Installed a replacement battery, but still says service recommended!
I just replaced my bloated old factory battery with a new iFixit replacement battery, but my computer is still saying Battery Service Recommended. I have tried both the battery calibration steps and an SMC reset (though i’m not sure I found the exact steps for my model) and it still hasn’t gone away, is there another way to reset it?
If not, will that affect the performance of my computer? I don’t know that I fully understand how it works, but my fear is that the system will continue to throttle itself down if it thinks the battery is still having the same issues.
Here is the Coconut Battery report, It looks like the computer still thinks its the original battery. I will also add that the new battery seems to be dying more quickly than it should, with very little workload.
