MBP (A1260) Kills Batteries
My A1260, (S/N 8YK0) worked fine until the first battery finally gave up the ghost after 3 years. I bought a new one from Apple and it charged fine, but after a month of normal use that changed. The pull down menu for the battery said "Replace Now" and the computer would not last 10 seconds without the charger. I suspected there was something wrong with the computer so I bought two, new, OEM batteries from a third party: TechOrbit. I verified that it replaced the A1175 and was a Li-ion, 10.8V, 60Wh battery.
These two batteries had the same problem the first day. I believe there is something in the computer, a logic board or similar, which is responsible for recharging management but is failing somehow.
Am I on the right track? If so, what part is the likely culprit?
Is this a good question?
