This kit contains one battery, our specialized blue plastic tool, and detailed color instructions - everything you need to safely replace the battery in your 3rd Generation iPod and increase playtime by 83 percent!

Is This the Right Kit for Me? If your iPod has a white front and metallic silver back with four navigation buttons immediately above an all-white ScrollWheel, this is the right kit for you! You can also review our comprehensive list just to make sure. Please Note: The 1100 mAh battery may be a tight fit in a 3rd Generation iPod with a 20GB or 40GB hard drive.

Compared to the original battery that came in your 3rd Generation iPod, our 1100 mAh 3.7-volt Lithium-Ion battery provides 9 to 12 hours of playtime between charges and our 850 mAh 3.7-volt Lithium-Ion battery provides 8 to 11 hours of playtime between charges. These are conservative estimates, as we'd rather under-promise and then over-deliver (that being said, we regularly receive feedback from our customers reporting even longer playtimes).

This robust battery is 100 percent compatible with your iPod, will work with your existing chargers/cables, and is guaranteed for ten years from the date of purchase.

Also included is our specialized blue plastic tool, a fantastic tool that opens your iPod without scratching it. This durable plastic tool has a sharp, wedge-shaped tip that's perfect for slipping into the tight seam on your iPod. The long handle allows you to firmly grasp the tool and safely pry both halves of your iPod apart. Other companies suggest using a metal screwdriver (please don't do this!) or saddle you with two cheap tools that are so flimsy, the tip bends and quickly becomes worthless. And then what do you do? Only we have this specially designed tool to efficiently open your device.

This kit also includes a set of the most detailed instructions available today. Our printed instructions include professionally-taken, color photographs with detailed text that walk you step-by-step through the battery replacement process. Other companies have you go it alone or give a black-and-white photocopy with fuzzy photos that fail to point out areas where additional caution is needed.

A little reluctant to replace the battery yourself? Let us do it for you! Once you've found the right battery replacement kit, scroll down and select one of our four Battery Replacement Options (do it yourself or let us install battery for you) and you'll be on your way to significantly longer playtimes!

And we understand that our customers have different levels of urgency when it comes to shipping your order. That's why we offer several domestic same-day shipping options during check-out.

From the Tech Bench: "Plan to spend 10 – 15 minutes on this project. One of the most challenging things about replacing the battery in the 3rd Generation iPod is opening up the device, a process made much easier with the iOpener. Once you get past this, it's just a matter of removing the hard drive, replacing the battery, re-attaching the hard drive, and then closing everything back up. This battery is a little thicker than the original battery inside your iPod (one of the reasons for its' increased playtime) but it will fit inside the case. Just take your time, go slow, follow the directions, and you'll be all set."
