We've seen replacement batteries for many old iPods, and as the fifth-generation iPod comes closer to its second birthday, do-it-yourself options have started to emerge. Blue Raven Technology's Video iPod Battery Replacement Kits promise to "restore your iPod to full power," with 580mAh or 850mAh batteries for 30GB and 60/80GB models, respectively. Each kit includes a plastic prying tool, a screwdriver, and instructions for replacement; you can also pay a fee to have Blue Raven partner technicians do the installation for you.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
