iFixit Replacement Battery Stays Charged Less Than 3-4 Hours; Help?
Hello Rogue Repairfolk,
I replaced a dying battery in an iPhone 7 Plus on Tuesday with the iFixit repair kit/replacement battery. Phone turns on fine. Phone charges (it is an official Apple charger, just in case this is relevant) up to 100%. After replacing it, we calibrated the phone just to be sure.
But now the phone goes from 100% charged to 0% in about 3-4 hours of use (over the course of an 8 hour work day). I know assumptions are dangerous with electronics, but I am assuming that the connectors are fine since it DOES charge, it DOES turn on, and DOES work, but just refuses to hold that charge.
Not sure what I should do next outside of sending the battery back to iFixit and getting another battery. I am hoping there is something else I can do that would allow me to fix this issue in a timely manner.
Thanks for the help (if anyone can),
Is this a good question?
