Charge your iPod shuffle

You can charge your iPod shuffle with your computer or a power outlet. 

Use your computer

To charge your device, use the Apple iPod shuffle USB cable or Apple iPod shuffle Dock that came with your device or a different Apple-certified USB cable. Follow these steps:

  1. Connect your USB cable or dock to the headphone jack on your iPod.
  2. Plug the other end of the cable into a USB 2.0 or 3.0 port on your computer. Don’t use the USB ports on your keyboard.
  3. While your iPod charges, keep your computer turned on and awake. 

     

Use a power outlet

If you have an Apple USB Power Adapter that works with your iPod shuffle, you can charge from a power outlet. Follow these steps: 

  1. Connect your USB cable or dock to the headphone jack on your iPod.
  2. Plug the other end of the cable into your USB power adapter. 
  3. Plug the adapter into a power outlet. 

Check the battery charge

While your device charges, the status light turns orange. If your battery has no charge, you can charge to 80% in about 2 hours and 100% in about 3-4 hours. Learn how to check the battery charge
