    Yes.  You can choose to go one of 3 routes in this situation.


    1.  Send it to Apple for a battery replacement.  See here for pricing:


    2.  Send it to a third party service center.  This will be a bit cheaper than the Apple route, but you'll have to do some research on which place to send it to. A Google search for "iPod battery replacement" should give you a number of results to work with.


    3.  Purchase a replacement battery online and use the appropriate guide over at to walk you through the procedure of swapping out the battery. I would not recommend this route unless you consider yourself handy with repairing small electronics.
