    Hi all,

    I upgraded my old iPhone 5 with an iPhone 6+, I am astonished at the battery life of this latter one, I can't believe I come back home at evening with well over 50% left if not more whilst the iPhone 5, even though old, didn't last the morning... I know the battery is over 2 years old but I don't remember it lasting any close to the 6+ even when it was brand new.

    Thinking of replacing the battery of the 5 to extend its life and to give it to either my mum or to keep as a backup, I found many replacement kits (battery 1.4Ah), would it be worth or better buy a battery case and leave it as it is (I have good manual ability in taring off tech equipment, well, put it back together is a different story :-D )?

    Thank you

    The battery is not bad on 5, it's just that the capacity on 6plus is huge and it's a beast, lasts all day +
