Symptoms of a damaged component include:
- 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
Authentic Apple equipment regulates voltage and current to a level that is safe for the components of your device. Charging with unauthorized chargers and cables may allow for a larger variance in voltage and current which then damages the U2 IC.
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. If you need to charge our iPhone or any electrical equipment in your car we would recommend a good quality inverter with your original charger and USB lead.
