Where to buy a new iPod battery

by Robert Stevens  |  May 21, 2009

The battery – the part which fuels the entire iPod, although it is rechargeable, it has a limited life. That means that it can't be recharged forever and ever and at some point it ceases to power up the iPod and at its turn, the iPod ceases to function. Taking into account the particularity of an iPod / iPhone battery, when such a thing happens the common user has two big possibilities. The first would be to send the iPod in service at Apple – the entire procedure will cost almost $66 ($7 for the shipping and $59 for the actual replacement). The second option implies a lot of dexterity and care as it implies changing the battery oneself. Such a procedure was explained in detail in a past article called: “How To Replace An iPod Battery".

If the second option is chosen, the problem that appears immediately is where to buy that new battery that will replace the old one. Online can be found numerous products which pretend to be similar with the original battery. It's very important to acquire the right type of battery compatible with the iPod. In general the batteries are sold according to the iPod's generation. One can check exactly the generation of his iPod at: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1353.

So, a first stop is the “iPod Juice”. There, one can find various battery kits, with various capacities and at different prices – the average price for a kit is $30. The batteries are 100% compatible with the original iPod and are guaranteed for 10 years. A kit contains: the battery (pay attention to the mAh value), the iOpener – a tool which helps to open the iPod without damaging it and the instructions. Attention! for what iPod generation the battery kit is suitable.

Another stop is: “Newer Technology”. The site offers various models of batteries compatible with different models of iPod. The average price of a battery is $20. The batteries are sold together with two “non – abrasive nylon installation tools” and with one year warranty.

The last stop is at “iPods 99”. This site is more easily to use because it offers the possibility to choose first the model of the iPod and according to that choice it offers different battery solutions available. Their offer include a new battery, installation tools and instructions. The offer comes also with a “ONE YEAR Money Back Guarantee”. The average price for a battery is $20.

As one can see, such a solution – to replace the battery of the iPod oneself – is a meticulous job but it is also a cheaper one. Moreover, all the batteries presented claim to have an increased capacity than the original one. But, no matter the advantages, such a procedure implies a great risk: to damage the iPod. So, before one decides to change the battery, he must be sure that he has all the correct facts and figures.

You raised a pretty valid point here but don't you think its conflicting. What I mean to say that your point of view is different from traditional views on this topic.
