Default Beware of old stock gigabeat batteries

I bought one that looks just like the one in your third link, on ebay, but from a different seller. It was sealed in the package but lasts only two hours in the gigabeat. These lithium ion batteries last only 2-3 years, used or not. I expect that other sellers also have old stock with warn out shelf life. If anyone knows where to get a fresh, newly-manufactured gigabeat S battery, I would very much like to know about it.
