What's the real battery life like on the new small shuffle? I know what they say it's supposed to be by looking at the Apple ipod web site but as we know that is always over stated (just like estimated fuel consumption on cars)! Is it decent or not?

Cheers!

I had discussion with few of my online friends and found that battery life on the new iPod shuffle is far better than the stated 12 hours. It lasted for around 14.5 hours from a single charge(Charging is achieved via an iPod shuffle dock).
But checking the battery has become a bit of a pain, the small indicator lights (one each side) flash when the unit is powered up, green for good, amber for ok, red for low and white for empty.
Also the only way to check battery life is to power down and then up again which is a bit annoying factor.
