Hello,

As I am from Europe and since there is no Apple stores near me, what can you guys recommend in terms of replacing my battery? I have that app called "batteryinfolite" and it says I've done over 210 cycles and my max capacity is down to like 1310mAh. So I'm guessing it's time for a change, I've had the phone since the first week or so of launch.

What is the safest place to buy a original battery online for my 4s? I have tried eBay and found a reliable seller from UK but the price of the item is only like 10GBP is that normal? Does anyone have any other site where they sell original batteries and ship to Europe?

Any input is appreciated. Thx

Does your iPhone last the same amount of hours it did when you first got it?
Well I'm not so sure, I have been testing it for the past few days and I get around 6-7 hours of usage and like 12 hours of standby, before it was 8+ hours of usage and 13-14h of standby.


This is the battery I have found on eBay:

And this is one I found on ifixit.com:

Is it the same one? Costs a bit more on ifixit.com ($29.95 + $10.00 of shipping compared to $30.00).
