Are there any known issues with the battery life of the 4th gen shuffle? My niece's shuffle has been dying out pretty quick. I'm thinking it's because she doesn't fully charge it but rather instead puts it through quick 30 minute to 1 hour charges on the laptop.

Is this something I can take into to the Genius Bar and perhaps get replaced?

Thanks in advance for any help you guys can provide. :D

Why would they replace a battery that is probably functioning normally? You even stated it probably wasn't being charged up properly.

Obviously the first thing you should try is giving it a full charge.

Yeah that's what I plan on doing when I get my hands on the shuffle. She claimed to have left it to charge overnight and this morning wasn't able to finish a full song before it shut off on her. I'm only going by her word, so I'll have to check it out myself before proceeding further.

But say I do give it a full charge and the issue persists, I've got a case yeah?
