TechTool Pro 9.6.2 and NewerTech battery 23 Apr 2018 18:02 #9601

So, I installed a new NewerTech battery into my 13-inch MacBook Pro unibody and, just for the sake of argument, ran the TechTool battery test. The Battery Check Results show Passed with a condition of Normal BUT, under failures, it lists Cell Imbalance, Discharge FET, Safety Over-Voltage, Externally Indicated Failure.

I thought that was kind of odd (the internal Apple indicators are that the battery is fine also) so I tested another identical computer with a slightly older NewerTech battery and it shows exactly the same results.

So, what's up with that?

Thanks.

I do not know whether there are problems with interpreting the results of the battery tests on third-party batteries. Please send a message to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thanks ... I guess I didn't realize that my log in name (email address) would be my posting name ... but I appreciate your pointing that out so quickly. I have sent off the email. Thanks again.

I am getting the same failures, although listed in slightly different order fwiw.
