I have a 2nd gen (i think) ipod shuffle, and i've only used it a few times, but the battery can't seem to hold a charge. any solutions? waaaay past warranty/apple care, is it a lost cause?
It's likely that given the age of the device and the long gaps between use that the battery has lost it's ability to retain a charge and is now shot. You'll need to have the iPod's battery serviced or you can start saving for a new one.
