Battery Replacement for iPhone 3GS from my daughter (a teenager)
20 - 30 minuten
My daughter has inherited my old 3GS. The good old piece already has a not bad time on the hump.
Of course the battery was quickly at the end - with the excessive usage (music, clips etc.). At the end, she could use it only with AC adapter.
So what to do?
I have already made good experiences in the past with the guides and the parts from iFixti.
As first try - I have replaced the fan from the MacBook Core Duo from my daughter. The success was great and the joy as well.
The second attempt was a little more difficult. The replacement of the inverter cabel by the Mac from my wife. Also the same model - MacBook Core Duo. She had problems with the backlight. The difficulty was to find out what does not work:
- the inverter?
- the inverter cabel?
- or the display data cable?
It was the inverter cabel. Identified after intensive researchs on different forums.
This repair was a lot more difficult, but also successful - thanks the step by step instructions by iFixit.
Boosted by this accomplishments I felt the battery change as small challenge.
And in fact - the necessary material was from iFixit quickly and rapidly supplied. Within a few days it was in our mailbox.
And then the same game like the first times - step by step. But yeah do not use abbreviations! And the the success was certainly.
Only the removal of the glued battery pack was unexpectedly difficult. So - be careful here.
Now has my doughter her iPhone back with a not bad battery performance. And she finds she has the best dad on the world.
So be brave, it's worth it.
