Reports have circulated last week that Apple Inc. has agreed to settle a pair of class-action lawsuits in Canada, which alleged the company has misled customers about the staying power of the iPods. Lead plaintiffs in the lawsuits, iPod owners Ines Lenzi and Bradley Waddell, claimed Apple misrepresented iPod's battery life by claiming they were capable of eight to 10hrs of continual music playback. After recharging, however, the iPods' battery life began declining.

According to the Associated Press, there exists a court document stating that the Cupertino-based company is offering credits for its online store of about $44.75 to those who reside in Canada and purchased certain iPods in the country on or before June 24, 2004. To be eligible, the battery life of their iPods, while continuously playing music, needs to have dropped to 5hrs or less for the first and second generation of the devices and 4hrs or less for the third generation.
