    I went today to my Genius Bar appointment and they ran the battery diagnostic check and advised that the battery was no longer working to its fullest capability.  They decided to replace this immediately at no cost and now we are all fixed.  No need to plead my case, just excellent service.

    I had gone to the Apple store for this issue but becuase I am 1 year and 2 months over the allowed 1 year warranty, I was told that I would need to pay about $80 plus tax to have my battery replaced.  That is almost what I paid to enter the contract with the phone company.  I asked them if this is the case, under a 3 year plan am I responsible for replacing the battery 3 times?

     

    Excellent service for those who are lucky enough have found the defective phone before the warranty 1 year period.  Not Excellent service for those who are outside that period.

    SOLVED:

    I restored my iPhone 4s as new and this solved the problem but only for a couple of days. I tried everything people suggested here but nothing really worked. A couple of days ago, I replaced the battery with one that I had bought from iFixit and now the battery consistently goes right down to 1% before the iPhone shuts down. The old battery was 2 years old when the problem started and it wasn't expanded when I removed it.

    At first, I wasn't sure about buying a non-OEM battery from iFixit but now I'm really happy with the result.

    I also replaced 3 iPhone 5 batteries in the past few days (mine, my wife's, and co-worker's), and everyone has HUGELY improved battery life.

     

    I don't know if the iFixit batteries are OEM or not, but all the markings on the new battery looked the same or close to my original battery.  I'd be willing to bet they came out of the exact same factory.

     

    $30 for a battery kit with tools included (I think they have it on sale now for $25, same as the battery alone), plus about 10 minutes of time to replace it.  I highly recommend it to anyone having potential battery issues.

    I did email iFixit and they said that their batteires are not OEM but have the same specifications of Apple OEM batteries.
