Replacement batteries keep dying.
I bought a replacement battery for my Razer Blade Stealth 13.3” (2017). After installing the battery, it worked fine for a while. Then I left it to charge fully and kept it plugged in while the laptop was powered off. When I came back, the battery wasn’t working at all. I also bought a second replacement battery and installed it and the same thing happened; it worked fine, sustained charge and was charging normally. I left it plugged in and then when I tried powering the laptop on it wouldnt do anything. I used a multimeter to check and saw 0V across the terminals of both batteries. With the dead battery connected and the laptop being plugged in for power, the battery icon on the taskbar shows the battery as normal and plugged in and says “(96% available, plugged in)”, but as soon as you remove the charger the laptop switches off and doesnt power on again (on battery). I’m not sure why this happened since laptops have protection from overcharging. The original battery that came with my laptop works fine, no problems with charging (so it’s not a fault in the charger), the reason I wanted to replace it was because its capacity had decreased and wouldnt power the laptop for longer than 20 mins.
I apologize for the long description.
Any information on why this might have happened would be highly appreciated.
Это хороший вопрос?
I am having the same problem. Like, exactly the same with my 2017 Razer Stealth. My original battery is bloated, but still works while the replacement is not working. In addition, I got a replacement for my replacement and I made sure to turn on the laptop right after installing the new battery and it worked without being plugged in. After charging for a few hours the battery would no longer provide power if unplugged. I am using the original USB-C charger that came with my laptop.

Well, I just had the EXACT same thing happen to me. My old battery wasn’t holding charge for more than a few minutes off power so I ordered a new one off ifixit and replaced the older battery which was beginning to bloat. Installed and powered it on, left it charged until at capacity (only reached 96%) and left it for a number of hours. As soon as the power plug is removed, it falls over. I uninstalled the drivers and rechecked the connection. The battery report shows the battery change and lack of ability to draw off the battery….but again, is showing that it is 96% charged. It was at <5% when I installed it originally. Battery is brand new from ifixit and at a bit of a loss.
Soooo anyone have any bright ideas?
I'm facing exact same issue. I'm at a computer store and I've checked upto 5 replacements from different vendors. What I think is that these batteries have stayed in the store for so long that their cells are now dead. What do we do then? Are we to maybe half charge the battery for multiple times (ensuring it doesn't go near 90%)? And how long do we have to do this before the battery cells adjust. I'm so frustrated right now because I had to cover many miles to solve this battery problem. Can someone try to see if this solves the problem?
