Multiple new batteries failing in my Mac retina Mid 2012
My original Macbook retina mid 2012 battery was dying after 5 yrs of use and 850 cycle.
So I bought a new battery, installed it and after few days of use, the design capacity went down to 81%.Mac shutdown at about 28%. I returned it with no hassle. Battery was a yr old.
Then I bought another one, battery was 5 yrs old. I got the "replace now" error after few days of use.
Then I bought one from amazon, same problem. Few days later I saw the design capacity problem again.
Bought another one in eBay from a reputable vendor. Same capacity design problem, mac shuts down at about 30%. Seller is sending me another battery.
It seems to me the problem gets worse once I start doing calibrations and SMC resets.
I'm starting to thing the problem is somewhere else. Any ideas?

Is this a good question?
