iPhone battery not charging after DIY battery replacement. Why?
I recently had some issues with my jailbroken iphone 5 where the battery just wouldn't last. The percentage would read 40% and just die. It eventually got to the point that the phone would die at 100%. A fully charged battery but still turn off after 5 minutes of use.
Yesterday i changed the battery myself using an ifixit guide and success was had!
Or so i thought! The phone turned on but only had 12% battery. No big deal so i plugged it in to the computer. At this point the phone restarted itself and then showed 9% battery. I left it plugged in for awhile and noticed that the battery still showed a charge of 9%. I rebooted it and it then showed a 6% charge. I left it plugged in over night and it still only shows a 6% charge.
When plugged in, the phone claims it is charging and does chime at initial plug in. Could i have done something wrong when connecting the new battery? Has anyone else experienced this before? Please help!
P.S. warranty is obviously void now and my update isnt due till november. :/
UPDATE: Apple Store rejected the phone (like I knew they would). Took it to a iPhone repair kiosk at my local mall and they put a new battery into it and it was fine. I did everything correctly in my fix but the replacement battery I received in the mail was faulty. Thanks for your answers everyone!
Is this a good question?
