Apple is offering replacements for its first-generation iPod nano after it warned that a defective battery can cause the unit to overheat and pose a safety risk.

The company said although the possibility of an incident was 'rare', the likelihood increases as the battery gets older, and urged customers to stop using their first-generation iPod nano and order a replacement online.

According to Sky.com, other versions of the iPod are not affected.

The technology firm said that customers would need their iPod nano serial number to verify eligibility.

"If you have a personalised iPod nano, you will receive a non-personalised replacement," the firm said.

"Make sure to use iTunes to back up any data on your current iPod nano before sending it in for a replacement unit," it added.

According to the report, Apple will send a replacement about six weeks after it receives the first generation model.
