IPad Battery Replacement?

Recommended Posts

I have a 5 year old IPad, and the battery doesn’t seem to last very long. Is IPad battery replacement something that can be done in Thailand, or should I wait until I am back in the USA?

 

Is it common for IPad batteries to wear out?

I have an iPad Air 2...the battery is supposed to last 10 hours!  I had the original battery replaced at a kiosk in Market Village in Hua Hin.  The replacement battery didn't last any longer than the original!  When I got back to the US...I changed it again in August at a shop called "Batteries Plus" in Oregon.  I don't think they did a  damn thing other than keep it for about a week, & charged me $100 for the privilege!  It's still now only lasting 2 to 3 hours at best!  Batteries Plus said I could bring it back in, & they would take a look at it!  I don't need to them to look at it;  I  just need them to replace the damn battery with a genuine Lithium one from Apple like they were supposed to do in the 1st place!  I sure hope you have better luck than I did in finding a quality replacement batttery!

All batteries wear out they have a limited number of recharges available.

Yes the battery is replaceable in Thailand. 
My recommendation is to get a genuine apple battery replacement as there are a vast number of cheap low quality batteries. The Apple repair stores are all over Thailand, cost is ฿ 3,300.

If your iPad is in perfect condition it is possible that you will get a replacement reconditioned unit rather than actually getting the battery actually replaced in your iPad

Regrettably you got a low quality battery at a lower than Apple replacement price.
 

There are many cheap batteries produced. Few independent repairers actually get the genuine Apple battery, fewer still try to educate customers as to why they should pay the higher price that they need to to get the original quality.

 

Most people do not Do the calculations that means the genuine replacement at an apple service Center will actually cost about ฿ 1.8 per day (assuming 5 years lifetime)
