If the battery in your iPod Video doesn't hold a charge like it used to, or doesn't hold a charge at all, then you likely just need a new battery.

Compared to the original Apple battery that came in your 5th Generation 30GB iPod Video, our 580 mAh 3.7-volt Lithium-Ion battery provides 12 to 16 hours of music or 2 to 3 hours of video between charges.

Compared to the original Apple battery that came in your 5th Generation 60GB or 80GB iPod Video, our 850 mAh 3.7-volt Lithium-Ion battery provides 17 to 21 hours of music or 3 to 4 hours of video between charges. This is a conservative estimate, as we'd rather under-promise and then over-deliver (that being said, we regularly receive feedback from our customers reporting even longer playtimes).

This battery is guaranteed for ten years, so if it ever fails to keep a full charge during this period of time, let us know and we will give you a new one (if you purchased a do-it-yourself kit) or re-install one for you (if you sent your device to us for the installation) at no additional charge! No other website offers this kind of coverage.

Look at the power and value this battery provides for your 5th Generation Video iPod:

Our complete battery replacement kit includes our specialized blue plastic tool, durable flathead screwdriver, and the most detailed battery replacement instructions with color photographs available.

Still unsure about installing the battery yourself? No problem. Let us install it for you!

We offer a variety of same-day shipping options from us to you, perfect for any level of urgency.

I purchased the full kit and it exceeded my expectations. Took me 20 minutes and my battery was changed out. I recommend this kit for anyone that needs a new battery in their ipod video.

When I noticed that the battery on my iPod wasn't working that well anymore, I decided to Google it to see what I could find. I ended up coming upon this website, and I was happy that this company offered a home battery replacement kit. I didn't think I could do it, but the instructions were very easy to work with. This was so much cheaper and easier than I anticipated, and the best part of all was that my battery replacement was guaranteed for 10 years, even though I replaced it at home. Obviously, I don't anticipate having any more issues with my iPod battery, but at least I know what company to turn to if I do!

As it happens I live a few hours from San Antonio so it was here a day after I ordered it. That was fast. I watched the video, read the instruction sheet, and that took longer than the actual replacement, including opening the case. It was easy! And this was faster and cheaper than buying a replacement player and loading the music on it.

I ordered a replacement battery and kit for my husband's 5th Generation IPOD. It took 5 days total to order and receive the kit and another 20 - 25 minutes to completely install the new battery - once I got the IPOD open :) :). I am so pleased with everything that I just ordered a battery for my son's IPOD.
Thank you so much MIlliamp and I will be referring your website to family and friends.

I purchased the replacement battery for my Ipod on friday. The next wednesday it was delivered at my doorstep. So from US to Belgium in under 5 days.

I used the youtube instruction video and it was back up and running in 5 mins.

Big thumbs up

I ordered my kit on Wednesday and it arrived in the mail Friday. I had my dad help me because he fixes computers and stuff. He watched the video a few times and read over the instructions. It only took him eight minutes to fix it. It would have been faster but we couldn't get the little thing the battery goes into to close down. ")
I am so pleased at how fast and easy this was. I will definitely be referring friends here.
Totally awesome. "))

I did not have much faith when I ordered the product, seemed to go to be true. However, it only too me about 10 minutes to install (instructions were great) and I\'m up and running again. Thanks

Author: Jeff R.

I live in Houston so it was here a day after I ordered it. After giving the instructions a quick read and installing the battery I was up and running my iPod in less than 24 hrs after my original battery died. Thanks!!

Feedback From Our Customers:

To Whom It May Concern: My iPod was down to about 1 hour of use without recharging. I was afraid I'd have to buy a new one, but I wasn't looking forward to the expense, and I definitely was not looking forward to the new display on later versions of iPod. I liked my 5th Generation and I wanted to keep it. After a brief search on the Internet, I came across your site. I ordered the replacement battery, and after it arrived I was a little hesitant to break into this delicate machinery. However, your instructions were all I needed. That, and a little patience (which is hard for me to come by). Ripping open my iPod was actually a lot more fun than I thought it would be. I charged it overnight directly from the outlet on the wall like you recommend, and it played all day at work without having to be recharged. It's like I just bought the thing, I'm so thrilled with it! You're providing a great service. I'm looking forward to the 10 Year Guarantee. Thanks very much!
B.R. from Budd Lake, New Jersey (Order M14244BM)! I received my iPod battery (80 Gb Gen 5.5 Video) in the mail only 10 minutes ago and I have already replaced it and it is charging! Simply amazing! You have saved me hundreds of dollars by not having to buy a new iPod and a lot of time re-creating my 60 Gb of music and video! The instructions included with the battery were very detailed, easy to understand and matched exactly what I did/saw with my actual iPod. Although I am very mechanically inclined, ANY one who has NEVER picked up a tool in their lives could change their own battery - thanks to your tools and instructions! Anyway, add me to you list of VERY SATISIFED AND HAPPY customers! Bravo! Sincerely,

iPod Video Battery Stories

I am working in my dream job and you might think I am crazy. I am a Zamboni driver for a professional sports arena. You might be asking yourself, "What the heck is a Zamboni?" Well, that's the machine that you see in a sports arena that makes the ice smooth for ice skaters. Without this machine and the driver there would be debris on the ice that might hurt someone. I have been a driver since high school and I love my work. Not only do I get to drive, but I also get to meet the members of sports teams. I have known many of the local guys since they were in high school and many have gone on to make it big in ice hockey. Although it might look like an easy job there is actually an art to it. You see the Zamboni actually resurfaces the ice and there is a certain way to do it. I take my iPod sometimes to listen to it while I work. I have to keep one ear on my iPod and the other ear on what is going on around me. Earlier this week I was driving the machine as usual, when I found I was headed for an iPod repair. I thought it might be a bit ridiculous trying to get it done but I decided to try it anyway. With any luck I could get it repaired instead of having to buy a brand new iPod. You see, I was riding around and getting into the zone of driving when I hit a divot in the ice. Usually these aren't a big deal but this time it bumped me just enough to knock me off balance. My iPod hit the ice and the casing broke open. I took the pieces back to my place and after I put as much of it as I found in a small box, I went on the Internet to look for an iPod repair company. I was relieved to find several. I was very happy to be able to send it off right away and expected that it would take four to six weeks to get it back. I was surprised when it came back quicker than I expected. I now know that should anything happen again I can send it to the iPod repair company for a nominal cost which gives me more security.
