2200mAh Replacement Battery for iPod Classic and iPod Video (5th gen, 5.5 gen, 6 6.5 & 7th gen)

  • Compatible with all capacities of iPod Classic / Video (30GB, 60GB, 80GB, 120GB, 160GB)
  • Thin profile - able to fit with iFlash adapters & most hard drives
  • LG manufactured cell
  • Rated 3.7v
  • 2200mAh rated capacity. The same dimension cells have also been rated at 2000mAh. The actual capacity may be between these values
  • 90mm x 40mm x 4mm Dimensions (suitable for slim [10.5mm] or thick [13.5mm] iPods under certain circumstances, see below)
Upgrade your iPod Clasic or iPod Video with these batteries. They have a much higher capacity (almost 3x) than the original 750mAh batteries, and are newly manufactured so will have a much longer lifespan than older Apple batteries. These cells are able to also perform even better when in an iPod with flash storage. I've personally tested one to play the entire Lord of the Rings film trilogy twice over, which is almost a full day of video playback non-stop (this is with a SD card based iPod, which is more energy efficient. Results vary of course)

These batteries are much longer than the original battery, so please be aware of the mounting process before buying. If you have a hard drive in your iPod, you will need to ensure that the rear case of the iPod is the thick type, to allow the battery to sit atop the hard drive. However, if you have a 80GB iPod Video, or a 160GB 6th Gen Thick iPod Classic, the hard drive inside is thicker than usual, so you'll need to repalce the hard drive with a slimmer one. They're all compatable with each other so you can just use a HDD from any other 5th or 7th gen and everything will work. If you have a slim SD adapter in the iPod (see for guidance) then the battery and SD adapter can fit inside a slim or a thick rear case, just be careful mounting everything so that there's room.

Battery Use

When installing a new battery, it is best to fully charge the device, and then use it to drain it to empty. Then, recharge it fully again. This helps the battery management system understand the new capacity and provide better charge level estimates.

Factors affecting battery life include screen brightness, media file type (mp3, m4a), storage media type (HDD, SSD, SD), media type technology (mSATA, SDXC UHS-1). Apparently other issues such as a faulty headphone socket may also impact battery life. Battery longevity can be affected by storage temperatures and charging behaviour.
