    So, my factory 13'' MB battery wouldn't hold a charge after about 3 years.

    I bought a replacement from Amazon recently, which worked fine for the first two weeks, but now the battery is no longer detected anymore. The battery icon shows up as an "x".

    Anyone have this problem before?

    The only times I've seen it is when the battery is completely dead (possible bad cells, check to see if the battery is bulging) or if there is any kind of liquid damage.

    take it to an apple store, sounds like an issue with your MB and not the battery

    there might be a problem with your charger or something internal with your laptop its not always the battery.... i had a similar problem with my dell it wasnt the charger but it was internal.... costs money to fix it though...
