iPod Shuffle 1st Gen Battery Replacement

After my shuffle started behaving weird and not charging anymore when plugged into a USB port or a car charger, it completely ran out of battery - not even enough power for the red battery empty light. Guess it really ran dry...

So I looked around on the web and found instructions for opening my shuffle here: http://www.hackaday.com/2005/03/02/h...e-disassembly/

After playing around with a knife as instructed for some minutes it really popped open. So I ordered a replacement battery online (biggest marketplace on earth of course) for as low as 1 EURO plus shipping. Batttery has even more Ah than original (300 vs. 230Ah). Right now I'm waiting for the battery to arrive and I'll see how the replacement works.

But spending a single digit amount and some time on a new battery sure beats getting a new iPod.
