I just ordered this service (Nov. 8, 2005 10:30 AM EST).  I’ll let you guys know how the service goes and if they really take overnight seriously.

They sent the collection box overnight.  I just sent back my iPod.  So far so good.

I’m interested in finding out how the battery replacement works for you. Actually, I’m holding off buying a new 60G 5G iPod simply because I do not want it to be a throw away item once the battery goes dead. I have a 1G iPod mini and I was advised when I visited the genius bar at the Apple Store near my home, that Apple would not replace the battery in my mini, they would just throw the item away. My warrenty will only extend for the continued length of my Apple Care Protection plan with the new unit. Since the only thing wrong with the old unit was the battery, I’m a bit afraid of having a new unit without the warrenty. Will you please advise the performance of your battery when you have been able to assess the work properly?

Snowflakeschance,

I will give my assessment once I receive it.  Actually, I amd receiving the iPod today!!  I can’t wait!! 

From what I read in their website, they are only upgrading the battery for full size iPods 1G-4G (Photo).  They are not updating the battery for minis, nanos, or 5G yet.  Not sure why is this.  My guess would be that it is easier and less risky to change the battery of the previous full size iPods.

My nickname in the forums is Podaddict, so look for my assessment in the boards during the weekend.
