The battery on my iPod was pretty well dead. It would only run for 35 minutes after showing a full charge.

I sent a cheque for £15.50 to ipodstop and received a replacement battery and the tools needed to open the case.

The kit showed up in two days and using the instructions and their online video made replacing the battery very easy.

I left the iPod to recharge for a full 24 hours and it now runs like a dream. The new battery actually should be able to run longer than the original.

Being without the iPod for a couple weeks was a complete pain in the butt. Nice to have it back.

It also is nice to know that the battery is replaceable, so along with the iToque this iPod should last a while.

Stuck? - go to StuckGamer

I find them better than those text files you find on Gamefaqs.

I don't get it.

Some people find the image of coffee coming out of an expresso machine so pleasing that they label it porn?

Nope, I still don't get it.
