iPod nano battery program
iPodResQ today began offering its new iPod nano high-capacity battery program, a nationwide service designed for all Nano owners that want longer play life. The service is performed with a same-day turn around, as iPodResQ sends a custom iBox each customer location in the continental U.S. via an overnight courier to pickup the Nano for overnight delivery back to the iPodResQ service center. PodResQ receives the Nano, installs a new 400mAh high-capacity battery the same day it is received, and returns the device back to the customer overnight. "We are the first company to offer a high-capacity battery for the nano and we are happy to report excellent results from our newest battery that offers an approximate 10 percent increase in play time from the factory battery," said Ryan Arter, President of iPodResQ. Arter also said that a self-install version of the battery is not available due to the complexity of the installation. The iPodResQ iPod nano high-capacity battery program is priced at a $64 flat-rate for all customers inside the continental U.S, and is also provided to customers in Alaska, Hawaii, or any international location at an additional cost to cover extra shipping expenses.
