Battery arrived as expected, cable is not bent but fully flat and stiff. Attempted to match bend of original battery to as to be able to install it into the device. First bend of cable de-laminated copper wires at the battery end of the cable coming out of the battery. Finished installation just in case what I was looking at that appeared to be bare copper was maybe just missing paint. No go, only does the flashing Apple Logo and never boots or will not even do the Factory Reset. Reinstalled old battery which at least allows for booting the device again. This appears to have been mostly a waste of $15.00 except for the nice little tool set that I know I will get additional use out of. Review of the return policy has me wondering if it will be of any value to attempt an exchange or return…..since I was the one who bent the cable…..
