My battery is 300+ cycles on my iPhone 5s, and it is draining very quickly, even though I do not have much applications running, and not many of them use background app refresh. Where and/or how can I find a decent replacement battery for iPhone 5s?

I would buy an replacement battery for your iPhone 5s from iFixit. They provide also the tools to replace your battery. It's a trustworthy company. Worked with their parts/tools many times.


All iPhone 5s Models (Not iPhone SE, 5 or 5c)


Voltage: 3.8

Watt Hours (Wh): 5.92

Capacity: 1558 mAh

Apple Part #: 616-0718, 616-0719, 616-0720, 616-0721, 616-0722, 616-0728


One Year Warranty - This iFixit product is guaranteed to function for one year.

I do not have financial ties with iFixit!

  • I think also that this would be the best solution, but I also will wait for other suggestions. Aug 2, 2017 at 11:20
  • Can't get it from iFixit, since it is 70USD for shipping, so it's not an option for me. It's just to expensive. Dec 14, 2017 at 0:18

The iPhone 5 has a limit of 800 cycles with its battery. If you are experiencing that, I'd contact Apple Support and have them run a diagnostic test on the iPhone and test the battery.

If they detect any unnormal battery behaviors they'll let you know.

An iPhone backup, and restore should also be a useful tool if you still arent convinced that the battery is ok.
