Can't find any compatible battery

I've tried to order roughly 5 batteries now, ranging from different buyers and APNs, 616-0718, 0720, 0721, 0728, all of them do not even light up the screen as the old 616-0722 battery does (which has a low voltage, unable to boot, shows a please charge screen with lightning cable). I have tested with other charging ports as well. The problem is I cannot purchase another 0722, no matter where I try, ever after I spend 100$ on a specific eBay advert that claims to only have that APN.

All the other sellers are convinced there are other compatible batteries, but so far I have 2 phones with identical original batteries(0722) and both will not work with any others! This is becoming extremely frustrating! I tried ordering from iFixit themselves, I love this site, but they no longer ship to Canada. Please help.

If you are getting a low battery icon with the original battery that came with the phone and the lightning cable plug in won't go away even after trying multiple cables and charging ports, then stop wasting your time on battery replacements and get the U2 Tristar Charging IC replaced by someone that does micro soldering.

Your website shows no matches for the APN I need. If you have an answer to why the suggested compatible batteries are not working, please let me know. Otherwise, I do not need a solution from another merchant that has already failed

I suggest that one. You can get it new, used or grade B and it has a 1 year warranty.

Its stupid that iFixit wont ship to canada anymore.

Your link shows a photo of the incorrect APN. If you have an answer to why the suggested compatible batteries are not working, please let me know. Otherwise, I do not need a solution from another merchant that has already failed.

Just get a new 5s. They are around $200

Sure, split the difference with me and I'll gladly do just that. Only it's 270$ CAD and the battery only costs 20$. So send me 250$ and I'll gladly follow your advice.

Well you said you spend $100 already on a battery. So there is more than half, along with the 4 or 5 other batteries you got. That equals the $200 if you return them all.
