great video. i recently purchased a new ipod battery online, although it was pretty simple to replace, i can see where it would get tough for people. the site i got my battery from also has videos of someone replacing a battery actually using the tools and instructions that are sent to you with your replacement battery. i found this really really helpful. i had a great experience replacing the battery on my own. maybe this can be helpful to some of you out there trying to decide whether or not to just buy a whole new ipod or just replace the battery.
