    Hi all,
    I 'm looking to replace the battery in my iPhone 5. I've read many horror stories about people receiving used batteries with over 100 charging cycles on them. So I'm asking if you could recommend a good company to order a battery from that I could trust would send me a new one.

    Thanks

    Well, http://ifixit.com is one option. Their prices are not the lowest, but these guys will not mess with you and they will not give you any bs if the battery they send you turns out to have a problem. There are good batteries on ebay as well but you have to pay a lot more attention. In any case, don't accept anything with many cycles on it.

    +1 for iFixit. I get all of my replacement gear from them and have never had a single issue.
