    Oh man! My battery is draining when the cord is plugged in. It is now only at 70%! What is wrong? Is there a way I can chat with a technician or something?

    Well what are you doing with your computer anyways? You can also get apple care's number from Apple's website they might want you to take it to a genius bar at the apple store to get it checked out. :)

    I want to call them but I bought this in September and so it is out of the 3 months period. My computer's plugged in and everything. When I click on the icon (charged icon) it says battery is not charging, power source: power adapter, but only 69%.

    Press the button on the bottom and see what it says. Also, disconnect from the charger and check what it says. It may just be reading the battery incorrectly.

    so now basically plugging and unplugging just changes the "half-filled" battery icon to the "cord" icon. ugh!

    But the "cord" icon means, that the battery is charging, normally of course.

    So doesn't it charge then, even with the "cord" icon being visible?

    The thing is it said battery not charging. I just shut down and restarted. Seems to have fixed everything. I wonder if I should bring this up with apple?

    I wouldn't bother, unless it actually affected how full the battery could charge. But it looks like it's fixed now, so I wouldn't worry about it. :)
