Poor quality replacement battery: ribbon cable badly shaped
Hey - I'd love to know if the ribbon cable for my iFixit battery is the norm or if mine isn't up to the usual standards?
The cable on the original apple part is exactly along the side of the battery body,
it has a little fold at the side and it allows the connector at the end to perfectly align up with the socket on the logic board.
The part from iFixIt sticks up from the body of the battery,
It doesn't have the little fold on the ribbon cable
And when I connect it to the logic board the cable sticks up several MM into the air which I guess would probably put too much pressure on the back of the display if closed.
Did I just get a badly made part that shouldn't have passed quality control?
I've included photos of the ifixit battery from the front and the side where you can see the cable sticking up into the air.
I don't think I could easily reshape to stay at the side or flatten it down on top
Is this a good question?
