TechRestore offers lifetime iPod battery replacement

TechRestore has announced a $99.99 lifetime iPod battery replacement service. The iPod Battery Freedom service for all full-sized iPod models (1G/2G, 3G, 4G, photo and mini) includes installation of a replacement high capacity iPod battery “with at least 30% more capacity than the original iPod battery” and return overnight shipping for the first battery replacement.

A quick check of the program’s terms and conditions reveals that you are eligible to get a replacement battery only once every 18-months, and that (in addition to your costs of shipping your iPod to the company) you’ll have to pay a $12.99 return shipping charge each time a future battery is replaced.

nice, direct competition with apple. since it costs $99 for apple to “replace” your battery (they actually just give you a refurbished one). I think a lot of people will choose to do this for the same price so they get more power and can replace it again—although chances are that by the time a 2nd battery goes you’re just going to get a new ipod ‘cause yours will be so lame. I doubt they’ll be replacing too many multiple batteries per customer, but people will subscribe for this over apple. maybe this’ll make apple drop there price a few bucks?

the nice thing about this service over Apple’s battery replacement program is the fact that at least you get YOUR iPod back…not a refurbished one that will need to be loaded up w/music when you get it back.

Do you really get a re-furb back from Apple?  If that’s the case, I actually might be more interested in it, because I assume the re-furb would come without all the scratches my current iPod has ;)
