I've often wondered what to do when my iPod Shuffle runs out of juice for good. I mean, I use the thing every day. Gotta have that music! I just love my Shuffle. It's durable, the perfect size and clips onto whatever I'm wearing. It's a lovely little gadget.
So, after some research, the discovery was it would cost nearly $60+shipping to have Apple replace the battery. This leads me to think the little guy is disposable, since it cost me 78 bucks to buy it about a year ago.
I mentioned this in the Apple forum. The response to me was~~the Shuffle is not disposable, is built to last and I should purchase an extension on some maintenance package, so battery replacement would be cheaper.
Apple dropped the price of the iPod Shuffle to just 49 bucks!!
What does this mean? And does it still cost nearly 60 smackers (plus shipping) to replace the battery??
I think my next Shuffle will be purple :o)
