    Is it possible and affordable to replace the battery in an iPod-touch
    (2) or is it better to buy a new one?
    Any experience?

  2. Per HMP L:
    I toasted mine trying to replace the battery. There's a very
    small connector in there that I managed to break.

  3. If you live in a metropolitan area, there are also probably local
    independent fix-it shops-- many who advertise themselves primarily as
    cell phone repair shops. In my area, there's one that has a kiosk at a
    large upscale mall-- fix 'em while you wait or shop...

    I'm pretty sure I'd at least shatter the screen while just trying to get
    the back off.

    You'll need some special tools to remove the display and get access to the
    battery - which is on the very bottom, underneath everything else.

    Bunch of videos to show what you're getting yourself into on Youtube

    If you can't do fine pitch soldering, best to pay someone to replace the
    battery for you.

    Oh the shuffle. Yeah, doesn't look like that battery is readily
    available. If Apple didn't make the battery themselves, you might be
    able to figure out who made it and purchase it somewhere. But it'd
    probably be less trouble to just let Apple replace the battery.[/QUOTE]

    even easier to buy another one. the price is the same.
