Hey guys, I recently purchased a first generation ipod shuffle to add to my collection, and I have to say I think it is great (might start actually using it out and about).

What I want to know is that I bought it used not brand new, and what im wondering is should I expect a massive drop from the 12 hour battery life that it comes with new?

The reason im wondering is I purchased a 3rd generation ipod 40gig (my favorite ipod design) and now it is not used and made into a "collectors item" and the battery life in it now is around 3-4 hours and im sure that was about 12 hours from new, although I did use it ALOT like everyday for the 3-4 years it was in use.

Thanks guys, RTJ.
