I have an original ipod classic.  Can I get a replacement battery?

    Yes, but not from Apple any longer.

     

    1.  Send it to a third party service center.  This will be a bit cheaper than the Apple route, but you'll have to do some research on which place to send it to. A Google search for "iPod battery replacement" should give you a number of results to work with.

     

    2.  Purchase a replacement battery online and use the appropriate guide over at http://www.ifixit.com/ to walk you through the procedure of swapping out the battery. I would not recommend this route unless you consider yourself handy with repairing small electronics.
