Ipod battery question

I bought a used I-Pod 4th generation in good condition, but now I know why the guy selling it was selling it. The batter won't hold a charge for very long.

I know there are lots of places I could go to send it in for a new battery, but wanted fellow ddn'ers opinions or personal recommendations and someplace CHEAP would be nice!

Thanks all!!

What kind of iPod is it? I know you said it's a 4th generation, but if it's a 4th generation iPod touch, it should still be under warranty in which case you should take it to Apple... if it's a nano or something like that it might be a bit of a different story.

There are quite a number of on-line sites plus Amazon.com that advertise Ipod replacement batteries for various generations at prices rangeing from $10-20. Some come with a tool to get you into the thing and videos with a tutorial.

Google "Ipod battery replacement" for a bunch of these places. Apple wants $50-60 to do it depending upon the model. Here is but one such place:

Here is a video on YouTube describing the process. There seem to be videos for every model. This give you some idea of what is involved. To me, this seems like a piece of cake though I do have some experience with electronics. I still think almost anyone can do this. The hardest part is getting the case open, but the vendors seem to provide a tool for doing this. I used the same term to search YouTube.
