The re-chargeable battery had run out of re-charges. I always took my daily 1-hour walks supported by my fast-paced music to keep the old feet moving with the beat. Then recently, the music would suddenly stop, and even though the battery had just been fully charged, the mini pooped out in the middle of my walk. The Apple Store referred me to ifixit.
The repair went excellent! Your pictures are exceptionally clear, as well as the instructions that go with it. The repair went quickly, easily, and I can now walk again.
(I can't say that for another product I recently purchased from my local pet store - an electric litter box. Their instructions and photos were so bad, it took me several days to put together what should have been a 1/2 hour project). My cat was disappointed, too!
Hooray for ifixit!
No advice needed. I'm just glad I found out about you!
Sorry, I didn't take any photos - the repair went so fast, I didn't stop to take any. Your photos are excellent - you don't need mine. But my one-eyed cat Dolly is happy now, too!
