The First Generation iPod Nano Recall

The first-gen iPod nano I’m currently listening to is part of a voluntary recall for battery issues. Five years later. This is the first Apple product I ever bought (got it as an open item at Best Buy, two days after the second generation Nano was released) so I have seriously mixed emotions about sending it back. That, and there are elements of the playlist that have remained untouched since college. There’s a strange purity in that, no?
