replacement battery discharge faster than original


my original battery discharge very fast so I decided to change it by a remplacement kit fom ifixit yesterday.

today this battery discharged faster than the original ! do I have to do some charge/discharge cycles to let the battery calibrate itself or does I have another problem ?

also, I eared about the charging method : fast charge will goes to faster discharge and so on with slow charge (with usb for example). what do you think about this ?

thanks guys

How long are you considering a fast discharge and what are you doing with the phone? watching video ,playing games , cruising the web. how quick does it discharge if its only on standby and not used for anything else


Another thought did you remove the insulation tape from the phone if there's not tape on thew metal case backing against the batery it could be shorting itself out


10% loss in one night, 3% in 15 min where I just lunched spotify to synchronize a playlist locally (open synchronize, close) and I use regulary facebook tweetbot to check news so yes videos some time, iMessage etc, normal utilization i think

I lost 2% writing this email through chrome for example so since I'm awake (30 min) I lost 15% of battery


Some fresh stats

Ios9 upgrade last night by backup / restore, full charge (usb) then go to bed

10% loss when awake

Utilization last 9 hours :

Facebook : 1 mn on screen, 6h backgroud - 50%

Chrome : 14 on screen - 26%

Spotify : 1 mn - 2 min - 17%

Maybe there is a bug : 5h57 utilisation - 6h58 locked ("veille" in french, I don't remeber how to translate) so 1h of utilisation since last full charge


81% left now

With original battery i got 10% left at the end of the day, yesterday shutdown 1h before leaving work
