iPod Nano battery doesn't last long anymore - replace battery or replace the iPod?

The battery no longer retains its charge - I get like an hour or two before the battery symbol goes red.

I bought a black iPod 4GB nano as soon as they were launched.

So, do I try and replace the battery or just buy a new Nano?

I have used it very heavily, but I don't want to just throw 4GB of flash memory away.

I suppose I could use it like a 4GB flash drive (If I 'enable disk use') - that wouldn't even require a battery.

Entirely dependent on the price of new batteries (and possibly the job of changing it) where you live, I'd say. As you imply the memory itself is good, I would at least check around. I would guess somewhere around 30 - that would correspond roughly with the ex VAT price in Scandinavia, including the job. If so, worth it? I'd say yes.
