i have a video ipod and im leaving for the phillippines in a month so i was looking into buying a ipod battery backup for the plane ride. any advice?
Before I went on vacation, I bought a $5 charger at some $5 store...it works really really well. It keeps the charge longer than the actual USB charger. So buy one of those things, take it with you to the Phillippines, and charge it there. D
I know you didn't say it, but if the issue is that the iPod battery isn't lasting as long, you [ib84fcf39d5]can[/ib84fcf39d5] replace it.
I've been meaning to buy one of these
bad boys... because my iPod battery is about a year old and the charge isn't nearly what it used to be and if I'm not mistaken, these batteries hold as much of a charge as the new batteries in the 5.5th G iPods. 45% more than the original 5G iPod battery!

Wow, thanks for that link. I think I'm going to buy one of these and try to repair my old 4th Gen.
umm be careful I know some countries dont use the same amount of power we do (voltage) it could get kinda messy for the backup if you try to charge it...

Make sure you get the baterry specifically for the 4 G iPod (not to insult your intelligence), because the link I posted went to the replacement for the 5 G. They sell replacements for all.

when I posted, but the milliamperage is better on the ones from the site you posted.[/quote6cc7e6474e]
Yeah... I did a TON of googling and searched eBay for several minutes looking for the highest mAh and this was the best I could find. I found a generic model on eBay for a good bit less, but you can't compare an Energizer battery to a store brand so I didn't think it'd be a good idea to go for the cheaper of the two... and I didn't see it last time I was at the Duralast site, but they received some kind of nomination from some kind of electronics magazine for the iPod replacement batteries, but they must have removed the image from the site...
I got one off of ebay for like 8 bucks and replaced it myself on my 2nd Gen.
