Changing iPod Batteries

Just to save you some time searching the internet for supplier if you ever need to change the batteries in your iPod, which can be quite frustrating if you live in Canada (the sane version of the U.S.A), and
  • you don't want to pay $30 for shipping a two ounce item with FedEx (not including duties & taxes, mind you)
  • you don't want top dollar to some eBay hack for a battery with poorer performance than the orignal one
  • you don't want to give you credit card number to a shady internet store in New Jersey
Future Shop carries iPod replacement batteries.

Although, sad to say, checking stock on-line before you drive across town to pick one up doesn't always work. When you get there, they may not be able to find them. Which means you have to travel to another quadrant of the city to get them.

I can, however, recommend the Sonnet replacement battery they sell, which includes tools & a CD with installation instruction video. Took me about twenty minutes to do.
