Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
You shouldn't leave a broken lithium ion battery on charge for a long time, it could lead to potentially even more problems. Lithium ion batteries are extremely powerful for their size, but when not properly handled, they *could* start a fire.
If you take the iPod to an Apple Store, they might be able to change the battery for you for a fee, but that's given there are absolutely no other damage done to it. I don't know if they'll be able to tell just by looking at it.
You can save a few bucks from what Apple charges by getting replacement battery from third party vendor, such as:
They offer a replacement service, but you can also choose to install your own battery. As a forewarning, replacing a iPod Nano battery is not easy, given such a tiny space to work with, and how the iPod Nano is sealed.
