Louis Rossmann, the guy in the video, is fighting on our side for "Right to Repair" legislation. Apple and just about every other manufacturer out there has been eroding the consumer's rights to repair damaged and defective-by-design products through patent, IP and copyright controls. Louis and many others in the repair world are being squeezed out of existence just so the manufacturers can sell you replacements instead of repairs by pricing repair services at absurd amounts where replacement is the better option. Go watch some of his videos on this topic and get a first hand feel of the problem as seen by an independent repair shop owner. He seems pretty genuine and passionate about the subject so hopefully you won't be disappointed.

This guys awesome. I think he started to gain traction once he called Linus cuck tips out on their shitty repair technique.

I've never heard of this, could you give me the TL;DR of what happened? I thought Linus Tech Tips was only about making (shitty) ads for computer hardware?

You deserve to get your wallet gouged if you go out and buy Apple shit.

Believe it ....

Do most jobs yourself and you can save money.

The best thing to do is push for 100% of things you have bought and the right to repair what you have bought!

Repairing on your own what you already have will be a very rare ability in the near future. The school system is setting the next generations to be total wage slaves. They dont endorse trade schools at all. Want everyone to go to brainwashing Uni's so we all end up like antifa bitch. Must teach our kids better

"the next generation." LOL the delusion is real. They have been pushing the college and working a shit job for generations.

Yep! So true.

I'm for a tech, military and uni split actually. I'm anti-war but can see the value of being trained in the military as worth while.

Fucking it up is part of the learning process though. What I do is I buy used stuff at the e-recycle to tinker with before I try to fix my toys.

If it's broke, you can't fuck it up. Once something gets to the, "Either I toss it or I resurrect it" stage, what have you got to lose?

You don't need to do anything beyond plug in different parts. Get an adapter from here, order a replacement battery and off you go.

The replacement battery should come with a spudger to open it up.

The only thing that needs to be done is to simply take it slow and observe what's happening.
There are plenty of guides online, lots of great videos too.

I have 3 classic ipods set aside just this task.

This is true of most authorized repair shops.

Have a heirloom Rolex watch and took it into an ARS to have the battery replaced and was told they would have to send it off the Switzerland to have the work done.

There was only one model of Rolex, the Oysterquartz, which had a battery from 1970 to 2001. The rest don't have batteries. That's kind of their "thing".
