    Hi guys,

    Just wondering if anybody may have experienced similar to the below, I have a genuine battery on order now no more fakes, but I have used fake batteries before and they have always worked.

    When I plug the replica battery in it charges... passes all tests, but doesn't boot the laptop on battery alone, no life nothing.


    Has anybody experienced this before and can they recommend a fix, please?

    Thanks all

    If anybody was wondering the issue was the fake batteries, super stranger behaviour but they were no good!

    Where did you order this fake battery from, so all of us can avoid it, please?

    amazon - it wasn't labelled as an official battery to be fair.
