MacBook not running off battery after replacement

The battery in my MacBook Pro A1425 was draining fast and had to be charged constantly, so I decided to buy a replacement.

I replaced the battery, it’s recognized by macOS, but it won’t run on battery power, and it says it’s not charging. It only runs with the power cord connected.

I tried to put the old battery back, but it now has the same problem, won’t run of the battery.

So now the new battery is back inside.

Tried resetting SMC a couple of times, but no difference.

This is what coconutBattery tells me.

It’s possible you got a bad battery, I’d try changing it again. Maybe this time from a different vendor.
