Rating: 5/5 Just right. July 26, 2018 Hard to find batteries for classic iPods. But I got one here and it works great. Thank you for having parts to discontinued Apple products. My iPod is now up and running again.

Rating: 5/5 IPod Classic replacement battery and iSesamo tool November 26, 2017 I have an iPod Classic 5th gen 160 GB model MC297C (uses thin battery) bought late 2010. A full charge was giving me only about 45 minutes of music, so the new battery has allowed me to revive my iPod Classic.

I got in Oct 2017 the NewerTech 580 mAh battery replacement kit, extra plastic pry tools and the iSesamo tool and had them shipped to Canada duty and taxes paid, so they arrived within days.

I installed battery Nov 2017. I used anti-static mat and wrist strap. It took about 2-1/2 hours to pry off back cover. Way tougher than changing RAM and installing SSD in my Mac. The rest of job i.e. changing battery and replacing cover took only about 30 minutes; YouTube videos were useful for explaining how to safely disconnect ribbon connector (I think I used a mini screwdriver for this).

I had a total of 6 plastic pry tools and they barely helped to maintain apart the sections that I had managed to unclip. Their curved end gets easily damaged and put out of action. The iSesamo is indispensable if you want to be able to undo the approx 11 clips without becoming totally frustrated and doing something imprudent which may damage the iPod. It worked so well that the only damage I can notice on the casing are scratch marks on the metal sides of the iPod. They should include the iSesamo as part of kit and simply increase the kit price.

Be aware that the battery loses its charge quickly over the course of a few weeks while sitting unused. For a newly installed battery, if it has been freshly recharged (within last 7 days) you can listen to music for more than 4-1/2 hours. If it was recharged 3 weeks ago, you will get barely over 1 hour of music.

Rating: 5/5 What I expected! September 17, 2017 My old iPod battery was getting old and acting funny. This replacement battery did the trick. It comes with nylon pry tools to open the iPod, but these are mostly useless. Look elsewhere for tools to open up your iPod. Once my device was open, it literally took 2 minutes to replace the battery.

Rating: 5/5 IPod Classic Battery replacement. July 23, 2017 I am very happy with the battery replacement kit but there are a couple areas that could have been better. First of all.. I broke both ends of both of the pry tools that came with the kit within five minutes. I called Macsales and they sent four more pry tools. In the meantime I decided to shop for my own tools and found a iPod repair kit at Fry's for $3 that had a couple pry tools that did the trick. One other suggestion I have is that the battery replacement video says to start prying the case open at the bottom of the iPod near the opening for the power plug. I found it to be easier to start along the right side and then work along the top and bottom. This also helped prevented me from bending the strip of metal above the power cutout. My last recommendation is with the actual battery replacement. The video shows installing the battery to the bottom cover prior to plugging the tiny cable to the tiny connector. I found it to be easier to connect the battery cable first and then secure the battery to the back cover.

All in all I am very satisfied with the battery kit and am extremely happy with my purchase. My iPod had been dead for the past 2-3 years and now it works like a champ again. I highly recommend this kit.
