    If your 80GB pod has a thick back which therefore will have a double platter drive there won't be room for it. You need to change it to a single platter one.

    Well what kind of battery can I use other than a stock/replacement that can provide me with more battery life?

    I have an iflash CF adapter with 128gb SDXC card installed, and battery life isn't that great, even with a standard battery replacement I got on ebay

    Well some people have reported that the 2000 battery with the iFlash CF + CF-to-SD board don't fit. I have the 2000 battery with the mSATA board and it barely fits.

    If I were you and really wanted the big battery I would purchase an extra CF-to-SD adapter and then remove the top cover and try to shave off some thickness from it. You would probably need to tape up the SD card to secure it somehow.

    Does anyone know of a good battery replacement for my 80gb 5th Gen ipod video that will give me longer battery life? Or perhaps I need to upgrade to an ipod that can fit a 2000mah battery? If so, which ipod will fit a 2000mah battery?

    Ok, we understand that you are using a 5.5g 80gb, thick back plate model.
    There is a 1900mah battery that sells on ebay, I will get the link for it in a
    moment here, but as the other poster had mentioned, that it might not fit
    with the adapter you are using. Do you have a pic that you can post of
    the adapter with sd card mounted to it. When you say iFlash, are you
    referring to a tarken adapter board ? If so, I have one of those adapters
    with a thick back plate and also the battery, I will check to see if it will
    possibly fit this 1900mah battery, which I have one of:

    Yeah man, like I told the op only way to fit a big battery is to slim down (modify) the SD adapter or find a slimmer one that would work.

    Would a 2000mah battery work in my 80gb 5th Gen ipod video if I used an SSD instead? Or is it designed to fit specific ipod models only?

    Is there any other larger capacity battery I can use with my 80gb 5th Gen ipod video? Largest I have seen is 90mah
