If the battery icon in the menu bar contains an X, either your Mac does not recognize the battery or the battery is not properly installed in your portable Mac.

If a battery is fully charged, but you still see an X: Your Mac may not recognize the battery. After you plug in your Mac and let the battery charge for five minutes, the battery should be recognized.
