FP2 bottom module (spare part)

Hello,

I am looking for a FP2 bottom module as Fairphone stopped selling them (inexplicably).

It would be to be shipped to Spain (Mallorca).

Thanks in advance!

Be aware, that cross-border shipment of batteries outside a phone is virtually impossible for individuals.

Welcome to the forum. I suppose Fairphone can’t make them forever and there has to be a cut off.

Hopefully you have seen other requests for the same, they are in demand as you can imagine. There are also posts on repairs.

What is wrong with the one you have?

Hello amoun and thanks for the reply. The phone just died a week ago and does not respond at all. It was charging normally (at 40% battery) and when I went back to it it had switched off and never switched on again. According to Fairphone support, it is probably the bottom module, though a problem with the core module can not be discarted.

If it is only a charging problem you may be able to find someone with a charged battery to confirm. There are Fairphone angels around and about who may be able to suggest some thing or someone close to you.

You may also be able to get the battery charged independent of the phone, again to ensure it is a charging problem.

There is always a possibility that the bottom module may ruin a charged battery if it has a fault so it may be possible to see if the phone switches on with a charged battery with the bottom module removed. Again a Fairphone angel with FP2 experience would be able to let you know.

If you look at the image below and compare you may be able to tell if it is a fatigued soldering connection, which could be fixed.
