The iPod touch uses a [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lithium_polymer|Lithium Polymer] battery. Now, I'm not too familiar with the internal construction of Lithium Polymer batteries but I do know that the Touch's battery is rated at 3.7 V. Typically, the lowest voltage that lithium-polymer batteries are rated at is 3.7V, leading me to believe that this is in fact a single-cell battery. The battery itself is a singular sealed "packet," but there is a very (extremely) low possibility that multiple cells are enclosed in the outer package and the small PCB attached to the top edge of the battery steps the voltage down. I would say that scenario is highly unlikely. Regardless, It seems that your [http://www.ifixit.com/iPod-Parts/iPod-Touch-Gen-1-Replacement-Battery/IF132-005|battery] is toast. At $15, I'd say its worth it to just replace the battery to rule that element out.
