iPod battery life

A few weeks ago I got a notice in the mail about a class action lawsuit against Apple where the plaintiffs were claiming that iPods “did not have the battery life represented and/or that the battery’s capacity to take and hold a charge substantially diminished over time.” This notice advised me to test my iPod’s battery life and if the unit had a “Battery Failure” (less than four hours of continuous audio playback, with earbuds attached, with respect to the Third Generation iPod), then I could request either a replacement of the iPod’s battery or a $50 Apple Store credit.

I finally got a chance to test it today and the thing carried on for seven and a half hours. No claim form for me.

For those of you who are having problems with your iPod’s battery life and who haven’t received a class action notice in the mail, head on over to the Girard Gibbs iPod Battery Class Action web page.
