iPhone 5 Battery Replacement. Purchased Genuine and wouldnt charge!


Hi Guys, So recently i purchased a Genuine iPhone 5 battery in an attempt to replace my dying one!

I fitted the battery and the phone booted no problem! Only issue is, the battery wouldnt charge, everything was in there snugly and fitted correctly. I then put my old battery in there and that works fine (Apart from issues with holding charge which is unrelated)

Ive replaced plenty of these before but never come across this problem.

Can anyone suggest why this would happen?

I know that with the 3GS, specific batteries had to be ordered with the correct model?

Is this the same case as the iPhone 5 or have i just got a dud?
