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 ( {Capacity or Year} ), then you have the Thin version.

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