My new battery from ifixit it's at a 57% life

I bought an iPhone 4S battery from ifixit a week ago, and the one that i receive was at 57% of its design capacity (900mah) and has only 1 cycle of charge.

Is it normal? Or it is a problem with my iPhone, i think it is a little bot strange. I check with coconut battery and iBackupbot.

I choose the iFixit ones, because I think it is a good place to buy my new battery.

Thanks for the support.

Hold on a second here. So when you put it in, it's it 57%? Will it how higher, when you charge it?

Really? No, no it doesn't stuck at 57% charge. If I put in in charge it goes to 100% like normal battery.

The thing is that the battery life, that is supposed to be at 100% and 1430 mah is in fact at 57% and 900 mah.

So it is like I bought half battery.

I have finish the first load cycle and after 2 hours sleep and 26 minutes active it is at 87% in save battery mode.

It is normal? I don't think so.

Thank for the answer!!


Ok, so, sounds like your battery is working just fine. If you have an issue with it, send it back to ifixit. They'll more than likely give you a new one, in exchange


Yeah, I have write to fixit, I suppose I will send it. I just want to know if the values where normal. I know it is working fine, I just think it is not acceptable for a new batery. Indeed these one is the third I test, and I buy ifixit because it is supposed to be better... I still be in the first loadcyle, 54% batery in save mode. 1h6 use, 10h44 sleep. It is less than the battery it is supposed to replace.

So my question is, it is normal ?


I don't know what you're saying. You get 1 hour 6? What's that mean?


Ok, i will try to explain it better. I want to say that in the first load cycle (charged from 0 to 100%) my battery was at 54% (charge) after I use it 1h06 (active) and 10h44 sleep. That values are indicated by my iPhone when I see it in menu: Battery from preferences of iOs. All the values where taked with battery save mode on. It means that i have a lot of things off. So my question is really simple, what are the standard values of use (in hours) of a battery in iOs9.2 with an iPhone 4s?

After two days of use, the battery life have augmented to 71% (i'm talking here of the battery health and not the battery charge) so i think, I must use it and wait. Thanks!
