    If you're under warranty or under Apple Care's warranty, it's free for a replacement.

    But if you're out of warrant, you'll have to pay. And remember, you're getting a new iPod at a lower price, not the same one. Pricing is as followed. [ First Number - Repair Price ; Second Number - Battery Replacement Fee [ Online ]

    I think it has a smaller battery to free up space for the flash memory.

    I think your battery life sounds typical. I haven't met anyone that has battery life, that Apple says you'll get. You can try other things to help. such as ...

    turn down brightness
    if you aren't using bluetooth, turn it off

    There's others ... but stuff like that really makes a difference.
