    If you're still within your iPod's manufacturer's warranty (1 year), I'd HIGHLY suggest getting the COMPUSA extended warranty. It lasts for 3 years and covers unlimited replacements if the device is damaged by accident or is defective. It only costs $65. You can even purchase the plan if you bought it directly from Apple. Just a friendly piece of information.

    And no, I don't work for COMPUSA OR APPLE.

    This has been discussed...

    Apple offers a $99 battery replacement program now -- even if you are out of warranty.

    There are also user installable options for $50.

    Oh, sorry. I didn't realize it's been discussed already.

    I'd still opt to go for the COMPUSA plan instead. It replaces the entire unit as opposed to just the battery. Also, it's cheaper than Apple's plan and lasts for 3 years. Can't beat that.
