Boost customer satisfaction by diagnosing a malfunctioning Tristar/Hydra chip and avoid replacing a perfectly good battery.  Immediately diagnose the most common hardware fault in an iOS device without opening the phone with version 2 of Smartmod's Tristar Tester.

What is a Tristar Integrated Chip?

A Tristar (or "Hydra" on newer devices) is an IC on the logic board that is responsible for the authentication of any device attached to the Lightning port. If the Tristar IC is damaged, it will not allow any communication or charging to proceed. For example, batteries won't charge or cables malfunction.

Compatibility:

Most iPhones, iPads, and iPods with a lightning connector.

Why test the Tristar IC?

  • Avoid paying extra for a flawed device by checking for a faulty Tristar/Hydra chip before making a purchase.
  • Save time by pointing out to your customers if the problem is an easy battery replacement or a more in-depth repair of the logic board.
  • Increase your turnaround time by diagnosing the repair quickly and actually completing repairs instead of wasting time performing lengthy diagnostics.
