There are two ways you can charge your iPod battery:
- Plug your iPod into your computer's USB port. Make sure your computer is turned on and not in sleep or standby mode.
- If you have an Apple USB Power Adapter, you can connect your iPod to the power adapter with the USB cable or dock and then plug it into a power outlet.

If your iPod has a display, you'll see a battery icon in the upper-right corner of the screen that shows its charging status. On your iPod shuffle, you can check the status light.
