Apple Lowers iPod Battery Replacement Price
If you happen to be fortunate enough to live near an Apple retail store, you can get the battery in your iPod replaced for only $59. They have also lowered the mail-in replacement price to $59.
iPod owners experiencing poor battery life with an existing iPod can bring the player to an Apple-owned retail store for testing. If tests show the battery to hold a charge of only 50 percent or less of its original strength, Apple will offer a replacement for $59.
I think at least one of the Apple-certified retailers in my area is matching the price as well.
