It works, and it doesn't crash. However, it's rather minimal, and it cannot automatically detect an iPod. You have to type its volume name. Something weird: it sucessfully performed the change on my hard drive, when I typed in its volume name.

No need for this program, you can do the same thing from the terminal. Enable voltage meter: touch /Volumes/(the name of the iPod)/iPod_Control/Device/_show_voltage Enable battery display: rm /Volumes/(the name of the iPod)/iPod_Control/Device/_show_voltage Make sure you replace "(the name of the iPod)" with the name of your iPod. Be sure to add a backslash before spaces and other special characters. For example, if the name of your iPod is "My Sweet iPod" then you'll need to type "My\ Sweet\ iPod". Similarly, "Bob's Music Thingamajig" would be "Bob\'s\ Music\ Thingamajig". If yours is named just "iPod" like mine is, then there's no special rules.

Nice tip! But let's face it, some people out there have Terminal-phobia so this is where this program comes in handy. Your tip works though so that's cool.

Judging by the documentation, the iPod, when switched to a numeric battery display, shows centivolts. So, when your iPod shows "361", it means the battery is charged to 361cV. If you don't know what a centivolt is or even what a Volt is, then perhaps you shouldn't have asked to download iVolt, don't you think? Much less complain about it when you don't understand it and can't be bothered to work it out!

HUH? Whats this thing supposed to do? One button (Voltage) does nothing, the other (Battery) shoots off an error.
