    I have a MB Aluminium Unibody and after I changed my HDD and RAM I've got this "Battery Service" on my battery.

    What can I do except deliver it and make them test it?

    If you want to keep your warranty...that's pretty much it.

    Earlier today I posted a thread that I got the "Battery service" sign when I press on the the battery in the menu bar. But now when I do it its gone. I've restarted the machine just to see if that was the problem, but its still gone. Ive plugged and uplugged the cable many times and still gone.

    Does that mean that the problem is gone aswell?

    I got a new battery for my MacBook Aluminium today, and I've had it in the mac for 10 minutes and its connected to the power adapter. But its still on 0%. It hasent gone up a bit.

    Is this good, like the battery can have alot of hours without more power or a bad thing that the battery doesn't fit in my MacBook?

    Ok it turned into 1% right now! Is that a good sign?

    I'm currently charing my new MacBook Battery for the first time. I accidentaly pluged out the MagSafe when it was on 85% or so and plugged it back in within 1 minute.
    Everything is working fine, and its on 91% now and still going up, but was this bad? Was this something I really shouldn't do?

    No, that's perfectly fine. That's why the MagSafe connector was made. You didn't do anything bad to your battery.
