5.0 out of 5 stars 15 hours play time + 31 Mar 2009
Verified Purchase
It's a little tricky getting the small silver screw cover off the back of the player, and you will find that the original battery is stuck down to prevent it moving around. Save part of this sticky film to secure the new one. Otherwise, it's easy peasy. So far I've had 15 hours play time before recharge, and it may give more because I've been updating playlists and deleted some stuff. This is a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars My Sony lives again!!!! 2 July 2009
After several years of non-stop use and goodness knows how many thousands of charging cycles, my NW-A3000 finally gave up the ghost. Knowing the incredible expense of sending things back to makers for things like a new battery, I was very pleased to find this replacement at a very, very reasonable price. I had resigned myself to buying a new machine, but I didn't have to.

Once it arrived, I set to work with a penknife and tweezers (not state of the art equipment but all I had) and I was very grateful to the previous reviewer for his tips. I shall add my own. Sony certainly stuck the original down tight, and it takes a bit of prying off (that's where the penknife came in; any round-ended knife from the cutlery drawer would do equally as well). Don't worry about force, the Sony is built like a tank. Take care with the connecting wires though, they are very thin and the actual connector is tiny. Once lined up though, the tiny plug clicks into the socket and the back can be replaced.

Once charged, my Sony was as good as new and the replacement battery seems capable of at least 10 hours non-stop and maybe much more, because I haven't gone longer without recharging.

5.0 out of 5 stars thanks for the help 8 Jan 2010

I'd just like to say the other reviews for the battery were so helpful. I'd downloaded the user manual a while ago but I would never have known about how difficult the old battery is to remove from the case had you not said. I probably would have given up, my old battery was really stuck! I would also add that by unscrewing the four tiny screws on each corner of the battery you can remove the whole plate that just the batery sits in which made it even easier to wrench the battery out.
Great battery, charged fine and player as good as when I first got it!

5.0 out of 5 stars new battery for nwa 3000 21 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase
My sony nwa 3000 was forever running out of power and needed perpetual charging to get any kind of use out of it. Having googled how easy it was to buy and fit a new battery,i bought a replacement from amazon.Having located the all important screw to remove the back(this was under the badge on the back of the player)i was able to lever the battery out with a blunt knife.I then unplugged it from the small white socket and removed it,attached masking tape to the back metal plate,glued the new battery into place and reconnected the battery to the small white plug.It has been wonderful since replacing it and i now only charge it once a week.What would of been over 60 from sony to fix it was sorted for under 6.I would highly reccomend this product and company

5.0 out of 5 stars NWA3000 replacement battery 22 Feb 2011
By Mo
Perfect for the job - has extended the life of my walkman, and saved me from an unnecessary upgrade - well, for the time being anyway. Am getting about 8 hrs or so from a charge. Arrived promptly after placing my order. It is fiddly to change, but that's Sony's fault for not making it that easy. Plently of googling later and I got reasonable instructions about getting the unit apart - remember, dont force anything there will be a reason why you can't get something apart. Bottom line is, the Walkman logo on the back or the unit needs to be removed to reveal a screw. Once this has been removed the unit should come apart fairly easily.

5.0 out of 5 stars Battery for Sony NW A3000 27 Aug 2010
Excellent - better than the original battery. Easy, but a bit fiddle to install but followed advice from others who had bought. I didn't destroy my walkman in the process!

Installing the new battery can be tricky but saves you buying a new device.

Bought this battery as replacement and got my Walkman back to brand new status after 30mins of work with a screwdriver.

Item arrived within 2 days. Very Good!

5.0 out of 5 stars happy customer 8 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase
I had almost written off my SONY NW-A3000 MP3 player.
Apart from Sony no longer supporting the development of this product, it is more difficult to use than the Apple equivalent.
I had a battery life of less than 1 hour and the the operating buttons didn't operate as they should. The sound was poor. Oh dear, wrong choice!!
But; along comes the new battery and Presto! 10 hour battery life; the buttons now work; possibly the system voltage is now restored to what it should be. The sound quality has improved; amazing!! AND the battery was OK to fit; no major problems even though Sony obviously didn't intend this to be replaced (idiots....!). Happy customer.
