the first thing I did was scope out the innards for potential service issues. The big, glaring one? The fact that the nano's battery is attached to the main board with solder joints. What does this mean? any battery replacement will necessitate a trip to apple, or someone with some good soldering skillz.
Electricity tastes good. No, seriously.
Dunno, I reackon that when battery replacment time comes around it will be easier to just connect the new battery to the old wires using a little bit of solder and shrink wrap, I'd be more worried about getting the case apart and backtogether without destroying it. (not that my nano will survie that long before I manage to wash and tumble dry it if my experiances with shuffles are anything to go by)
Those crazy Japanese modders! There probably wasn't enough room for a connector. Im sure the battery won't be an issue after all that has happened. Not sure. Man I feel the need to buy one......naughty, naughty. :pinch: -maestro

From what I can tell, the battery is NOT soldered to the main board. There's a battery cap that's taped down and the wires run from the cap, not from the battery.
