iPod Nano Battery

Does your iPod nano look a little sick? Does the battery quickly lose its charge? It may be time for a battery replacement 

IPod batteries have a limited life cycle. They can only be recharged a certain number of times before they start to wear out. Fortunately, the batteries can be replaced. Unfortunately, the battery is not easily accessible and changing it yourself will void your warranty.

You have two basic options when it comes to changing the battery in your iPod nano. You can send the whole unit back to Apple where they will replace it with a new or refurbished one. The cost for this service is $59 plus $6.95 for shipping. The other option is to buy a replacement battery from a third-party manufacturer and replace it yourself or have a technician replace it for you.

Be warned, though, that if you open up the case of the iPod nano you void the warranty. Only attempt the battery replacement by yourself if you have had the nano for more than one year. If the battery fails before that time, you can send it back to Apple for a free replacement.

If you buy a third-party battery, you will probably receive tools and instructions which will help you replace the battery. The case has to be opened up by inserting a small plastic tool all around the edge. The battery itself is held in place with adhesive tape so it has to be forced out of the case.

Replacing the battery is a simple matter of unplugging the old one and plugging in the new one. The new battery is installed back over the adhesive strips and the cover is replaced.

One advantage of buying a third-party replacement battery is having the option of buying an extended life battery. Some iPod replacement battery kits offer more powerful batteries than the original which means more playback time on each charge.

Just be careful you are getting the correct battery for your iPod nano. Each iPod model has a different type of battery, so a battery for an iPod mini, for example, cannot be used in an iPod nano.
