    iPod settlement claim help plz?

    Does anyone else out there have a third generation iPod with battery failure?

    Mine isnt outright dead, but the charge time is severely diminished. So apparently I am a candidate to recieve a new iPod or a 50 dollar gift certificate (obviously holding out for the iPod).

    Apparently I can submit a claim via email with a .pdf file, but Im really not sure what that entitles. Perhaps I should just send via US Mail?

    I know there are some ipod owners here.

    What do you mean third generation Ipod?

    I've got a mini Ipod, which seems to have a similar problem.

    I plug the thing in ALL night, a good 8 hours. When I turn it on in the morning, it almost immediately (ranges from ZERO to about half an hour of battery life) tells me its out of battery.

    Also, it will be going along, when it DOES work, and pushing the "play" button to select a song, rather than pushing the button in the middle, seems to cause it to think its out of battery.

    I've also had, in the past, where it will tell me its out of battery, and shut off, and I reset it a couple times, with it insisting each time its out of battery and shutting off, where if I do it enough, it will suddenly spring back to life, and decide to work for a while.

    I have no idea what generation Ipod it is, I got it in early february though...

    Is this problem basically what yours is? finnicky battery?

    You need to get your battery replaced in an iPod every year or so, It costs $99.99.

    This is the theory, but is not always the case. My first-gen iPod still holds a decent charge (not the full 8 hrs, anymore, but a respectable 6), and my fiancee's mini (now a year old) gets her through the work day and the commute. My third gen, turning one year this month, still holds enough of a charge to get me through airport security, an hour wait, and a 6 hour flight to Denver without losing it's charge.

    So yes, in theory the batteries can deteriorate after a year, but this is the exception, not the rule.

    I have had my iPod(3rd gen) for over a year(Year was up in December) and I still get the full 8 hours. Then again I don't abuse my batteries.
