I too ordered the battery from newmp3technology.com and managed to replace the battery using the instructions from this thread (and the links provided) having no prior experience in such matters. Thanks to all the providers! Now if only there was a way to fix / replace the buttons ...

Ditto here. Got the battery from newmp3technology and replaced it with little soldering experience. Got a little worried when it wouldn't power up right away, but it's just because the new battery was completely dead. I'm used to new batteries having a little charge. But after leaving it on the charger for a while, it powered up, and now it's completely charged.

Thanks for the great instructions here and linked from here!

I just brought my 2,5 year old Archos 605 160gb back to the store for a battery replacement. I always take a service contract/extra insurance when I buy a new Archos. I will get it back in 3 or six weeks. But thats not a problem because I don't use it anymore.

I was able to change the battery fairly easily with encouragement from swec. I did have a problem with the button connection strip coming undone and the internal sound connections. But opening up the unit again I was able to figure out these issues. In this process a few of the black screws got stripped and I had to drill them out. I recommend having a sharp correct size phillips. I also found a pair of tweezers and a magnifying glass helpful.

Does the 20GB WiFi version take the same battery ?

Hi guys quick question.
If the battery on the archos (archos wifi 160gig) will no longer hold a charge, would the unit still work if plugged in??
I get the charging light while the unit is plugged in, but it will not turn on.

Any help is appreciated. Thank you!! :p

If the battery is truly the issue, yes. :)
