Tricky to install – Battery for iPod Video (5-Gen) Reviews

posted by neoseeker on 03/30/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
* Very cheap price * Comes with plastic tools to open the iPod
Cons:
* The plastic tools can easily be broken. This might be a concern since if you break the tools, you might be forced to use a metal one which may scratch or dent your precious ipod

*Thinner than the stock battery which usually indicates lower mah rating
Other:
*Took me a while before i replaced my battery. Maybebecause I just learned how to replace the battery through youtube.

*Not as easy as it looked on youtube
Bottomline:
*If you will get it work, what a very small price to pay to revive your ipod! It is always worth the risk since you are probably not anymore covered by the apple warranty. Trying to replace the battery on your own for a very cheap price is a better option rather than having your ipod lying dead as a paperweight.
