    I just woke my iPod 3rd generation 30GB (10 years old :eek: ) , I dont think it has been "alive" for at least 5 years hehe.. gave it a full charge & synced some music...
    this thing is as new.. unbelievable
    my main profession is I´m a commercial-offshore/hazmat diver and sometimes we decompress for 24 hours...
    my "old" iPod-touch gen 2 broke down and I didnt feel like driving to buy a new iPod I thought maybe my 10 year old would do.. and so it does :)

    Mine doesn't hold that much of a charge. :(

    well, i did put a new battery in my old iPod 3rd or 4th, don't remember. was a bit tricky but worked like a charm. was not expensive either. bought it on ebay for 20 bucks or so. well worth the fun.

    My iPod Color (4th gen?) is still holding a decent charge. Of course I've been careful to make sure the battery never drains by recharging it once a month.

    And I wind up using it a couple of times a year.

    That is what I'm doing with my iPod Nano. My iPod 3rd generation actually started to suffer from battery and hard drive issues in late 2006/early 2007 though. It still acts as wonky as it was then, and I'm surprised it even still half-works. I replaced it with the iPod Video the week the issues starting happening.

    I recently did the same thing and pulled out my 3rd generation iPod. Mine doesn't hold any charge but when it's plugged in it works wonders! I really love the 3rd generation iPod, the three buttons are so neat!

    Is it just me or are all old school iPods built like tanks?!

    Ehhhh, they just have thicker material and then the extra plastic.
