I replaced the battery on my MacBook 13” mid-2010 with an Anker aftermarket battery. The battery wouldn’t charge and the computer did not recognize it. The magsafe light stayed green. I followed some advice from this site and put the old battery back in, made sure it was charging with the magsafe orange light on, and did a hard shutdown. Then I put the new battery back in, reset the SMC but did not boot the computer.
Supposedly this sequence of actions fools the computer into recognizing the battery, thinking it’s the old battery.The orange charge light was on, and I left it shut down overnight. In the morning, the green light was on, and the battery fully charged. The computer recognized the battery, and all seemed good. I disconnected the magsafe and ran the computer on the battery for a while, down to 80%, and then reconnected the magsafe. The battery wasn’t charging. With the computer asleep, it still wouldn’t charge.
Coconut battery app said everything was good, battery indicator on computer was normal, but wouldn’t charge. That night, I did a hard shutdown, and the battery immediately started charging, orange light on. In the morning it was fully charged, green light. At this point, I’m not going to complain, but it would be nice if the computer would charge without the hard shutdown.
