    Ok, so my battery barely lasts a day I'm thinking it's just tired I never had one new so not sure how long they usually last new but I'm gonna try to replace mine..

    Is this battery fine?

    Is this housing good?

    Do I need the guts for the housing or can I pop my old metal pieces into new housing?

    Any input is greatly appreciated.

    Mine lasts only about 13 hours with light use.. And it will only charge to 95 percent max and it falls to like 88 percent veeeery quick (couple mins) and then it fallls a little slower from then on and usually only lasting 12-14 hours being lightly used

    Youtube has many tutorials on how to open it. But it's very risky if something comes up u need new board too..

    Completely up to you, but to be honest I wouldn't go for that rear housing. The iPhone logo looks wrong, and obviously the S/N isn't gonna match - or do they ask for it and then print it on?

    No clue about the S/N But I could just write my down incase I can't access it from the screen for some reason I hope to never find out.. Does anyone make a replacement battery that will last longer?
