Wifes iPad Original Air A1494 battery doesn't last long

How hard is it to change the battery in the A1474 iPad Air?

And where would be the fastest delivery, and quality replacement found?

Currently waiting for iPad to charge, has the empty battery picture.... so its completely dead, but will charge... But cant follow the fixit site to Choose the Amount of Memory, then with more details on possible how to and cost of replacement battery.

Just read the instructions. They went On and On, and On.

Looks like adhesive and must take and BE CAREFUL constantly. And I kept reading, and it looks like a complete teardown, to replace the battery. With fixit parts kit and battery around $45.

Looks like a bigger job than I have ever attempted.

Yes, it takes a long time to get it apart because Apple didn't design it to be opened easily.

There is a fairly high probability that the dead battery might not be the only issue.

One of the better/well known iPad repair places is [forum.ipadrehab.com]. Looks like it is about $35 (not including battery?).

Sounds like an excellent reason to upgrade... $249 for a brand new one
