Apple is Replacing iPod Nano (1st) Gen due to Health and Safety Risk

Apple is replacing iPod Nano due to overheating issues. All the units sold between September 2005 and December 2006 will be replaced free of charge with the new iPods. The replacement program is started due to the manufacturing defect sourced at a single Apple battery supplier for the first edition of the ultra small iPods from Apple. Apples says the possibility of overheating is very small, but since the iPod Nano is over 5 years old , the likelihood of heating than if the battery was younger.

Apple has determined that, in very rare cases, the battery in the iPod nano (1st generation) may overheat and pose a safety risk. Affected iPod nanos were sold between September 2005 and December 2006.
This issue has been traced to a single battery supplier that produced batteries with a manufacturing defect. While the possibility of an incident is rare, the likelihood increases as the battery ages.
Apple recommends that you stop using your iPod nano (1st gen) and follow the process noted below to order a replacement unit, free of charge.
Note: This battery issue is specific to the iPod nano (1st gen) and does not affect any other iPod.
