Apple is replacing certain 1st-generation iPod nanos. In rare cases, some units' batteries may overheat and pose a safety risk. Affected iPod nanos were purchased between September 2005 and December 2006. If your iPod nano qualifies, you can order a replacement online. Replacement models will be warranted for 90 days from the date of service.

gonna give it a try with a non-working one i've got here.

I'd like to have mine replaced with a 5th generation Nano but it'll probably be one of those silly current generation ones.
Regardless of the model, the capacity of my 2 GB nano ought to more than double since only 8 GB refurb nanos show up in the Apple Store.

My email from Apple said I would be sending mine back. They also said if I had a laser inscription, I would lose it. Looks like we will get back someone else's after getting a new battery.

I don't want a current gen unit and I'm reasonably satisfied we'll be getting a 1st gen unit back. I still have and use my 1st gen 4GB Nano and it manages about 4hrs on a charge so maybe I won't be eligible for a replacement? I'll have to check it tonight.

If I had my choice, I'd rather have a 5th Gen Nano as a replacement, the last one with the video capability. OK, I have an 8GB and Mrs. Z has a 16 GB already. Best implementation of the classic iPod interface and mix of features. Sensibly perfect, IMO.
