FDP Forum / Moe's Tavern (_8^(I) / Replacing a battery in an old iPhone...

Can't afford a new phone right now, at least not the one I'd like and not on sale... needed to buy some time on the old one.

Damn those parts are small and delicate... way past what my fat fingers and eyesight want to do on a regular basis... I can see why it's said they're non user replaceable... iPhone 4s, and yes, successful.

If the old battery works at all another option would be a phone case with battery. Mophie makes a bunch of different types.

That’s a very good suggestion.

The new battery was about $6 with the tools needed being a little extra.

I just replaced the battery on my LG G3 Android. I wasn't sure if it was bloat from some apps, but no matter how much I tried I couldn't get more than half a day out of the phone. So I bought a bigger one from Amazon, this one coming with a new back cover to accommodate the bulk. After 3 days I plugged it in last night. It was at 50% charge.

Awesome.

The battery on my son's iPhone 5 has swelled out, deforming the case. The Apple store folks says it won't blow up but it's time for a new iPhone...

"I wasn't sure if it was bloat from some apps, but no matter how much I tried I couldn't get more than half a day out of the phone."

Do Android phones have a feature that tells you what's been using your battery?

I'm familiar with the iPhone and it will tell you what's been using your battery the past 24 hours. I used that to figure out that Siri and a couple rouge apps were eating up my battery overnite sitting on the bedside table! I turned off Siri and changed settings on the apps ( to prevent background running) that that made a huge improvement on my battery life.

Yeah, Androids have the ability to show usage. Mine indicated it was the sceen consuming most of the battery. I have also installed an app called Greenify which shuts down background services on specified apps. I also turned off location services. But I do believe the battery was just short cycling.

Most people are not going to be willing to try to disassemble an iPhone to replace the battery, and for those people, the charging case would solve the issue.

Its the one major downfall of the iPhone, before I got one I probably replaced my battery annually to make sure I maintained the most battery life.

My last iPhone went 2 1/2 years, and then the battery was so bad it lasted for a half day if I was lucky, if I was using it heavily it would last 2 hours. So I replaced it.

Would have been nice just to pop a new battery in there.

I had the exact same situation last year (son part, and all). We had the battery replaced at one of those walk in phone repair places for $50. Took about 10 minutes while we waited.
