iPod's site about battery replacement....  
Q: Is the iPod battery replaceable?

A: Yes. Apple has an official battery replacement program for $59 in the United States (see also: Europe and Canada pricing). The program requires that you send in your iPod (any model), and Apple will replace the battery and return it to you for $59 plus shipping and handling (technically, Apple actually replaces your whole iPod with an equivalent new model or factory-refurbished model in a new enclosure, with its own service warranty; if the iPod was previously engraved by Apple, it will be engraved again). AppleCare programs for iPod are also available in some markets outside the US, and are expected soon in other markets.

The replacement program is now also available via Apple Retail locations.

WTF? Have any of you Pod People had to deal with this?

Yeah some form of extended ipod warranty is crucial. I've had mine for about 3 years and the battery just kicked it so I am on the fence with whether to send it in or buy a new one (with the video capabilities- watching SG on the subway is so tempting...). There replacment system is fast and well organized... but this means you have to have all your music and files backed up yourself to reimport onto the pod. I find this annoying because I never have all my music files backed up but if you do then getting the pod replaced is pretty hastle free.

See now I see your dilemma... I say buy because they I won't feel so bad if I spend that kind of money. I looked around too. I'm buying this one because it is $2 cheaper that the 8gb withougt vid... weird.
