Phone surgery

After 7 years, it finally puffed & died.

Unfortunately, the days of free phones with a 50 year contract are over. There are just $600 smartphones or $200 feature phones with 24 months of payments. You know you're old if you remember the 1st iPhone being an astounding $300.

The cap is required.

The battery replacement works, even if it's not mobile anymore. The current usage is 10mA in standby & 300mA when transmitting. A 5Ah Lipo would give 10 days of standby.

There are more permanent solutions, but by then it's time for a new phone.

This phone has sentimental value.

The original battery was not Lipo but an old school Li Ion can. There were still dinosaurs when those were around.
