iPod Classic Battery: Thick or Thin?

Unfortunately, there is no distinction in model number between Thick and Thin model iPod Classics. To distinguish between them without opening up your device:

  1. Locate the Serial # etched on the rear panel of the iPod.
  2. Go to Apple's Service and Support Coverage Tool and enter your Serial # and Captcha.
  3. Look at the text under the picture.
    1. If it reads iPod Classic, then you have the Thick version.
    2. If it reads iPod Classic (Late 2009), then you have the Thin version.

In the below example, the iPod Classic is a Thick model.
