Fresh juice for your 'pod

Best batteries ever?

Some older iPods are finally starting to show signs of long-term wear and tear on their batteries. Some first- and second-gen pods are now only holding partial charges - their batteries have been recharged hundreds of times and they just don't have the electrons to spare anymore. It's kind of like that older cordless phone that your parents have that only lets you talk for 5 minutes because the battery has been hammered flat.

Never fear - your friends at FastMac are ready to pitch in and save your beloved 'pod. Their new iPod battery is being hyped as "the last battery you will ever need"
and claims to have up to 3 times the charge and life-span of the standard factory power brick. Replacement batteries are available for G1, G2, and G3 'pods, and come complete with illustrated step-by-step instructions and the little shims you need to actually open your little darling without pooching it. Have fun.
