30 minuten - 2 uren
I used my iPod for about 3 years. Suddenly, the battery lasted only for two hours. I went to the apple-store in zurich. They couldn't tell me how much it will cost to replace the battery. The only solution was to do it myself...
ifixit write: it's a challenge to disassemble the iPod classic. I wasn't sure if I will really get the things apart.
But it was really absolutely no problem at all.
I ordered all the required tools. And it took me about 10 minutes to change the battery. It was easy and the installing guide is just perfect!
Thank you, ifixit
First I was disappointed, cause the new battery lasts as long as the old one. 2 hours. After a few charges it gets better and better. At the moment, it lasts already for about 8 hours. I hope it will get better. One thought of me was that apple programmed a battery-death after a defined hour of operation. And without the knowlege of resetting the software no battery wont last any longer..... (conspiracy theory...??)
