Replacement battery won´t hold a charge and stays at 1%

I bought a new battery from iFixIt and finished installing last night. I didn’t have my power brick with me so I assumed that the new battery was completely discharged since my MacBook Pro wouldn’t power back on. I plugged it in this morning and powered it up. Everything booted up normally but I noticed that the battery wouldn’t go above 1%. When I unplugged it from power it shut down and I had to walk through the start up process once again once I plugged it back in.

I searched the forums and walked through resetting the SMC and PRAM. I opened it back up again to double check the cables were completely connected and I visually didn’t notice anything out of order. Is there anything else I can try or might I have a bad replacement possibly?

I did download coconutBattery. I’m attaching a screenshot from the app along with my Power System Settings dialog box. Anyone have any other ideas?

You'll need to see what the USB-C port your power unit is plugged in. You'll need a USB-C power meter like Satechi USB-C Power Meter Tester

Let us know what its telling you.


Thanks Dan. I'll go ahead and give that a try and report back. Much appreciated.
