  • iPhone 5 Battery Replacement

    The new battery install went well and the instructions were perfect. Since the screws and other parts are so very small I worked on top of an old T-Shirt to keep dropped parts from bouncing out of site. I also printed the instructions and taped each screw and other piece remove to the page describing the removal. Removing the battery from the underlying tape was a nightmare since I couldn't get any pry leverage and didn't want to puncture the battery (yes, they do explode when punctured). I made the removal much easier by making a loop of waxed dental floss and working one end of the loop under the connector end of the battery. It was pulled up the battery about 1/2" and then lifted up on the battery with the floss loop until the tape released it's grip. From then on the repair was quick and easy.
