My Problem

My old battery can't charge well

My Fix

It's an easy repairment, especially with guidance from ifixit site. It's only take around 10 minutes.

My Advice

Thank for the ifixit team.

My Problem

My phone wouldn't hold a charge. It would go from 100% battery life to zero charge. I took the case off and saw the back cover was bulging open on the corner opposite the camera lens.

My Fix

My boyfriend watched the Ifixit video on replacing the battery.

We ordered the replacement kit the video recommended. We ordered it on Monday morning and received it in the mail Saturday (shipped from CA to OH). He replaced the battery according to the video and my IPhone is working good as new, no more bulging case. The process took less than 30 minutes.

My Advice

Saved a lot of money by following the Ifixit video. Didn't realize how easy it could be. Before ordering replacement battery we called the Verizon store and was told they didn't sell or replace batteries. I could buy a new IPhone and if mine was in good shape (iPhone 4), they might give me $18. My phone is in excellent shape and I will keep it, thank you!

My Problem

My wife's iPhone 4 battery was running down very quickly.

My Fix

Smoothly, with two exceptions: 1. A very small part fell off the phone when I removed the two screws holding the old battery connector in place. iFixit's video didn't emphasize this very much; the woman on it only mentioned the 'antenna connector' briefly in passing. I couldn't tell for sure where the part went, or if it was important.

2. I now realize the original iPhone 4 battery connector had 1 tiny screw holding it in place. The replacement battery has what look like 2 holes for screws. This is why I removed the 2 screws on the phone...one of them held the antenna connector, which fell off.

I managed to figure out where it appeared the antenna connector was supposed to attach, and screwed everything down. Fortunately my wife's phone seems to be working fine, so everything turned out well.

The whole process took about 45 minutes or so, with a bit of time being used to deal with the antenna connector issue.

My Advice

I'd suggest that iFixit point out that the configuration of the battery connector attachment plate differs from the Apple OEM battery (2 screw holes vs 1 for OEM). It might also be a good idea to mention the antenna connector and what function it serves.

Unfortunately, my wife needed her phone back in service ASAP, so I was unable to take photos to illustrate the issue.

My Problem

Battery running down after 4 years of use on my iPhone 4. Estimate to get a new battery installed was between $50 and $60 at local repair stores. I thought that was pretty good until I saw the price for a new battery on IFIXIT and how easy it appeared to install it from watching the instructional video. Plus micro tools included free of charge to do the task.

My Fix

Very easy if you have a modicum of patience and are careful as the screws are very tiny. I used a plastic case about 3 inched deep and about 14 inches long to do the job in and avoid loosing a screws. All was as described in the video with exception of the antenna strip. I have no ideas where that was in my Sprint phone.

My Advice

I did the job for half the price of taking it to a store and having someone else install the battery. But you do have to have patience and a steady hand. I'm sort of use to working with small devices so it was not at all a problem for me. Newly installed battery is doing much better than old one and I'm very happy with the results. Sorry I was not able to take a photo. My phone camera was well sort of out of commission.

My Problem

My wife's iPhone 4 battery was not holding a charge for very long. There were times when she would just let it stay plugged in and use it that way.

My Fix

After watching the ifixit video on how to replace the battery and using the tools provided by ifixit, the repair was relatively easy. I was a little concerned about the grounding clip, but with a little patience, that worked out also. I replaced the two original Apple pentalobe screws with the two Phillips screws that came in your Liberation kit. The entire process took about ten minutes.

My Advice

I did watch the ifixit video a couple of times and read the battery replacement text. I also watched and read this: http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/ip...

This video helped a little bit more with how to handle the grounding clip and how to avoid some potential problems. Check it out.

My Problem

My Battery is drop

My Fix

just open the screw and replace the battery within 5-10minutes

My Advice

Just follow video instruction, all would be fine

My Problem

Well worth 24.00.to send back would have cost $$$$10-15$$$ well worth a new battery and tools.

THANK YOU IFIXIT.COM

My Fix

Simple with the the help of you're youtube video.

My Advice

If it don't work after you install the battery wait a few hrs. of charging

My Problem

Charge only lasted an hour on old battery.

My Fix

iFixit provided the exact part and tools required, including "Liberation Kit." Took five minutes. No problems. Battery lasts all day now.

My Advice

iFixit provided the correct battery. Another source provided wrong battery. Also, the repair guide (and those for other devices) was simple and easy to follow. I'm sold on iFixit.

My Problem

Battery wont hold charge

My Fix

Watched your instructional youtube video twice. Took less than 10 minutes to replace the battery. It's working great now.

My Advice

If you have never opened an iPhone like myself, do watch the video and follow all steps, especially about removing the old battery, mine was glued onto the board.

My Problem

My friend had this iphone 4 for 3.5 years and the original battery had really worn out, but getting a new iphone just coz the batery ran out didn't make any sense. So we started hunting for a battery that is of the same quality as the one that comes from Apple. From Apple Store it costs about $86 including taxes for a battery replacement and that didn't make sense. Initially I ordered a cheap battery from Amazon for $7. One for my 4S and another for my friend's iphone 4. While trying to connect the amazon battery to my 4S, the connector plate came off. That taught me a lesson - go for a replacement battery from someone renowned such as ifixit and avoid cheap Amazon sellers' batteries. You don't want an exploding phone by going for a cheap battery.

My Fix

I had watched the Youtube video from ifixit on iphone 4 battery replacement and the repair took hardly 8 minutes. Ground yourself to get rid of static electricity from your body. The tools given by ifixit were excellent for the job. 1) Open the screws 2) Slide the backplate and remove the case 3) Remove the battery screw and pry the connector carefully out with the plastic pry tool 4) Use spudger and pry up the battery 5) Connect the new battery and repeat the steps in reverse and Voila. It's that simple. Watch the video. That's all there is to it.

My Advice

1) I am giving this review after using the new battery for 4 months because the repair alone won't do it for me. I was skeptical if the battery would perform like the Apple originals. Guess what? Yes they do. I replaced the battery during 2014 Thanksgiving and now it's midway through March '15 and the battery performs really awesome. Gives a whole day with moderate to slightly heavy usage. Just go for it.

2) Be careful about the grounding plate. Ensure this does not slide off from where you screw the connector back up

3) Put your phone to flight mode and back if the phone has difficulty finding a network once it starts back.

Good Luck!!!
