My IPhone was not holding a charge for more than 2 hrs.
So I started looking into replacing the battery. When I saw how much Apple charges for a battery replacement. I looked elsewhere to smaller cell phone repair stores and their prices seemed alittle high too.So I looked online to see what the process was like to change the battery myself. It seemed very straight forward and easy. So I order'd a replacement kit that included the battery and tools to replace the battery from some random vendor online. When it arrived I replaced the battery like the video instructed everything went smooth until I put the phone on. The phone was acting wacky and the battery didn't seem good. When the phone was plugged I to the charger the battery power would decrease rather than charge. When I contacted the vendor they made excuses saying I probably didn't install it correctly so I wound up having to having to look elsewhere for a new battery.
When I found Ifixit. I saw alot of positive reviews. And found it to be a more reputiable business.
So I was able to order the correct battery.
The battery arrived just in time because I had tro put my old battery back in the phone which resulted in constant crashes and even less battery life than before. The shipment was very fast. It arrived in 2 days. So when I arrived home from work that day I immediately watched the install video again and installed the battery. I was very anxious to put the new battery in so I forgot to take pics. Anyway the install went smooth and fast and my iPhone was like new again.And I have not experienced any problems since.
Thx Ifixit team.
Order from a established reputiable place like Ifixit.
I looked on Amazon for iPhone battery's and seen some for as low as $1.05 and a bunch of negative feedback from angry customers complaining the battery didn't work.
As the old saying goes you get what you pay for.
From now on my future tech purchases for parts will be from Ifixit. They stand by there product and offer a refund if there is a problem.something you won't receive from a random vendor with prices that are too good to be true.
