iPod (5th Gen)

The first portable media player produced by Apple. The lithium ion battery provides up to 14 hours of music playback. The iPod in our collection has 30GB of storage which equates to roughly 7500 songs, which can be downloaded using the app store on a PC or Mac and transferred to the iPod via a USB connection lead. The iPod in our collection is the 5th Generation which was the first iPod to be available in a different colour other than white.
