4.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth It
I was a bit concerned as some other reviews implied that this was not a genuine Apple part.and there were some scare stories about faulty iphone batteries being sold: but I was unable to find a truly genuine Apple replacement at a comparable price.. I noted that the part number (APN 616-0435 VPN LIS1416APPC) was slightly different from the original Apple battery...

1.0 out of 5 stars APN 616-0432 NOT 0434
The battery supplied is for the 3GS, but it's an old version of the battery, not the newer version advertised on this page!

If you need the newer version of the battery (i.e. to be compatible with iOS6) do not buy from here.

I was a bit concerned as some other reviews implied that this was not a genuine Apple part.and there were some scare stories about faulty iphone batteries being sold: but I was unable to find a truly genuine Apple replacement at a comparable price.. I noted that the part number (APN 616-0435 VPN LIS1416APPC) was slightly different from the original Apple battery (APN:616-0431 VPN GB-S10-374270-0100) but the replacement went fine. The capacity is now about three times what I was getting from the worn out original. I also enjoyed the complex replacement process as it gave me chance to see inside the phone and the videos on Youtube give a clear guide. Allow yourself a couple of hours to do the replacement if you haven't taken an iphone apart before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works for me, 21 May 2013

I would never recommend any one tries to replace the battery on their iPhone but, it took me 20 minutes, I used a screwdriver and the window sucker from a 'Gizmo' toy, and now I have a working iPhone for under a tenner.

Watch the videos online, and be very, very careful and patient, these phones are assembled by 6 year old children with nimble fingers, ultra fast reflexes and IQs over 160. As a four thumbed 45 year old with too much coffee on board I'm amazed at how I matched up to their level of skill.

Works well and as expected and the sticky part was useful to help fix it into position. No problems and would recommend.

I bought this item because my 3GS was conking out when it showed a battery level of 93%. I watched a few online videos on how to replace the battery, and then made the attempt myself. Worked fine, and my i\phone 3GS is now like new. I did have a few qualms because of the part number that arrived (616-0432). This was different from the one shown in the image (616-0434). But as it turned out, it was also different from the one of my original battery (616-0435). And as I said, the replacement works amazingly well. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible product - would not charge, 16 Oct. 2013

This review is from: GENUINE Apple Replacement Li-ion Polymer 3.7V Battery for iPhone 3GS brought to you by TDS *WITH ADHESIVE BACK STRIP* (Electronics)
I spent fifteen minutes carefully removing the old battery and then another ten minutes carefully replacing with this piece of rubbish. finally closed up the phone. The phone switched on but had no charge. Charged the battery overnight but battery did not increase one bit. Might as well have left the old battery in there!
Utter rubbish.

I guess you get what you pay for. Buy the proper replacement.

After two years my iPhone 3GS battery was running out rather quickly, but the phone was otherwise working well and certainly not ready to be replaced, so a new battery seemed the ideal solution. Realising that actually replacing the battery was likely to be beyond my capabilities, I got a local phone shop to do it for £10. They confirmed that this was indeed a genuine Apple battery; there were no problems with installation and the phone now keeps its charge and is as good as new.

2.0 out of 5 stars Little improvement - it's an older style battery, 17 Aug. 2013

This review is from: GENUINE Apple Replacement Li-ion Polymer 3.7V Battery for iPhone 3GS brought to you by TDS *WITH ADHESIVE BACK STRIP* (Electronics)
It is an official Apple battery but an older model number. I did enjoy the fiddly battery swapping process and didn't blow the phone up which was good, but the new battery can't handle the processing power needed by modern iOS versions. Works only a little better than the previous battery. Avoid. Find out what the latest battery model number is then find one of those on Amazon and pay a few quid more.
