My Problem

Replaced the battery on my iPhone after the previous replacement battery (changed in 2013) was only good for some hours anymore. i did have a little bit of experiance already opening up my iPhone so it wasn't all that difficult.

My Fix

Sublime

My Advice

iFixit is the perfect store to get more out of your electronics.

My Problem

The battery began losing power quickly and started acting funny, going from showing 40% to dead, then showing back at 40% when plugged in to charger.

My Fix

I ordered the kit with the tools, then followed the pictures and the video. No problems or issues, and the unit is now functioning as it should. Instead of having to put on charger after about 4-5 hours, I now go 2 days.

My Advice

For device repairs, check Ifixit.com first.

My Problem

The battery on my phone basically turned into a grumpy old man that hates life. All it wanted to do was sit at home and do nothing but be on his charger. When he did go out, he would only be out for maybe two hours before he go tired and went to sleep.

My Fix

The repair was pretty straight forward. It was nice to have the tools. Getting the original battery off was a little difficult due to the adhesive. Had a wee bit of trouble trying to figure out how the little grounding plate was supposed to be positioned. But overall the repair was pretty easy peasy. I have noticed that my phone will now randomly shut itself off when I still have about 35% battery life. It will say it needs to be charged, and when I put it on to charge it immediately starts up. So that's a bit annoying.

My Advice

Keep an eye out for the little copper grounding plate when you unhook the battery wire. Also, remember to pack an extra pair of socks when you go camping.

My Problem

My battery was finished...i needed to charge my iphone tree times a day and this was so annoying, so i was thinking to buy a new phone. Then i thought that it was a good idea try and replace the battery. I bought the new battery here on ifixit and i was surprised...after the replacement i had a new iphone 4s...

My Fix

it took 10 minutes to replace the battery, the process is very easy even for those people are not practice with hand tools...it might take longer but is not difficult at all...just follow step by step the instruction.

My Advice

keep a good eye on the black clip where there is the battery connector...it might jump off if you don't pay attention ;)

My Problem

I had my iPhone 4s in my pocket and fell into the pool while I was cleaning it. After that, as other users have described, the camera flash stayed dimly lit and the battery life was extremely short, but the phone worked fine. I tolerated this for a little while and then got an iPhone 6. My 10 year-old son was always a fan of my 4s and now it was his to keep but the battery life was awful.

My Fix

I found fixit.com with a simple Google search. I surfed through it and decided to replace the rear camera and battery. For a little over 60 bucks I got the replacement parts and tools along with the liberation kit. I followed the instructions on the site and now my son has a functioning 4s!

My Advice

Be very careful and deliberate while doing the repair. Make special places beforehand for all the little screws that have to come off. I'm almost 50 and I wish I had some magnifying spectacles or something to magnify the whole situation. Everything you are dealing with is extremely tiny.

My Problem

I phone 4s battery losing charge while being charged.

My Fix

Repair went great. Instructions were on the mark! Took a little slow just to be careful but would not hesitate to order and repair my phone again!

My Advice

Just do it!

My Problem

The problem: I followed the advice of a page published by CNet on the internet on how to replace your for iPhone 4S battery for $8. The suggestion was go on eBay, save money. I then followed the video instructions linked to in that article on how to do the battery swap.

My Fix

Actually the 1st replacement went as smoothly as dealing with screws that are maybe 1/64th of an inch with the tools that were not magnetized. However when I checked the battery with an app that reports the conditioin the supposedly new 2680mAH battery had 308 load cycles and showed a maximum of capacity of 1429mAH. And I found the replacement held it's charge for a shorter time than my iPhone's 2.5 year old battery.

I emailed the company. They did come up with a full refund asking I not give them any negative reviews on eBay. Then I went looking on DuckDuckGo and found iFixIt's site.

My Advice

Advice: save yourself the extra hassle of replacing a cheap replacement. Take a look at the pictures I've provided. ($8. battery on left; iFixIt battery on right.) The $8. replacement was near the end of it's life cycle. The iFixIt replacement had only one load cycle which results from testing as a new battery should. And the tools were magnetized which aided tremendously.

My Problem

I received the used phone from a family member. A full charge on the battery wouldn't last a day.

My Fix

The repair process was OK. The tools were great--they worked flawlessly. The web-site pictures were good, but I needed more detail on the battery connection, and placement of the grounding clip.

My Advice

A comment on the web-site suggested using magnification for anyone over forty--I wish I had. Definitely do this is a well lit area, and if possible use a small tweezer (plastic) to place the grounding clip. My old, fat fingers were a huge liability. But I didn't lose the clip, or any screws and it is back together and working.

My Problem

Both my 4s and my brother's 5 were needing the battery swap.

My Fix

For both phones, the process was relatively easy, though I recommend not drinking two cups of coffee on an empty stomach right beforehand--shaky hands much? We both used the online guides, which made the procedure simple to follow.

My Advice

If you're not ready or willing to throw down stupid amounts of money on a new (or even used) phone just because your battery is no good, then this is the way to go.

My Problem

Long-time 4S companion's battery life had become erratic and much lowered wrt expected/original battery life with irregular charging time and capacity, and jumps when discharging (e.g. 35% -> 1% in a few seconds)

My Fix

Little issue.

Had seen comments about how bonded the original battery was, had not expected that I'd basically had to break it in half for it to finally surrender. Also more lint than expected had entered the phone.

Aside from these, the guide did a great job and the battery change went without a hitch.

My Advice

It's a bit terrifying when the original battery starts breaking instead of yielding, but don't worry too much over it, as long as you don't tear it open thing'll be peachy.
