It is very common for the iPod battery to wear out after a year or two. If the charge in your battery seems to be lacking, you likely just need a battery replacement.
Apple made the iPod classic very difficult to open, so we are unable to offer a do-it-yourself kit. However, our technicians are able to open the iPod classic using special tools and techniques, and we can change the battery for you right here in our shop.
Our 580 mAh battery has the same juice as the original 580 mAh battery that came inside your 80GB or 120GB iPod classic, and it will provide 31 - 33 hours of music or 5 - 6 hours of videos in between a full charge.
Our 850 mAh battery has the same juice as the original 850 mAh battery that came inside your 160GB iPod classic, and it will provide 40 hours of music or 7 hours of videos in between a full charge. These are conservative estimates, 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 6th Generation classic iPod:
Note: Please do not be confused by the word 'classic'. The iPod classic is a relatively recent Apple product, as is more specifically called the 6th Generation iPod classic. Models that precede the iPod classic (from most recent to oldest) are the 5th Generation iPod Video, the iPod Photo, the 4th Generation iPod, the iPod mini, the 3rd Generation iPod, and the 1st/2nd Generation iPod. All of these models are still very worthy of repair, so click on your model to see products and services that are right for your device!
