Struggling with my aging iPhone 7 plus battery health

To Repair or to Replace? That is the question. (a butchered William Shakespeare)

I’m struggling to make it through the day with my aging iPhone 7 plus. Besides the failing battery, the smartphone still satisfies my needs so I’m not jumping up and down to replace the phone … besides the new iPhone 15’s are not really being discounted .. YET

So as I watch the battery draining  and monitor my off and on “airplane mode,” it is time to contemplate a self-replace of the battery. It could be a little bit of a challenge, but really doesn’t look too bad … IF I can find a decent quality replacement battery for a low enough price???
