    Hey guys, I have a 3G 20gig ipod and my battery was crappy. I mean way crappy, i was only getting mabye 1h 1/2 of playing time with it. So i searched google and i found this. I am not shure that this works for the 5G models but it should work for the other ones

    Steps
    1. Remove the back (the silver part) of the ipod with a jewlers flat-head screwdriver.

    2. Move the Little hard drive out of the way and you will see a little cord coming up from behind teh battery and a couple other things.

    3. Disconect the little battery cord out of its socket, it might be a little stubborn.

    4. Let your ipod sit like that for about 5 min and then plug it back in.

    5. Move the harddrive in place and put the back of the ipod back on and turn on you ipod just to make shure that it turns on.

    And walla, you are done. :) :) :) :) :) This methed really worked for me and now i get about 5h 1/2. WARNING YOUR INSURENCE DOESNT COVER THIS SO BE CAREFULL.

    You may have just reset a bunch of the options that cause the battery to drain faster, like EQ, Soundcheck, Backlight Timer, etc... There really isn't any way that doing that could have let your battery hold any more of a charge than it did before.

    I'm not trying to call you a liar, but check your browser history. Maybe the link is still there... or search Google again with the same term(s).
