So I just bought a new macbook battery for my 13" macbook, and it worked perfectly!... for a few days. Now It'll charge up to about 24% and then just stop. I can leave it plugged in for long after that, and it'll stay at 24%. When I unplug it, it starts using the battery from 24 on down. I don't know what happened or how to fix this problem. Any suggestions?

Call Apple.

I haven't had the best luck with calling them or emailing them in the past, so I was wondering if anyone here maybe had this problem before and could help.

try draining your battery all the way down and let your computer die.

Then plug it in and then reboot and see if that will help at all.

Did you buy this used, refurbished, or from a third party?
