How to Change an iPod Shuffle Battery


The iPod shuffle is a small digital music player made by Apple. When you buy an iPod shuffle, you have a one-year warranty that extends to cover the battery. You can increase your coverage to two years or pay Apple a fee to replace the iPod shuffle battery without a warranty. You can also just read on and learn how to do the battery replacement yourself.

  • Set your iPod shuffle to "hold" mode and remove the top of the player from the back piece. Slice gently along the edge of the opening between the two sections with a sharp tool and twist slightly to open.

  • Scrape your tool around the edges of your iPod shuffle to remove any remaining glue from the case. Lift the top of your iPod shuffle off of its base and be careful not to cut the internal wires.

  • Pry the "power" button off and remove the insides of the iPod shuffle from the player. Ensure that the "play" button is facing up.

  • Take off the foil cover over the battery. Remove the battery and replace it with a new one. Solder the battery connector onto the motherboard after you have the new battery in place.

  • Put the insides back into the base of the iPod shuffle and replace the top section. Seal it closed with a few drops of glue around the edges.

Tips & Warnings

  • The USB contact is the part of your iPod shuffle that connects to your computer and enables it to download information.
