking about returning it because of its battery life.

Re: Is it possible for an Ipod to break from the cold?

When i went to the gym today i put it in my pocket and also held onto it with my hand for extra warmth. Last week the sensors stopped working and i really had to press the buttons hard to get it to work. It's fine and it survived the 0 degree F weather from today.

Mine is a nano too so i have to be extra careful.

Re: Is it possible for an Ipod to break from the cold?

My battery is going all over the place at the moment, I think the screen lies to me... One moment it's full, then I skip 2 or 3 songs and it's down to half full and then it plays for a while longer and it's back up to 3/4's full even though it's not been charged at all Likewise it seems to work even if it says it has no battery left...

When I do plug it in, it sometimes says it's fully charged immediately after I've plugged it in and then when you unplug it, you find it's actually only got a tiny bit of battery left.

I have been told by friends that its good to get a 'cover' for the ipod to keep it warm as its not good in the cold.

I had that same problem and i went to this website and bought a battery for 10 dollars(a changing kit came with it) and it started to work like it did when i first got it. all ipod baterries have a limited charge number so when your battery life starts jumping all over the place its time for a new battery.
