Japan is investigating a potential, um, defect in the Apple iPod after one reportedly "shot out sparks" while being charged. This is according to a government official who commented to the AP today. An anonymous official in the Japanese department which oversees product problems, stated that the defect is suspected to be in the lithium-ion battery in the iPod Nano, model number MA099J/A. About half a million of these model of iPod nanos have been distributed in Japan, and it is unclear whether there will be recall or if this is an isolated incident.

Wasn't there a problem with Chinese made cell phone batteries exploding a few years ago? You'd think manufacturers would learn a lesson.
