iPod Nano 1st Generation Battery Replacement.

Battery not lasting long? Swap it out (requires soldering).

Passo 1 Battery  ¶ 

Peel the orange kapton tape covering the battery leads.

Passo 1 Battery  ¶ 

  • Peel the orange kapton tape covering the battery leads.

Passo 2  ¶ 

The next few steps require a soldering iron. The ends of the battery leads are fed through small holes in the logic board and held in place by a small amount of solder.

Passo 2  ¶ 

  • The next few steps require a soldering iron.

  • The ends of the battery leads are fed through small holes in the logic board and held in place by a small amount of solder.

  • Begin by heating the exposed end of the white battery lead with the tip of a soldering iron while simultaneously pulling the lead away from the connection, using tweezers to grasp the lead by the insulation.

  • De-solder the remaining leads, following the procedure illustrated above.

  • Due to the delicate nature of electronic components, it is imperative to limit the amount of heat transferred from the soldering iron to the logic board. An easy way to accomplish this is to pull on the battery lead with light, continuous tension, while the soldering iron heats up the connection. In order to avoid damage, lift the solder tip off the connection as soon as the solder melts and the lead slides out.

Passo 3  ¶ 

If present, remove the small piece of shrink tube protecting the new battery's positive lead.

  • If present, remove the small piece of shrink tube protecting the new battery's positive lead.

Passo 4  ¶ 

To aid in soldering the new battery, be sure the solder pad holes are clear of solder. This way, you can insert the new battery leads and solder them in place. To open the solder holes, open a safety pin and push it against the solder blocking the hole. At the same time, heat the same solder pad from the other side of the logic board. Opening the holes completely will require repeating this procedure several times from alternating sides of the logic board.

Passo 4  ¶ 

  • To aid in soldering the new battery, be sure the solder pad holes are clear of solder. This way, you can insert the new battery leads and solder them in place.

  • To open the solder holes, open a safety pin and push it against the solder blocking the hole. At the same time, heat the same solder pad from the other side of the logic board. Opening the holes completely will require repeating this procedure several times from alternating sides of the logic board.

  • These holes are extremely small, so the safety pin will probably be too large to pass all the way through. Do not insert the entire pin through the hole -- only the tip of the pin.

  • You can also try entering the tip of the pin on the other side of the board to open the solder pad hole.

Passo 5  ¶ 

Place the logic board flat on a table with the gold ground contacts (shown in orange) facing up.

Passo 5  ¶ 

  • Place the logic board flat on a table with the gold ground contacts (shown in orange) facing up.

  • Using a pair of tweezers, insert the stripped ends of the battery leads into their respective holes.

  • Insert the black lead into the hole nearest the hold switch (shown in red).

  • Insert the red lead into the center hole.

  • Insert the white lead into the hole furthest from the hold switch.

  • To keep the leads in place, it may be helpful to first bend them 90 degrees, and then insert them into the holes.

  • To keep the leads in place, it may be helpful to first bend the battery leads into their final shape, then insert the stripped ends into the holes.

Passo 6  ¶ 

Flip the logic board and battery over so the bare ends of the battery leads are facing up.

Passo 6  ¶ 

  • Flip the logic board and battery over so the bare ends of the battery leads are facing up.

Passo 7  ¶ 

In this step, you will solder the battery leads to the solder pads on the logic board. Excess heat transferred to the logic board while soldering may result in electronic component damage. As a rule of thumb, hold the tip of the soldering iron against the joint just long enough to melt the solder, then quickly remove it.

  • In this step, you will solder the battery leads to the solder pads on the logic board.

  • Excess heat transferred to the logic board while soldering may result in electronic component damage. As a rule of thumb, hold the tip of the soldering iron against the joint just long enough to melt the solder, then quickly remove it.

  • Solder the connection by momentarily placing the tip of the soldering iron against the connection, melting solder into the connection, and quickly removing both the solder and the tip of the soldering iron from the connection. The solder should flow around the new battery lead, solidly connecting it to the pad on the logic board.

  • Solder the other two battery leads in the same fashion, taking care not to bridge any of the connections together.

Passo 8  ¶ 

Rotate the battery toward the logic board and place it flat in its void, bending the cables as necessary.
