My iPhone 5 battery finally gave up! I use the iPhone as an iPod to play music in cars. This is the best $35 bucks I spent and pretty happy with the result...it's like owning a new iPhone 5.

My Problem

My old iPhone 5 battery on the phone my son was using would not hold a charge and was failing. It needed replacing and local shops wanted more to fix it than it was worth.

My Problem

Replaced IPhone 5 battery. Old one was no longer holding its charge.

My Fix

Really well. Instructions were great. I got stuck a long time on the removal of old battery. I heated my neck pillow and set phone on it as I pried gently in the 3 places. Eventually it let loose with a crack. Every other step . . .
