If the battery icon on the iPod classic screen shows the Charging screen, the battery is
charging. If it shows the Charged screen, the battery is fully charged.

If you don’t see the charging screen, iPod classic might not be connected to
a high-power USB port. Try another USB port on your computer.


If a “Charging, Please Wait” or “Connect to Power” message appears on

the iPod classic screen, the battery needs to be charged before iPod classic can
communicate with your computer. See “If iPod classic displays a “Connect to Power”
message” on page 61.

If you want to charge iPod classic when you’re away from your computer, you can
purchase the Apple USB Power Adapter.

To charge the battery using the Apple USB Power Adapter:


Connect the iPod Dock Connector to USB 2.0 Cable to the power adapter, and plug the
other end of the cable into iPod classic.
