My Problem

My iPhone 5 was beginning to need multiple charges to get through the day - and I am not one to have my phone in hand constantly. I did some traveling, and the fear of getting lost in a strange city with a dead phone was enough to make me think it was time for a new battery.

My Problem

battery would die from 100% to completely off with 2 minute video without light on!

My Fix

Super easy and affordable kit and the video suppor . . .
