I was just about to finalize the purchase of a shiny new battery for my 3G iPod, when I noticed the shipping charges listed on the Sonnet online store.

Sonnet iPod Battery Costs

I'll gladly pay for the battery, but paying $40 US ($10 US more than the cost of the battery in the first place) to have the thing mailed to me is a bit extreme. I'm going to hold off for now, to see if any Canadian stores or companies will be distributing the battery.
