Green light on, battery symbol says 'charging' but battery is draining

I replaced the battery which was really shot. New battery showed good charge and charged to 100% one time. After that, battery is discharging but green light shows on charger connecter and battery icon in menu bar shows ‘charging’. SMC and PRAM resets seem to have no effect.

Please see my 'answer' below for a photo related to this comment.

So some time after posting my problem with the 2011 Macbook Air, above, I was giving it a long last look before tossing it. Next to the battery connector is a package about 3/4 inch square. On one side it attaches to the logic board by two stout solder points. Looking very closely I discovered cracks across both of these connectors. Wiggling this package would intermittently cause the battery to actually begin charging. So — solved. A touch with the soldering iron and a tiny bit of additional solder and the Macbook is back in business.

I would add, this computer has been severely abused. Dropped, hurled, knocked around. The case is so badly bent you can practically hold it edge-on and see daylight out the other side. My wife thinks I should send it to Apple as a testimony to its toughness. No idea how much longer it may last, but for now it is repaired and working as it should. At least as regards charging the battery.

This photo shows the IC package which had the cracked solder joints, that is the two showing at the top side in this photo.. Please see my ‘comment’ above to my original question for more detail.

Sounds like board repair required. Most likely charging ic requires attention…

'Charging IC' -- is that something I could change out or repair without nutsy hassle?

Max Li, please see my comment to my original question, above. I did resolve this matter, as you will read. There were two broken solder connections from what I assume is a power management IC on the logic board. Resoldered, fixed.

Ok thanks for letting me know
