After prodding from the government, Apple Inc. will post prominent notices on its Web site warning that some iPod Nano music players in Japan may overheat.
Sixty-one cases of batteries overheating have been reported in first-generation iPod Nano machines sold in 2005 and 2006, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry said.
Some units were warped by the heat that caused minor burns when people touched them, but no serious injuries or damage have been reported, it said.
A battery replacement notice was posted late last year on Apple Japan's Web site but it requires several clicks before it can be read.
