iPod 5th Generation (Video) Battery Replacement

Moderate

Mijn probleem

Dusted off the old iPod, hooked it up, and to my dismay the screen kept flickering back and forth between the logo, and a battery animation stating that the iPods Batteries were extremely low.

Mijn oplossing

Saw a remark on ifixit's search result that said something to the effect of, "Got a dead gadget, don't get rid of it, repair it." So I did a bit of youtube browsing to see how difficult the separation of the face and the case would actually be, and surprisingly enough they said just order a tool slide it around and your halfway done. I would have done this years ago if I knew it was going to be so simple once properly equipped.

Mijn advies

Found my old 5th Generation iPod in a closet one day, plugged it in an it wouldn't hold a charge. So I took the initiative to repair it myself, it took me more time to figure out my exact model to track down a new Battery than it did to actually place my order with ifixit. The package delivered in two days with basic shipping, now I am back up and running. I love older technology because it is more open to being loaded up from my existing library than its newer counterparts. The current IPhones and IPads require a bit more finagling to load up mp3, videos, etc. unless you have purchased everything through iTunes exclusively, and let's be honest, who hasn't acquired some media through other means? A lot of stuff isn't even available through their site.
