    The Overstock price is great but -this battery was totally defective. Overstock gave me a refund ASAP (but no reimbursement for S&H). Excellent customer service.

    Like anything made by man, if you use it enough, it will need a replacement, and this product was it for me.

  • Worked fine at First
    Verified Purchase

    I have a iPhone 3G , So I bought this low cost battery and the install was very easy. You need more tools than what was given to do the install. I used a paper clip to take out the sim card, a 00 screwdriver for the tiny screws , a suction cup to lift up the screen. So this battery worked fine at first then my phone keep shutting of automatically stuck when it was on and , I took the phone apart again took out the battery then put it back in and still had the issue I then reinstalled my old battery and the problem went away, maybe I got a bad battery.

  • Not for 3GS iPhones!
    Verified Purchase

    Battery is listed as "3GS" compatible. After replacing my 3GS battery with this one, the phone went into recovery mode and refused to work properly. A trip to the Apple Store was of no help, only determined the problem through online research and 3rd party software to try to get out of recovery mode. Phone would not work again until original battery is reinstalled. Do the online research - many many other 3GS owners have had battery issues since ios 4.2.1 was released, and this battery is simply not compatible.

  • Definitely Satisfied
    Verified Purchase

    I had a great experience with this product. It shipped immediately, I received it when they said I would, it was packaged with care (in bubble wrap), and it worked. The battery replacement process is not for the technologically challenged but there are plenty of instructions on the Interwebs to help you figure it out. It's been about a week since I installed my battery and haven't had any issues...yet.

  • iPhone Battery
    Verified Purchase

    Although it was a bit tedious to say the least, replacement of the iPhone battery was actually very easy. There are several step-by-step resources on the internet - YouTube especially that guide you throughout the removal and replacement procedure. You'll need a set of jewelers tools, magnifying device and a very steady hand!! It took me about an hour to complete the job. Be sure to back up the phone first just in case. The new battery seems to last longer than the original in the 3G phone.

  • Poor performance
    Verified Purchase

    This battery fares only a bit better than the one I just replaced, which was the original 3G iPhone battery, with approximately 20 months of life. The original battery was 1150mA/h, and the one I just got was labeled 1500mA/h. So theoretically, the new one should go longer than the original one when I purchased the iPhone, but that's absolutely not the case. The tools were weak, and won't be useful in opening the glass cover, but are helpful in separating the connectors.

  • Perfect
    Verified Purchase

    The product arrived quickly and exactly as described. I will say the two tools were not much help in opening the case (removing the touchscreen), but they were useful when dealing with the cables and connections once inside the iPhone. After trying for several minutes to remove the touchscreen with the tools, I used a suction cup I had as I had seen in an online video and it popped right off.

  • Worked as advertised
    Verified Purchase

    About a month into it and the battery has held up. Bought it to replace a failing iPhone 3G battery that was about 18 months old and had to make it until I hit the magic 2 year mark for an upgrade. Only reason I gave it 4 stars was there were no included directions, although I found some great ones online.

  • iPhone Battery
    Verified Purchase

    Very fast delivery. The battery doesn't hold more than 4 hour power, same as the battery which I had in the iPhone for 2 years. Probably quality is not that good, but at a good price.

    The tools worked well, however the the battery stinks. Will not hold a charge. I had to put my old battery back in the phone. Sometimes you get what you pay for. Spend a little more and get a better product.
