Hey everybody, it’s Kathy from helpertech, and I’m going to talk to you today about the health meter on your iPhone phone. So, with the new iPhone, if you’ve ever updated past 11.1, you got this new feature that’s in the settings that will actually tell you what your max battery capacity is.

You can find that under Settings. Go down to Battery, and then there should be a new option called Battery Power. And, when you click on that it will usually tell you the percentage. It might still be at 100%. I’ve seen some as low as 85. Usually once you get to that point, there’s a couple of different things that you’ll notice. Generally, once it hits about 95, that’s when we actually swap out batteries for any phones that we refurbish. If you’re between 95 to 90, you might start noticing maybe you lose an hour, maybe it just doesn’t hold quite as long but it’s not too bad.

Once you hit 90% though and you’re down below that in the 80s, is when you really should start thinking about swapping out your batteries because at that point you’re probably only getting about five to six hours’ worth of battery life out of that. And, that means you’re charging it at least twice a day if you’re not even using the phone. If you’re actually using the phone, it might be more than that. And, you know you don’t want to have it be where, the cold weather like this kills the battery a lot faster. It might just be unreliable, it might jump around percentage-wise, charge up really fast but then die at the same rate.

So, if you come in, you can get it done. We’ve got a couple of different options for you. If you’ve got time to leave it with us, it takes about an hour and you’d be looking at $39. Otherwise, if you’re in a little bit more of a rush and want to do that repair in 15 minutes, we can do that, and you’d be looking at $59. It’s easy, it’s fast, you get a 90 day warranty on the battery, and you can get that done at either of our stores.

So, if your iPhone is not lasting long, bring it in, get the battery done. Check it on that battery meter. Like I said, if you’ve gotten past the update of 11.1, you’ve got it. So, otherwise, we’re open 10 to 6 during the week, and Saturdays 10 to 5. Sundays, noon to 5 as well. If you got any questions give us a call. Phone number is 651-605-2575. Thank you and have a nice day.
