Replacement battery expected life

What is the expected life of an iFixIt replacement iPhone 5 battery?

I purchased one back in Feb 2015 (9 months ago), made an immediate positive difference. Now it lasts about 30 minutes before the phone shuts off.

Is this normal?

Battery life expectancy is rated by number of charge/discharge cycles. The more you use the iPhone the shorter the batter life. For most users your experience would be an abnormally short battery life. Anyways, it seems to be time for a new battery.
