I have a Lizone battery installed in my mid 2010 MacBook Pro and have been having issues with Mac OS not allowing it to charge to 100% nor recognizing when the battery is reaching dangerously low levels. This is the second Lizone non-oem battery I have installed into this machine after my first one depleted to 0% and would not take a charge anymore (note that this occurred early in it's life - 60 cycles).

Has anybody else had issues with MacBook battery replacements acting like this and found a fix for the issue?

  • Are these batteries from a reputable Apple dealer or from an online marketplace? – Mokubai Nov 17 '16 at 18:28
  • @Mokubai Lizone sells non-oem MacBook batteries though Amazon and has very high ratings through that marketplace. – OAPJustin Nov 17 '16 at 18:35
  • Considering how easy it is to crowdsource or otherwise buy fake product reviews (techcrunch.com/2016/06/01/…) I would not necessarily trust them. If you bought one that didn't work as advertised then bought another then I'd be very suspect of them. Memory cards were a high value and easily faked product and rife on eBay, batteries are similarly easy to make look real with a bunch of cells that were near dead long before their manufacturer though of putting an "apple" badge on them. – Mokubai Nov 17 '16 at 18:53
  • @Mokubai Fortunately I had a warranty on my battery so when the first one broke they sent me a second for free. Do you know of any reputable places where I can buy a new battery from without breaking the bank? Here is a link to the Amazon page where you can find the battery that I am running currently: amazon.com/Lizone-Replacement-Battery-MacBook-10-95V/dp/… – OAPJustin Nov 17 '16 at 18:59
