PDASmart iPod battery replacement review

iPodHacks has a review of PDASmart’s iPod battery replacement kit.

“Using the plastic tools provided, I was able to pop open the iPod in about a minute, without any marring to the iPod itself. Once open, it was a matter of removing the old battery and simply replacing it with the new. Much more straightforward than I had pictured. Once in place, the iPod came alive (the battery happened to have a bit of charge to it as shipped), I popped the metal shell back in place, and plugged it in for a full charge. So far I’ve used it for most of a work-day in the office and it’s still at 4-ticks on the battery meter. Good as new. Wow - what a difference!”

Is the intent then that the PDASmart battery has a longer battery life than the standard iPod battery, or is it a 1:1 replacement for a battery that’s just not holding a charge as well as it did when first purchased??

For those with older 5 gig iPods….try downgrading your firmware to 1.1 before buying a new battery…otherwise your iPod may kill the new battery too…..downgrading the firmware on my 5 gig significantly increased runtime and standby time…
