An overview of laptop battery technology
Authored by: WelshDog on Mar 23, '03 05:54:34PM
Yes, true. This is why I don't have one. I refuse to pay 300+ bucks for something I will throw away to 2-3 years. It's not just the battery either. The hard drive has a pretty short life expectancy as well. Apple might have some serious PR troubles in a year or so.
So basically our ipods will be useless in about 3 years? I don't think one can purchase batteries for them; so I guess it will be left to the tinkerers to do these mods.

An overview of laptop battery technology
Authored by: paploo on Mar 24, '03 02:28:47AM

After having my first rev iPod for just under a year, the battery life shortened to 4 hours. (Although I wonder how much of that is related to the bad battery routines that were just fixed in the latest patches?). Fortunately, I got the 1-year warranty at CompUSA, so I got to upgrade to a brand new iPod (which had come out a few weeks before) for free. :) (I should note that when I got the second one, the warranty covers it for *two* years. Something better break just before that, so that I get a new one again. :) And people say CompUSA isn't good for anything. :) )
