    I bought a 2009 Macbook Pro off of Craigslist for 200 dollars, it has 8Gb of ram with a 120Gb SSD, the only problem is that there was a small dent at the top(No big deal) and there was no battery. But works flawlessly plugged in.

    I went on amazon and bought a battery for it and installed it and it is recognizing the battery, it just always is at 0%. I took it to apple and they said they can't deal with a third party battery.

    WHAT DO I DO???

    I wouldn't trust or recommend any non-Apple battery, due to the number of problems reported with "knockoff" batteries. Also, there is no assurance that knockoff batteries have the same charging technology that Apple uses, involving the battery, the MagSafe adapter and the Mac's logic board.
