After being frustrated with my 15gb iPod's battery life (only lasting an hour). I said lets purchase the battery replacement kit, which will give you longer use time. I'd like to note that in the process of replacing the battery I fixed a screen issue that I was having just by replacing the battery. My screen would periodically look like it had old film lines in it, and the contrast was bad.
Here are the photos. Taken without a flash. I didn't have enough good light, and the flash was creating too much of a reflection bleaching out the pictures.
