    I just got the replacement battery from Ebay seller from China claiming it is the genuine battery. I am using it right now...when I plug the ac connector it doesn't turn red to show me that it is charging or something also the battery icon is showing an X ...but the battery is still running....I do not know what do to?
    I paid $60 for it...Please

    Any suggestions?

    That's why I prefer buying Apple products only from Apple. YMMV.

    Should I return the battery? or should I just use it like this with the green light as the indicator of battery charge left time?

    Of course, Apple manufactures them! They have to have batteries for warranty work, as well as users who want to buy replacements.
