apple.....slapped with class action lawsuit over powerbeats pro charging issues

Apple is facing another lawsuit over Powerbeats battery trouble. New York resident Alejandro Vivar has filed a potential class action lawsuit over allegations Powerbeats Pro design defects prevents the wireless earbuds from charging properly

As it's reportedly too easy to lose contact between the buds and their charging case, one of the earpieces either won't charge "consistently" or quickly drain its charg

Apple committed fraud by misrepresenting battery life and failing to address issues it supposedly knew about, the plaintiff said.

Vivar's attorneys suggest a combination of the case design and an insufficiently sturdy ear "gasket" (the piece that goes into your ear) may be responsible.

Customers have had to resort to inserting a "wedge" to keep the charging pins in contact, according to the lawsuit. The lawyers also reject Apple's claims the Powerbeats Pro are sweat- and water-resistant, arguing that sweat corrodes the charging contacts.

The lawsuit calls for Apple to "correct" the situation, compensate affected users and pay unspecified damages


image If the lawsuit is fully certified as a class action, it would cover both New York customers as well as those in Georgia, Michigan, Montana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, South Dakota and Virginia.

We've asked Apple for comment. As with many such lawsuits, there's no certainty it will reach class action status or lead to compensation. And don't expect a windfall even if the case succeeds ó with some exceptions, class actions tend to result in small payouts. If anything, the lawsuit may do more to affect design choices than Powerbeats Pro buyers' bank accounts

They need to have a class action lawsuit for the practice of creating a laptop that only THEY can change the battery on.

My MacBook needs a new battery and I have to pay someone to put it in becuase taking it apart risks damaging everything

That bullsh*t and just another way for them to make money

Had the same issue. Found out it was the charging area, had to be cleaned in both clam shell case and headphones. Been working great for months since. Basically, wipe your sh*t down then put back in the clam, sit for like 30. My studio beats 3 however for traveling, are failing smh….

Dude this is some real sh*t!!!

I was about to buy the new beats just because of this.

Sometimes I'll throw them in the case. And they won't charge. Or they don't connect cause the contacts on them suck. And I have to factory reset them to get them to work.

Most annoying sh*t ever. I hope apple gets in trouble for this but I doubt it. Just gotta hit 'em with the alcohol pads once in a while

Love the headphones you can be hella active with these and they will not fall out or have to keep pushing back in ear.

I was about to cop some red ones too.

I had the same issue but I Just started pushing them in the charging case hard and made sure contact points were cleaned..

My ear canals weird or Iím just used to the studios. Anytime I got run a few miles, that hoe never sits right. Itís like the problems I had with the old white ones, from the iPod days. Never sat right.
