(PIX11) - Apple is recalling faulty iPhone 5 batteries on certain devices, and the company will replace them for free for qualifying customers.

For those who constantly walk around with a charger and can't make it through the day without scanning for a socket, the news is huge.

However, not everyone qualifies -- Apple says that only iPhone 5 handsets sold between September 2012 and January 2013 have the battery problem that causes them to drain abnormally.

Find out if you qualify for a free iPhone 5 battery by visiting the Apple website.
