My iphone had been showing signs of battery problems discharging very quickly and then I tried charging the phone over night but it just stayed at 1% and never booted up again. I had to try to fix it because I just could not except that I was going to lose all of my data. My first thought was to take it to the apple store to replace the battery and that's what I did I killed 3 hours there only to have some guy come back and tell me that it was not the battery but the mother board or the socket he wanted to give me a replacement phone for $260 dollars. I told him no and started looking on the internet were I found ifixit.
Regarding the repair for the most part it was strait forward but opening up the phone was a little difficult the green plastic tool to separate the case did not work for me I needed something thinner I used a pocket knife that worked much better. Once the battery was installed the phone work great very happy it only took about 10:00 Min.
If any one has a iphon5 and the battery go's get this Kit it really works and you wont regretted
