    It's normally like that when charging. It's fine. If your really worried take it to an Apple Store or something.

    Of course it's going to get hot when you're using it while charing it. You're working it really hard but it's nothing to be worried about. Mine does this all the time.

    110F? That would almost (if not) burn you... Thats not normal... Its normal for it to get warm, but 110F?

    110F is not a burn. Your skin is already at 98.6F, so 12 more degrees is like a warm shower. Sorry, lol, I can't come up with better analogies.

    Simple hot water (not boiling) can give a person first degree skin burns under the right conditions, but having said that I doubt it's getting 110F....

    Try recharging the battery without using the iPod. See if it gets just as hot. You could possibly have a defective battery if that's the case, but you should be able to smell the battery if it's bad. If in doubt play it safe and take it to an Apple store for full diagnostics.
