My generic eBay nano 1G battery only cost $6 shipped with tools. I can't say too much about the battery quality though. It's 850mAh. It has to be good, right?
I know that CompUSA brick and mortar has iPod batteries. I saw a 1G Nano ENERGIZER (famous brand) battery with tools there for $20. There were other iPod batteries for $20-$30. Now the prices are hefty, but I'm sure Energizer batteries are at least as good as the OEM kind. Here is a sample link: Energizer iPod replacement battery
. If I saw this earlier, I would have jumped on it instead of waiting for my battery during the Christmas USPS rush.
I'm itching to mod another iPod, but I don't need another one. I have the diyMod nano, 5G 80gb video, and possibly a touch in the near future.
I bought a pair of Yuin PK3's yesterday from head-direct.
the diyMod had too much treble I think, so I opted for the bassier Yuins. Now i'm thinking about buying a more portable amp to replace my Porta Corda III. Dr. Xin, work on your customer service!!
