tips on getting a replacement iphone under applecare

Last Modified: 2015-04-27
i've wiped my iphone 5 etc and still feel battery life is not what it shoudl be / i carry around several battery packs to keep the phone going during the day.  any tips on how to get them to replace it under applecare (the 2 year extende warranty?).  I know they will run a battery test, but if it doesn't fail that, short of just breaking the screen intentionally, is there advice on what dto say / what to do  to get them to replace it?

it's not part of the battery recall and not part of the slide switch recalls.
