Picture of Heres the plan

here we have another dead mp3 player..

the problem ; dead battery , it wont hold a charge for more than a few hours.
its also scruffy looking  and a  hideous orange color under the aluminum tape i applied to it last year.
its a camnex ae900 2GB , mp3 /video player
with camera and a truly excellent ebook reader {thats how i wore out the battery]

what i intend to do is replace the battery and reskin it with something better.
it is too usefull to just dump and buy a new unit

Why didn't you use this case on the other player? It looks in good condition.

heh heh good question it did occurr to me to do that but i wanted to try the ducktape cover and the blue case was to nice to mess up.
yet i am going to reuse that case when i add a removable canon camera battery to the player the transplanted battery is nearly dead again.... next instructable.

I had an mp3 player almost exactly like that one, except mine could play NES games. My friends sister ended up tearing off the back of it. Why, I don't know
