    Hello everyone,

    for the last couple of month I have notice that my iPhone 5 got completely mad. shut down at 31% than opens up again without charging in 5% and working for at least an hour
    in total the phone could hold up to more than 4-5 hours without shutting down
    I have used iBackupBot to see my battery parameters and saw these details:
    CycleCount: 578
    DesignCapacity: 1430
    FullChargeCapacity: 800

    So I understood that my battery is bad!!
    yesterday I went and replaced my battery in local fixing lab (we don`t have apple support in my country) and I was told that i`m getting a new battery.

    But...

    After running iBackupBot again I saw these details:
    CycleCount: 120
    DesignCapacity: 1430
    FullChargeCapacity: 1400

    I`m guessing that this info means that the battery is not new, am I right?
    in fact it`s look like it is very old battery...right?

    however, despite the high cycle count it seems that the battery condition
    is not bad? am I right?

    Does a new battery comes with "0" cycle count?

    Thanks in advance for any responses

    That's a used battery but in near perfect condition. If it was cheap I'd keep it but if you paid a lot then complain!
