Great price for replacement battery – Apple iPhone 3G 3.7V Rechargeable Battery Reviews

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

Pros:
Great price for replacement 3G phone. Cost for OEM replacement is insane, and sending back the phone to Apple is not an option. The shipping alone is 3 times more!!
Cons:
The battery is good, nothing really wrong with it except it probably has a little less capacity and maybe life (charge recharge cycles may be a little down compared to stock).
Other:
While the battery is ok, the job to replace it is not straight forward. I am an Engineer, so it will come easy to me, but the average person may have a tough time and be intimidated by the tiny connectors and hardware.
Bottomline:
If you need to keep your old 3G running (use it as an ipod), then you probably need a new battery by now. This is the best price for a battery, as long as you are comfortable in the process.
