Good battery! – Battery for iPod Video (5-Gen) Reviews

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

Pros:
It isn't expensive at all. The battery works just fine, better than a worn out one at least. Instructions were easy to follow. Build quality is so so but it seems to be an okay battery. Extends my ipod for at least a little while.
Cons:
It's pretty hard to get the ipod open with the cheap plastic tools. Took me a while to get my ipod open and the two green tools didn't help at all. The got worn out before I got my ipod open. Some of the green plastic actually got stuck between the cracks in my ipod. I ended up using flat headed screw drivers to smash the thing open. This porduct could use some better quality tools, but the again, it's a very cheap price.
Other:
Only complaint is the bad tools but aside from the installation, the battery does what it was meant to do.
Bottomline:
Get it if you need a replacement for your 5th gen video ipod if you don't want to waste money and send it into Apple.
