    So my Classic has gone from it's old 20ish hour battery life to a measly 2-2 1/2 hours if I'm lucky.
    My question is has anyone bought a good battery for the first gen 80GB Classic and if so does it outperform the old stock one?

    Thanks!

    I'd use apple's battery replacement program. You get a refurb iPod the same model as your current one. It is $60 and you don't have to worry about breaking it when replacing the battery (which I did once). It will cost more, but it is like getting a new iPod. I did it recently and was quite happy.

    I get my iPod battery replacements on eBay. You might have to wait a bit for shipping since the best deals ship from China though.

    I did the same thing for my fifth gen iPod. It worked well for the year between replacing the battery and giving it to a friend. I've yet to hear him complain about the battery life.
