Anyone changed an iPod mini battery?

Message #1 - Posted 2007/01/23 - Mr B;

I've found instructions on how to do it here:
<http://www.ifixit.com/cart/customer/ipod.php> and it looks straightforward - at least easier than changing the battery on my Palm T3 - which was a right faff - but maybe they aren't telling the whole story?

Any experience? tips??

The Watch Repair Shop in Metro Centre Gateshead does these. That's where mine's going when it becomes too short. Don't fancy the DIY method much.

Yes, done it last month, fitted a 750mha? battery 25% extra power apparently.£10 ish inc. delivery off ebay, a seller in Newark Notts. If it comes with a tiny screwdriver, then it will be pretty simple, if not, then you'll need to buy the tiny driver.
Took little time to do it.The hardest bit was sliding it back into the outer shell - it is a bit tight when pushing it back. Also, the top and bottom are stuck on with glue, the instructions I had said the glue would restick back down. It didnt. A dob of UHU sorted that. Alan.

That's a lovely example of a business moving with the times and exploiting new - but similar - markets. Seriously.
