Random shutdonws after battery replacement
Hey guys, so i got a battery from iFixit and soon after i replaced it i began to get random shutdowns, the mac was running incredibly slow.
I noticed when it started to get really sluggish if i press the button for the battery indicator (the one on the side) it showed like there is no battery (no lights lit green)
Had to reset the SMC in order for it to work properly again.
So i did an SMC & PRAM Reset, tried to charge it to 100% and drain it until 0% a few times but to no avail.
So i messaged them and they sent me another one (the one i got might be defective)
The second one gets here, i replace it and it got even worse, way worse… every 10-20 min. i get shutdowns.
So luckily i kept my original battery which is at 1300 cycles and swapped it just to make sure my mac runs fine with it.
Three days have passed since and i have no issues.
Im running Mojave (last update)
A Data SSD + WD Black
16GB Ram 1333MHz (2 diff sticks)
