I bought the kit from iFixit in Europe and replaced the battery successfully in around 30 minutes BUT you do need to read all these comments and take care... Two tricky things I found were:
1. lifting the screen wouldn't work until I slip a razor blade slightly between the screen and case in the headphone area this helps release the clip and then the plastic tool can be easily inserted around to ease the clips open so you don't need to use much upwards force..
2. the battery was REALLY well stuck so I gently warmed the whole phone in a food dehydrator to around 50 C for 20 minutes and then the glue released easily using the plastic tab...
I think it's these two stages that done wrong or with too much force cause all the problems in the comments about!
Thanks for a cheap way to keep my phone going - 25% of the costs Apple would have charged...
