Replace Your Generation 1 or 2 iPod’s Battery

Breathe some new life into your generation 1 or 2 iPod by replacing its battery.

Much hoopla has been raised about the life, or lack thereof, of the iPod’s battery. And while many users of the first 5 GB iPod model are still using the battery with no problem whatsoever, the fact is that batteries do eventually run out of juice. You won’t wake up one day to find your battery dead; rather, expect a long, slow descent that involves shorter and shorter battery life between recharges. Eventually, you’re going to have to replace the battery.

Tip

This hack shows how to replace the battery for a G1 or G2 iPod. If you have a G3 iPod, see “Replace Your Generation 3 iPod’s Battery” [Hack #16] . If you have an iPod mini, see “Replace Your iPod Mini’s Battery” [Hack #17] .
