WILMINGTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 16, 2007 -- Blue Raven Technology (www.blueraven.com), a leading provider of iPod audio and video personal electronics products, today announced that they have a full line of iPod replacement battery kits for the 1st through 4th generation iPod, Video iPod and iPod Mini, available immediately. The batteries come with detailed instructions and all the tools necessary to make changing the batteries at home a snap. In addition, Blue Raven is the first manufacturer to offer online help, including an instructional video, to ensure consumers can easily change their own batteries.

Consumers can quickly and easily change their own batteries, saving significant time and money.
