$29? An Iphone 6s+ has a 2750 mah battery. I bought a 2600 mah battery pack at Target for $5. They can sell it at that price AFTER manufacturing, packaging, shipping and paying store employee costs and still make a profit. Maybe Apple adds a little bit of extra circuitry into their batteries to make them "more advanced", but $29 is frankly a ridiculous price to charge for a battery replacement, let alone the $79 they charge when they're not giving you a "special discount". Smh. Apple is a complete disgrace.
