can I charge an ipod touch 2nd generation with 4.8 volts of electricity? Answered

I just got an ipod touch, and I noticed the battery gets drained very quickly when I am using wifi, so i figured maybe if I put 4 nickel-metal hydride (rechargable 1.2 volts each) batteries in series in a container, and added a female usb plug, it would be enough to power the ipod touch. Anyone think that would be enough to work?

Yes you can, the iPod touch can work from 4.5 volts to 5.5 without problem (4 AA rechargeable batteries in series give 4.8 volts). Don't forget that you need to connect the white and the green wire to the red one to make the iPod think you use an official charger.
