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),

Pete

Alright, lets test the battery before sending you off to customer support. Complete the guide I have linked below. Make sure that you upload a screenshot of the coconutBattery window to your existing guide!

I didn't see how to insert an image into a comment, so I included it in an answer below. Hoping commenting here alerts you to it. Thanks again for your aid in this. I'm baffled right now.

Hi Aaron,

Thank you for the timely response. Am I reading this right? That this battery I just bought only charges to 51%?

@javajava 51% is your devices current charge. The battery appears to be charging to 100% design capacity. I will refer you to Meta now as this is a part related problem. Once we get 3 votes on migrating this question to the Meta you will be zapped over to Meta.ifixit.com
