    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    I bought this to restore an older iPod and bring ti back to life and this did just that! I have an iPod that would even turn on but after replacing the battery it works like a dream.
    Cons:
    It could be hard to replace if you don't know hat you are doing. I can't comment on how long that battery lasts compared to th...

    Great for the money

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

    Pros:
    This battery brought life back to my old iPod. Before replacing the battery would last around 30 min. After replacing the battery, it last 4-5 hrs. Not quite as good as the original battery but for the price, it's an amazing deal.
    Cons:
    This battery doesn't last quite as long as the original. But a great value for the price. The iPod case openers are quite chea...

    A nice replacement battery

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Found my old 15gb ipod 3g that was collecting dust in the garage. It was still working, but the battery was dying really fast (could only use it connected to the charger). The battery was easy to replace, the manual was very useful. I use it everyday for ...
    Cons:
    The included tools are very weak, thankfully it comes with a pair - destroyed one on my first attempt. I'd probably use somethi...

    posted by duckyyy on 01/12/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Cheap compared to other replacement solutions that consist of the same exact materials. 2 plastic wedges instead of only 1 others supply. Complete instructions along with pictures in grammatically correct English included. Saved my ipod from the trash.

    Plastic on the 2 tools is a bit weak, the manual says to resharpen them with a knife but both wore down very quickly, actually ...

    Bring life to a 3G

    posted by Australisk on 01/10/2009 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    I had an old 3G 40GB iPod hanging around that was collecting dust and saw this battery on DX for such a low price that I thought I may as well get my old iPod kicking again.
    Cons:
    Rubbish tools to do the job with. I almost feel that they shouldn't include them so that users expect to need a screwdriver or ...

    Pros:
    - Can be used to replace dead 3G iPod batteries - Decent capacity, my friend reported about 7-8 hours on a charge with his 40GB model - Once the iPod was open, installation was pretty easy (just take the old one out, put the new one in, close the iPod) - Ca...
    Cons:
    - Included tools are very flimsy. I had to resort to a swiss army knife to get the iPod open.

    Pros:
    - Easy to install. - Holds hours of energy. - Very cheap. - Tools to open your iPod are included.
