UK iPod battery issue

iPod recently became the focus of "Watchdog," the BBC's consumer advocacy TV show, according to Macworld UK. "If you bought your iPod before May last year, the in-built battery was supposed to last for up to 12 hours without the need for recharging. But for the owners of many of these older models, the music has been fading a lot more quickly," Watchdog writes. The report puts forward multiple cases where iPod batteries have failed, leaving UK music lovers disappointed and frustrated. Watchdog also observed that Apple UK has failed to acknowledge that a problem exists with its iPod batteries. "Apple say they've sold over 21 million iPods and the battery issues have affected very few", the report states.
