I'd try eBay for APP for your iPod for cheaper. I believe that the advertised run-time for a gen 2 iPod Nano is 24hours.

That it looks different to what Apple sell should be a bit of a clue. The actual advertisement is also less than informative although the seller seems to have a proper feedback record. As Apple sell two protection plans for iPods (*AFAIK): $59 for a mini or nano (http://store.apple.com/133-622/WebObjects/australiastore.woa/wa/RSLID?mco=6C04E099&nplm=MA964FE/A) and $89 for the others (http://store.apple.com/133-622/WebObjects/australiastore.woa/wa/RSLID?mco=6C04E07A&nplm=MA518FE/A) and I have no idea how it would work at all, e.g. do you buy a serial number that then becomes linked to a product when you activate it with Apple? So basically I have no immediately helpful advice but I wouldn't be rushing out to give the guy money and feel 100% about it.

* AFAIK: i.e. I looked into it and that is what I found at the Apple store.

A link to Apple Terms and Conditions document (http://www.asia.apple.com/support/products/pdf/Terms_and_Conditions_English_APP_iPod) for those inclined.


EDIT: just message the eBay guy and ask him for what iPod model the plan is. If it turns out to be for the nano/mini then his 'buy it now' price plus $10 shipping will give you a $9 discount (and no peace of mind until activated). Don't spend it all at once. :D

At that cost it would probably be better to buy directly from Apple.
