just so I don't forget, and in case anyone wants to know, i found this tip for showing voltage on an ipod

WRT checking battery life, you can ask the current owner to do this on
 a Mac:
 touch /Volumes/iPodname/iPod_Control/Device/_show_voltage
 Or on a PC, create a file named _show_voltage (no file extension) in
 iPod_Control/Device via notepad or something.
 This will force the iPod to display a numeric readout of the battery
 voltage ranging from 0 to 519. If you ask the owner to fully charge it
 and then let it play for 10 minutes to see how much it depletes, you'll
 have a good idea of the quality of the battery.
