Mijn probleem

The battery life on my iPhone 4 was getting bad....dying in 4 hours under use, and 8-12 if just on standby.

Mijn oplossing

To replace the battery was pretty darned simple...except the pentalobe screws are darned hard to see. I couldn't get them back in. Fortunately, I bought the "liberation kit" which gave me standard phillips head screws which went back in with minimal fuss.

Mijn advies

The only hard part was removing the battery from the main board --- the connector is a little "odd" -- but it came out and went back on with minimal fuss --- anyone with a reasonable mechanical aptitude will have no problem with this part. Just don't force anything, and go by feel. You'll be fine.

I was also surprised at how much force it took to remove the battery itself. You aren't pulling on a tab on the batter, theres a tab on the phone that acts as a lever. Just pull...with confidence. That battery will remove with some force.

Advise: Good lighting, good magnification are important. Lay down a black work surface if you have it. It will make finding screws easier.

Time: From beginning to end, it took maybe 15 minutes including looking for my old stand by jewelers screwdrivers and magnifying glass.
