The battery of my iphone 5 did not hold charge.
I watched the "How to replace iphone 5 battery video" a couple of time before I actually did the job. However, I did not fillow all the steps as instructed on the Video. It took me less than 5 minutes to pry open the front panel. But I did not remove it as instructed on the Video, because it could stand still at about 90 degree, so it would not in the way for me to pry out the battery. The replacement battery had a piece of clear plastic sheet wrapped around it. I did not know if I should remove it or not. But considering that it might cause the battery being overheat, I peeled it off anyway. Hopefully I made the right decision. The two magnetic tip screw drivers worked perfectly. I have no problem to remove and install those tiny screws. All together it took me about 25 minutes to complete the replacement job.
I suggest that IFIXIT needs to clearify if the clear plastic sheet wrapped around the battery should be removed or not.
Another thing I want to mention. It took eight days for me to receive the package. The package was fist shipped to USPS' Honalulu facilities, then back to US Continent. I thind IFIXIT should bring this situation to USPS' attention. Thank you.
