The battery came with the tools necessary to open my iPod, and it was very easy to do. Getting the factory battery out was the most difficult part, because it is glued to the case, but I just pried it out with the same tools I used to open the iPod. Hooking the battery up was simple and I had the iPod back to working order in no time. My 5th generation 30GB iPod video is now working perfectly again. It's like new!

I know its the design of the Ipod, but the thing is a friggin pain to open, and these tools are basically ineffective. They're really nothing more than a wedge (they will still scratch your ipod up if you're not careful). And you're bound to hurt your hands once or twice.

That being said, once the new battery is in, everything worked perfect. Great battery life now. Changed a bricked ipod that apple wanted some ridiculous sum to fix into a brand new functioning one.

Just make sure you don't get something in the display when you're taking the thing open. a piece of lint or something got stuck in front of the display screen so I had to open the darn thing back up.

My Ipod reached a point, where it couldn't hold a charge for more than 5 min - 2 on shuffle. SO I looked around and found this battery. Very easy to switch out the old and in with the new. Now it works like the day I got it!! The battery now lasts all day at work. You could say, I'm thankful!

Took about 10 minutes to do. Taking the cover apart was the hardest part to do as most reviewers have mentioned. It fired up with no problems. I haven't had any problems with using it.
Please see pictures that I uploaded for this item.

My wife's 30 GB 5th Generation IPOD finally lost it's battery. Apple wants a bunch of money to replace it. This kit was a very reasonable alternative for anyone with moderate technical skills. The included plastic tools are crap and don't work for prying open the case (but they are GOOD at cutting skin, be careful!). I used a sharp knife blade with minimal damage to the case. Once inside, it was a delicate operation to get the new battery to plug in to the provided slot on the circuit baord, but completely doable! Now, the IPOD works like new and holds a charge for hours.

It's always a bit worrisome when it comes to replacing an OEM battery, but this battery seems to be working really well so far only after a few days....

From the picture, you might be wondering why the battery looks a like solid black plastic or metal rectangle, and that it doesn't look anything like the factory one inside your iPOD. Heck, before it showed up in the mail and before I had a first-hand look at it, I thought it was a rectangular battery myself! But in fact, it's not. What you are seeing in the photo there is actually a thin cardboard box or cover with the actual battery tucked inside of it, kinda like a piece of gum tucked into a fancy wrapper -- like what you see these days with that stupid expensive designer gum. Whatever happened to just plain old Juicy Fruit? Anyway, the battery itself that's wrapped up inside the cardboard looks very similar to the iPOD's OEM one. Even the long, flat copper ribbon cable running out of the battery like an extension cord is nearly an exact copy of the the original. So basically, what I'm getting at, is that everything looks nearly OEM, fits perfectly, and works just fine, even with that cardboard cover, so fear not.

Another thing. If you wait until your battery arrives, you will see that it comes with two plastic tools that you can use to open up your iPOD without damaging it. I wish I would have waited, believe me.

Do yourself a favor and replace the old junky battery in your iPOD with this one, and regain HOURS AND HOURS of listening time that you've lost over the years. The price is great. Highly Recommended!!!

-------

Don't forget to replace your iPOD's worn out scratched up faceplate too with a new one if you plan on replacing the battery. Then you only have to crack open your iPOD once!

Brought my 30gb iPod Classic back to life. It was hard to get the case opened, but I eventually worked it loose with the tools in the kit. After that, it was easy.
I seem to get about the same playtime from a charge as the original, and after a month, it is working fine.

I had an old iPod that stop working due to battery issues, I kept it in a drawer for a while not thinking of using it anymore, them my little daughter (7) wanted an audio player so I thought this was a good beginners audio player. I was able to do the repair but cracked the LCD. Get the instructions before hand, there are none in the package and get yourself aware of every little detail so the LCD won't crack on you. Above all have patience doing the repair.
