I had tried and tried to charge my 1st generation Shuffle Ipod and it was looking dead like the battery had run its lifecycle. I sent for the replacement battery and Spudger. Just as I was about to break into the ipod with the new parts at hand but I decided to give it one last try at charging it. Lo and behold the darn thing charged up just as it did when new. Keeping the parts for the day it decides to go south. Thank you. JD Colon
No repair needed yet.
Make sure our device is really dead before you order the parts.
