How can I check an iPod Touch's battery health?

Hi,

I want to sell an iPod touch (4th generation) - iOS 6.1.6.

Potential customers have been asking and I would like to be able to tell them about the battery's health.

How can I check this device's battery health?

Is there an effective yet simple way to do it?

----------

ALREADY TRIED:

I tried to download an app but it requires iOS 7.0 or later.

If I try to update the device I see the message:

iOS 6.1.6

Your software is up to date.

----------

Kind regards,

Hey Ben...have you tried to verify the battery capacity of iPods with 3uTools? AFAIK, they don't report anything to software. I have tried Coconut, iBackupBot, iMazing, SynciOS etc and none of them report anything on iPod batteries, not even iPod Touch 5/6. I recently tried an iPod Touch 6 on 3uTools and it didn't give me any info. I'm just wondering if I did something wrong...;>)

I've only ever used them on iPhones.

Use the program called coconut battery for mac. Plug the iPod in and click on the tab that says iOS device. I beleive that will give you the info you need.

Don't judge what the value is to the OP based on your perceptions. I've sold several iPod Touch 4's and I have to beat customers away with a stick. They are perfect for young kids and not everyone wants to or can afford a smartphone and it's associated data plans. Stick to answering the question.

A battery in Good health should ideally last 6- 7 hours with videoplay back time and around 40 hours in standby mode on this device
