Battery Condition "Replace Now" after replacement.

I replaced the battery in my macbook, connected the power cord and turned it on. The power cord indication light remained green and when I click on the battery percentage it says "replace now."

Hi gargivarun, I followed the troubleshooting and reset the SMC but, alas, no help. My old battery still works (albeit, poorly) so my guess now is that the battery I got isn't working. I think my next step is returning it and trying a different battery. Thank you!

I had this issue with two replacement batteries, tried the SMC reset, PRAM reset, etc. One of the two responded for a little bit (24-48 hrs), but then would fall back into the "replace now" status and the laptop would not stayed on under battery power. The other battery never responded and immediately said "replace now".

Working with support, I received a cross ship of a third battery and it has worked flawlessly - no SMC reset, no PRAM reset, just replaced and powered up and works great.

So, my suggestion is report the issue back to support and get a second (third, fourth...?) sent out to you. Can't say why, but seems there is some percentage of bad apples in the mix.

Note that I used coconutBattery to document the battery situation with replacement #1 & #2 for support. Gives a series of good data points that demonstrates the status with notation of the battery production dates and cycles. When you think you have a good battery, though, make sure you use it for longer than a couple of days before you call it a victory.

Where did you end up getting your battery from? I bought mine from a reputable eBay vendor, they refunded my money but didn't ask for it to be returned. I need to find one from a source that has working batteries. I checked out the bad one I got with coconut battery and its was manufactured in March 2013 with 8 load cycles, holding 42% charge. Not sure what to do with it now.

I purchased mine through ifixit. It was their support that provided the replacements (eventually a working one).

I've experienced the same issue as you all have. The replacement battery, in my case a Lizone, did not start the Mac Book and the MagSafe power cord LED was solid green. I contacted Lizone and they immediately sent me a replacement battery and wah la...the MacBook started up :) It was a defective battery.

I still have the same issue. My MacBook Pro is still 3months old :( and it's a bad experience :( too bad Apple :( really disappointed :(

Just an update to my 11/20/2016 post. The replacement Lizone battery did not extend the battery duration...still only good for about 50 minutes till its discharged. I pretty well have to have the power cable near me at all times.

I am also having this issue. I just replaced the battery and mine says "Condition: Replace Now." It will not charge, so I have to keep my MagSafe plugged in or the laptop dies. The battery is supposedly at 44% though. Did another new battery help?? I'm still waiting on a reply from the seller to try to return mine...

Just purchased a battery for my late 2013 model; and after about a month of it working well, it’s now gone into the “Replace Now” status too. By all accounts it seems like it should be fine. Laptop is saying it has great capacity, and it’s only got 9 cycles on it.

This battery issue seems to be affecting all parts of my system. Laptop overall is less responsive, boot up takes longer, and random programs opening up, etc. - even while plugged in. *Sigh*

Did you ever figure this out?

It is uncanny how similar the events have been to the battery I received a month ago. I have a late 2013 15'' and exactly at 9 cycles (after about a month of proper use) it said replace now. Shows full charge under system information but disconnects as soon as power cable is removed.

It is working at the default 800MHz CPU speed (Mac OS throttles CPU when a battery is not detected).

I provided iFixit with screenshots, lets hope they do something about it.

I know, it's been 7 years since you posted. But I'll still leave a suggestion.

I suggest you check the battery’s condition - by going into System Information (accessible in the Other folder in Launchpad or by clicking System Report... in About This Mac, Apple logo on top left) and going to Hardware>Power. You want to pay attention to "Cycle Count" and see the number. The number should be quite low (e.g. 0-20) if it was truly new, anything like 520 something likely means it’s a used battery from another MacBook.

Cycle count isn’t everything however. I had a 2008 MacBook with only 143 cycles yet the battery only held a charge for 5 minutes before dying. Turns out the replacement battery itself was crappy, so it didn’t last long at all.
