Rating: 5/5 This was simple and easy! March 7, 2013 I ordered the battery, it was shipped to my home in less than a week. Installed it by myself with a great step by step video from OWC. It took me no longer than 20 min! Battery works great! Couldn't have had better service!

Rating: 5/5 Excellent battery for 5th gen. iPod January 27, 2013 My old iPod would play only one song and then die. But it worked fine with an external battery. So I decided to try this replacement battery. Relatively easy install (great DIY video!) and now my old 5th generation iPod is like new. Thank you!

I would recommend this item to a friend!
