    My laptop is not charging. When the battery DOES show up in system profiler, this is some of the info I get:
    Manufacturer: GSA-1280
    Remaining power: 1939
    Full power: 4117
    Cycle: 76
    Condition: Normal
    Voltage (mA) : 11812

    The other times the system profiler will show the laptop has a battery, but shows zero's for all values.

    Is this battery issue or power supply?

    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.

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions:

    I an currently experiencing this issue as well, but mine is the original Apple battery. MacBook Pro, probably 5 years old.
