    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Well fits at the place of the original battery.
    Better capacity, but I need to make more tests (charge/decharge cycles)
    A right angle ribbon is as a spare part....(see below)

    Cons:

    You will need use a solder iron
    The right angle ribon is not soldered to the battery and needs a special connector to make dry contact on the internal board of the iPhone (see below my tip)

    OtherThoughts:

    About the right angle ribbon :
    the better way is to unsold the original ribbon from the dead battery, and sold it to the new battery; that will give you also the Apple connector which make dry contacts on the board.
    You just need to know how desold 4 points and sold for points.
    You can recycle the yellow insulaton tape to place on the fresh solder joints before bend the ribbon.

    Bottomline:

    Be quiet, patient and that works !
    Other tip : to remove the upper part of the cabinet, I do not use a spugler, but a succion cup !
    You will save a lot of money ( I accept donations ;-))))) - Humor ! -
