  • Failed after 68 cycles

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    + way cheaper than Apple originals
    + originally worked nicely, with up to 3 hours usage (subjective)

    Cons:

    After only 61 cycles the battery refuses to work anymore ("Battery is not charging", "Check battery"). I tried resetting SMC and PRAM but it doesn't help. The battery still has charge (according to the indicator, 3/5 leds light up) but I just can't figure out how I could revive it. My MacBook seems to charge other batteries just fine.
    My original battery failed the same way after about 600 cycles. I guess it's possible that my MacBook is somehow faulty and broke both the batteries.

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    I was originally very happy with the battery but it failed very early on.
