Location FL11 - Battery usage meter does not update.

The screen battery % usage does not update so can't tell how much charge is left in the battery. I can force an update by restarting the iphone.

From research I noticed by the battery connector are a few SMD components are missing. I think some are capacitors (not important to fault?) and suspect the inductor FL11 is missing too.

Can someone pinpoint the location FL11. I'm from UK and sourcing this component from US is very expensive due to postage. Would a solder bridge suffice?

I've tried to take a photo from different angles as the quality is not too good.

@spikey FL11 is a 120ohm 210mA inductor in a 01005 package. No solder bridge if you like your phone. Digikey in the UK has those right here

Thanks for the answer.

Sorry my photo wasn't too clear, is that the first pair of pads you're pointing to. I've took another photo and this is alot clearer. http://s1225.photobucket.com/user/Spikey...

Wow £12 postage from Digikey for such a small component, is cheaper anywhere else? Will a solder bridge seriously damage my iPhone? Because the area is so small I can't get a soldering bit in so was thinking of using conductive glue http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/0-3ML-Silver-C... Would this be OK?

Yes that is the first component, no it is not okay to use anything but the component. The 01005 package is the smallest one and will require micro soldering. As for the component, you could try Farnell or even places like alibaba as well as ebay
