iPod Battery Replacement
I bought an iPod three years ago - a third generation (just before the click-wheel, but after the button-whel), and finally the battery’s started to get rather flakey.
Now I just love to get new Apple gizmos, and even though the iPod’s come down in price A LOT (£400 three years ago for a 40GB device Vs £250 now for an 80GB one), I’m still not feeling quite flush enough to go and buy new just because the battery’s dead.
So I bought a new battery from iPodDoctor.co.uk at only £15.99. They cater for all sorts of iPods, and their kits include handy tools for breaking into the case. Best of all though, the web site includes quicktime videos of how to actually carry out the operation. Take no notice of the pdf manuals, and head straight for the videos - much more informative.
So anyway, a week after performing surgery on my beloved iPod, all is well (in fact better than well - extra capacity whe compared with the original battery’s original performance), and I’ll be returning the old battery to iPodDoctor for recyling tomorrow.
The lesson here is to repair rather than replace . . .
