iPodResQ today announced that it is now offering an iPod nano high-capacity battery upgrade service. The company said it will install a new battery that offers an approximate 10% increase in play time for $64. The service includes a custom “iBox? sent via overnight courier to pickup the nano for overnight delivery back to the iPodResQ service center. iPodResQ will receive the nano, install a 400 mAh high-capacity battery the same day it is received, and return the nano back to the customer overnight.

You pay $64 to gain 1.4 hours of battery life…

Not a bad deal. I’d rather send it into them than into Apple if the battery will last longer. I mean it’s $65 with Apple anyway, why not get longer battery time for the same price? Of course it would be dumb to send it in before the original battery died.

I’m just surprised that they have better battery techonology then apple already!
Apple should have researched and gotten the best battery for the small nano. I can understand them now comming out with better batteries for the older generations since battery techonolgy is growing, just not already
