How can I get a new iPod, or at least a new iPod battery, for free using my still current Apple Care Plan?

I have a G3, 20gb, black/white iPod with an 8 hour battery. I timed the battery yesterday and now it lasts 4 hours and 35 minutes! My Apple Care Plan expires in March of 2006, but I can't take advantage of it unless my battery charge drops below 4 hours (50% of original). I must make my battery fail, or get my iPod to stop working altogether, before the expiration date! How can I abuse my battery to get it to drop below 4 hours in the next two months?
NOTE: I talked to Apple, and they told me that dropping it, smashing it, and other similar solutions are out. They don't cover accidental damage.
