I have a first generation ipod, and its battery has to be charge

This answer was rated:

I have a first generation ipod, and its battery has to be charge within about 4 hours before going dead. Is it the battery that needs to be replace? if yes how hard is it to change it and where do I get this battery? Thanks

Thanks for asking your question, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'll be glad to assist you.

The issue you are facing is indeed a deleting battery problem. This happens over time and from all the charges the battery takes.

Can you tell me which 1st gen you have? Is it a iPod Touch?

I know which one you have now. Wasn't sure if you were at first referring to 1st Gen iTouch or original iPod.

The battery replacement is actually very easy compared to some of the newer iPods. You can use the link I have provided to purchase the battery which it the entire kit. Comes with battery, tools and video on how to change.
