Battery Backup on new battery

Guys I own a 160gb thin iPod classic, i changed the battery recently to a new one

The thing is battery indicator is not giving me correct position after 1 hr of playing it shows 90% and then after playing for a like 12 hrs or so it goes to red indicator and continues like that till its dead. i have tried caliberating battery, restoring it none of it works.

i got around 28 hrs continuous playback ( shuffle on , 320kbps mp3), there are no pending sectors or re allocations.

My question is isnt the 7g the most power efficient and should be giving over 40 hrs of playback.

Is there anything wrong with the hard drive. I used the HDTune Pro and scanned the sectors there are no errors and no errors in HD SmartData

What should i do ? Is it like everyone getting similar battery backup?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

@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
