    So after 2 years, my current iPhone 5 Battery Life is
    CycleCount: 622
    DesignCapacity: 1430
    FullChargeCapacity: 700

    So I would like to replace the battery myself… Any recommendations for an excellent battery and kit to purchase online perhaps off Amazon? I do not want to buy a knock off or a low quality battery. Looking for a new good quality battery.
    Any suggestions for actually replacing the battery? How to guide? etc?
    Thanks!

    How do you find your battery life numbers?

    It is not hard at all to open up a 5 disconnect things and install a battery. I watched the ifixit youtube video and have fixed four of them.

    What is the best way to maintain the health and longevity of my new battery?
    What methods and strategies of charging? etc.
    Thanks

    Also
    Do you think it may be useful or doable to put in a new battery that has higher mAh and capacity?
    I would love a new battery that can hold a charge for longer and better… I hate needing to recharge my iPhone constantly

    Don't believe those EBay auctions that state they have higher capacity batteries.
