    Apple iPod Mini MP3 Player Review

    Bottom Line: If you liked Apples iPod but would like something smaller then maybe you need an iPod Mini, its the size of a credit card, sleek, has a top-notch design and one of the best user interfaces around. Memory size is limited and can be a tad expensive to upgrade. We put the iPod Mini under the microscope, find out what we found in our official review.......

    Battery Life

    After some good testing with the battery life on the iPod Mini, I can confidently say that the battery lasts about 7 and a half hours on a full charge while listening to music. This is not the best, but it is by no means bad. You have to keep in mind the small size of the battery because of the reduced unit size, and you must realize that shorter battery life is a trade-off of a smaller unit. Luckily, it recharges to 80% within an hour, and fully within three hours, which is pretty quick in my eyes.

    This brings us to the iPod battery controversy. I will admit it; the battery life will most likely start to diminish within two to three years. But, you must understand that this is true for all lithium ion batteries, not specifically the iPod or iPod Mini. No matter what device you buy, this will happen. Apple will replace your battery for $100, if necessary, if out of warranty, or you can buy an Applecare Extended Warranty for your iPod Mini for $59 at the time of purchase.
