    Welcome to our forums.

    Changing out the battery in a Nano is not an easy job. You might find that an independent shop will charge you more to change the battery than your iPod Nano is worth. I've got a couple of 6th generation Nanos that need a battery and find that it's not worth it.

    Hi Brixton - welcome to the forum! I completely agree w/ Chscag - you own a device released in 2008 (first pic below) and replacing the battery is not worth the money vs. upgrading to a newer music device; e.g. I looked on Glyde, where I've sold 3 iPads - the second pic shows what their assessment is of a 5thG Nano - my MP3 music is on an iPod Touch 2G which is OLD - my suggestion is to make sure your music is stored as a backup, buy a new device, and transfer your files - the old Nano is only worth recycling, sorry. Dave
