New AppleCare Battery Document

AppleCare has a new article on 3G iPod batteries:

“The iPod battery indicator shows, approximately, how much charge is left in the battery. You may find that the battery indicator shows a charge left, but iPod stops playing because the battery is, in fact, depleted. In some cases, the iPod battery indicator may show less than a full charge after fully charging the iPod for four hours. This does not necessarily mean anything is wrong with your iPod’s battery. Follow the steps in this document to determine if your iPod’s battery is working correctly.”

The iPod EQ sounds horrible.  Also, you can’t tweak frequency bands, only their presets.  I wish Apple would come out with at least better presets.

I was given an ipod 40 gb How many charges should it last? Can I have the battery replaced over time? can i expect it to last a least 2 years with reasonable use. I charge it every night using it at least 1 hour everyday.

I think you can expect 3 years with reasonable use, but I’ve only had mine for two years, so what do I know?
