“You guys literally saved my phone!!! It had said “battery needs service” for several months and I was on the verge of getting an iPhone 7 that I didn’t even want when I saw you guys and, on a whim, asked about my battery. Best decision ever! One week later, not only is it fixed, but you taught me how to fix it myself! Thank you thank you thank you!!!”

“My iPhone was charging inconsistently. IGG showed me how to clean out the charging port, and I even did it myself. Amazing how much crud was in my charging port. Leaving the IGG fully charged and ready to go!”
