This is not a repair service listing. Simply the part that repairs your issue.

iPhone 5 ‘Not Charging’ Solution IC

This repair part and solution is for iPhone 5 that is not charging when connected to your computer or usb charger or battery not retaining charge when fully charged

You have changed the battery, dock connector, and checked that the FPC battery connector is OK, but it makes no difference in fixing your issue.

This is caused by an IC controller chip that is burnt out when it is damaged in any way it opens the circuit between the USB charger and the battery.

Some symptoms of an iPhone that has a faulty U2 IC are:

– Battery won’t charge beyond 1%
– iPhone automatically powers itself on
– when the battery is removed and the iPhone is placed on charge it does not boot to the Apple logo
– when the iPhone is put onto charge the screen stays blank and the iPhone remains lifeless

The cause of this component becoming faulty is really quite simple – third party chargers and USB leads!

The original Apple chargers and USB leads regulate the voltage and current to a level that protects your valuable iPhone and prevents it from damage.

Charging your iPhone using a third party charger or USB lead that does not regulate this as much as it allows for larger variables in voltage and current, this then damages the U2 IC and can leave you with a seemingly dead iPhone 5.

Another common reason for this is also charging your iPhone 5 from the cigarette lighter of your car. This does not regulate the voltage as well as the original AC adapter as the power is coming from the alternator. 

It has been proven that non OEM / non original chargers cause this issue. 

It damages the chip. 

This is the #1 motherboard issue for all iPhone 5. We have repaired and sold hundreds of these chips already! Just imagine the number of users who use non original chargers throughout the world! You will see many clients come to you for this repair! We recommend you having a significant stock of this chip for many years to come. 

Apple has not issued a solution or a statement for this issue . All they do with the new iOS 8+ is to warn users not to use non-original chargers.

 That is not going to solve this issue!

We have done this repair ourselves with a soldering tip and heat gun! See the pictures in the listing! 

When you do this repair, you need to break the glass right above the chip to remove it! 

The chip we send you does not have this glass above it.
