You can get a new one for about $60. I have a 3rd gen iPod with a weak battery, too. I stopped in at an Apple Store a couple of weeks ago, and was told that Apple will replace it for $60 with a brand new 3rd gen iPod for $60. I told him I bought it used, and he said it doesn't matter. The next time I go to the Apple Store, my iPod is going with me.
P.S. Apple also offers this deal on its web site, though it has broader language, e.g., repair or replace with a new or refurbished iPod. I'm guessing that's just CYA language, but I'm just bringing mine into the store, so I can get a new one ASAP.
