Replace iPhone battery

Recommended Posts

You will never get the real product, because only Apple has the real genuine battery and they do not sell to third-party unless their certified partners. 

 

Having that said, you can get expensive batteries manufactured to the same standards as Apple's, and therefore virtually the same thing. Such as iFixit Battery. Or, 

you can get cheaper batteries which are also worse in terms of how long the charge lasts, and how long does it take for their capacity to start decreasing. 

 

I would advise either biting the bullet and paying Apple for the repair. Or ordering the iFixit battery yourself, and having some technician install the battery which you ordered in front of you.

Be careful. Every 'local' Technician I have given a phone to in Thailand has broken it. That's two iPhones and a Blackberry. Also two laptops. They are simply careless. So now two iPhones without Touch ID because of morons.

Official service centres have been better.

I guess I'm the odd man out because I have had batteries replaced in iPhones several times and have never had a bad experience. The phone kiosks in Central Festival. Find one who does the repairs themselves (easy to spot). It's a ten minute job. The batteries they install have always been just fine for me.

Makes no difference. One idiot did the repair in front of me...with a Stanley knife. There are delicate wires under the Home button and if you accidentally separate them, end of phone function. Two different technicians from two different alleged Apple specialists committed the same idiocy. So be careful out there.

If you can not name the "Apple specialists" please let us know where they are located so that we may have a chance to avoid them.  Thank you.

Hmmm...if you are in Pattaya....be careful of whom you choose around the streets of Tukcom.
