It’s taken a good two years or so, but Apple has agreed to replace the first-generation iPod nano music players sold in Japan that were affected by overheating and concerned customers using the first-generation iPod nano can get also the batteries replaced. The issue has been blamed on a particular battery supplier, which wasn’t named. According to Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, with all of the plastic black and white iPod nano players sold between September 2005 and December 2006, there were 27 confirmed overheating incidents due to recharging, and 6 fires that left 4 people with minor burns.
