iPod Classic 3G Battery (2003 device)

iFixit 3.7v 850mAh battery replacement states that it provides 30% more power, however, the capacity of the original battery is quoted as 1200mAh on many sites. So the replacement battery would be 30% less capacity. Which is correct?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hello Mark,

That’s a good question. I’ll be looking into it. Can you let me know more about your device so I know exactly what I’m researching? Just to double check, are you looking at the iPod 3rd Generation (3G) or the iPod Classic?

Hi Mark,

I did some reading around different places about the compatible battery for that iPod battery (616-0159) and the best answer I can come up with is that some of the sources might be less accurate. The highest battery size I’m finding online, from trustworthy sellers, is 850 mAh. On Newegg, for example.
I can tell you that all of the products we sell are screened for quality and we offer a 1 year limited warranty on our batteries.

I hope this helps and let me know if I can answer any other questions!

Doesn’t really answer my question. Wanted to know the original capacity of the original battery for a 3rd Gen iPod as I believe the 30% increased capacity is incorrect. My experience would suggest a 30% decrease in capicity based on an original fitted battery of 1200mAh.

Hi Mark, I migrated your question over to our Answers forum because I think you're more likely to get the answer you're looking for over here. Meta is more for questions about iFixit specific stuff, but I now understand that you're looking for the specifics for the original battery installed in the 3rd Gen iPod. I've spend a good deal of time looking around the internet for a reliable source but everything I'm finding is listing the battery life in hours rather than in mAh. Hopefully some of our members who are big into Apple products can answer this question for you.
