@johnwick90 there are to many variables to accurately say what the capacity is going to be. Remember that things like backlight usage, sample rate, volume etc. all impact this. Also, just because the battery is new to you does not mean it is new. It could easily be old stock that is already depelteing. 28 hours of continuous play is actually pretty good and I do not think that there is anything really “wrong” with your iPod. Leave it alone and enjoy those hours of music.

“… the iPod classic (Late 2008/7th Generation) models do offer modestly improved battery life compared to the "original" 80 GB model that was replaced -- 36 hours of music and 6 hours of video (the previous "original" 160 GB model provided greater battery life, 40 hours of music and 7 hours of video)” From [|here]
