MacBook Air 13inch - New battery worked then wasnt recognised
I recently replaced my original battery in my Macbook Air, using an Ifixit battery and following the guide.
I did a battery calibration and then for the first 2-3 days after the replacement the new battery worrked flawlessly.
I use the laptop till about 80% charge. The next morning i go to turn it on and it doesnt boot. I plug the charger in and try to boot, it boots but no battery is shown in the tool bar. If i disconnect the charger it instantly turns off.
I cant acess any information about the new battery. I have tried using CoconutBattery:
I then followed this guide: MacBook Air Battery not even recognized after being Recalibrated
I have tried:
- SMC reset (80s on the power button and 15s)
- PRAM reset
When i plug my original battery back in, it is recognised by Coconutbattery:
Anyone have any ideas? could the new battery just be faulty?
From further reading looks like this could be a faulty issue with the new battery.
