Split?  Ridiculous.  Let’s bring every Li-Ion product to legislature… then they’ll laugh them away as they come!

Apple has provided several options to rectify this issue… (soon to come to the UK)... let it go!

Oh my God - I can’t believe the government are getting involved in this. No doubt Labour will be declassifying the iPod battery to category C while the Conservativesw will state that when they are back in power, they will immediately reclassify iPod batteries back to category B where they belong!
