Battery capacity terrible after repair - stuck at 100 mAh
I did a bit of an overhaul on my iPhone 5s, replacing the lighting adapter and accompaniment, then a few days later replacing the front facing camera/prix sensor cable and battery.
Upon startup after the second set of replacement parts the phone seemed to work fine, but discharged amazingly quickly. I used Battery Life app to check the capacity and it was showing 100 mAh where it should have been 1550.
Ok I thought, must be defective, I'll put the old one back in for now. I swap them back and lo and behold, the old battery is also showing 100 mAh and discharging super quick.
So: coincidence? Did I cause a short somewhere? Software issue? Is it worth trying another battery replacement or is it just time to retire the phone and upgrade.
Is this a good question?
