Why is my iPhone frying all my batteries?

On January my original Apple battery died. I then orderer one from ebay, lasted two months, then died. Repeated, lasted one month. Bought a new one from iFixit, lasted 4 months, then died.

All batteries would die the same way: A day the phone would do a random reboot showing apple logo, then next days will be doing this more and more often until phone can only be used while charging. Then, someday, phone doesn´t even work charging it. I can´t even enter on recovery mode. Totally dead. But when I change the battery to a new one, everything works fine again.

So in other words, my phone keeps slowly frying any battery I put on it. My question is, why is this happening? What´s damaging these batteries? I use only original lighting cable for charging, and would charge phone directly to the wall, sometimes to my PC and seldom to a power bank.


Thanks in advance.

I believe you are suffering from a failing / failed U2 Tristar IC Chip which would require Micro Soldering to repair. Search Google for U2 Tristar repair and symptoms and see if you are experiencing this. Be sure to only use genuine apple chargers and lightning cables and not to use a standard USB cigarette charger in your car.... this is the main reason for the fail.

Hope this helps, Best of luck!
