These days you can buy 3000 mah batteries for the ipods (as i have done) but the settings menu goes only to 1500 mah.   Relivant listing here http://www.ebay.com/itm/3000mAh-Battery-Upgrade-replacement-for-iPod-video30-classic-6th-80gb-120gb/322484390613?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649

I really doubt that the capacity of this battery is true. The following website may not be the most reliable source for battery information, but this is a nice read: https://www.iflash.xyz/3rd-party-extended-battery-guide/

Does anyone have long term operating experience with this battery or performed a battery benchmark test?

For the battery settings, the manual covers this quite nicely: https://download.rockbox.org/daily/manual/rockbox-ipodvideo/rockbox-buildch8.html#x10-1480008.5.1

fennectech:
How would i go about doing a battery benchmark   I am in the process of running a test with the built in app for it (its at 5 percent now) i can upload it   when its finished

cereal_killer:
Yes, I was thinking of the built-in plugin. Fully charge the battery, set playback to repeat and start playing a long playlist or a big file and leave the player alone until there comes no sound out of the headphones anymore. I always use -40 db and a single mp3 with the size of about 120 MB.

There was a report of a expanded battery on head-fi, which makes these batteries more suspicious: https://www.head-fi.org/f/threads/official-ipod-video-classic-5g-5-5g-6g-6-5g-7g-ssd-mod-thread.566780/page-605#post-13589773

Would be nice, if you could report your setup and the results.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/th9uk1229kik438/bin.zip?dl=0   Its an iPod 5g with an iflash quad and the battey i linked above   Playing mp3 files all 320kbps   display off  with headphones up at -16db

Total of 63 hours until it somehow shut down  but the battery was not dead   it was at 5 percnt so close enough.  Thats more battery life than anyone could possably make use of in a single sitting
