    Check here before buying anything or paying apple

    https://www.apple.com/uk/support/iphone5-battery/

    FYI genuine apple batteries are very hard to come by

    Definitely check if yours is one of the recalled batch

    If it is, back it up and book an appointment with Apple. They will loan you a phone while they send yours off to get a new battery for free.


    Only problem is at the moment you can only book for 6 days in advance

    I need a 4s battery. In the past I bought spare Nokia & Andriod smartphone batteries, no-name but seemed as good as proper ones.

    Getting a reasonably priced iPhone one seems to be a minefield with not one seller escaping bad reviews. iPhone batteries are chipped, true/false? No-name ones could be unsafe, true/false?

    @Kingsd316
    Thanks very much for this info.
    I've had nothing but bother with my battery for the last 4-5 months & resorted to a full factory reset which has helped but still not good.
    Phone hits 20-30% then suddenly dies. Stick it on charge & it starts off @ about 40%. Been doing my head in lol
    Was just about to change it for the 6 but I'll keep it now on a sim only deal & save £20+ a month
    Cheers


    A proper money saving post for a change :)
  • Phone is over two years, and have checked serial number and is not one of the affected iphone 5 battery.
    @milko - my phone is the same will suddenly drop from 30% down to 2% then switch off.

    I don't think i'd be entirely comfortable with fitting the battery myself.

    Have you tried a dfu reset ?
  • I recommend Iphone Bits in Newtownabbey. Have done several Android repairs for me very competively and as self-procliamed Iphone experts would imagine they also replace batteries.
  • I was in Iphix beside the Bow Street Mall in Lisburn on Friday getting my daughters phone fixed, and I overheard another customer asking about an iphone battery, so know that they fit them, though don't know the cost, but I do know that they are cheaper for screen fixes than most other places out there, and come with a 6 month warrenty. This is the second time my daughter has dropped her phone and needed screen replaced and they do a top notch job for £28 (iphone4) so it may be worth giving them a ring to get a price.

    They are also on facebook

    Hope you get sorted
