Why is the new replacement battery not charging?
I ordered a replacement battery from iFixit and installed it. Unfortunately, the battery is not charging and my laptop can only remain on by staying plugged to the power cord. I reinstalled the old swollen battery and holds a charge for about 40 minutes before shutting down. Also, the light on the charger is green at all times when the new battery is installed and the old battery goes from green to orange to green once charged.
Is this a sign of the new battery being defected? I’ve done a NVRAM/PRAM and SMC reset with the new battery.
Attached are pics of the results.
Is this a good question?
How was the old battery unplugged the first time? Was it with a metal pry tool by any chance?
