    Battery or adapter
    I'm having an issue that I'm not sure if is the battery or the adapter, first i have a macbook pro 13" early 2011, running lion, anyways what happens is sometimes when i plug in the battery charger, it won't charge unless i for lack of a better word, wiggle it,then the led light on the adapter turns on,took it to the apple store and i was given a new adapter,but is still doing it,I'm not sure what else to do here,is it the battery?

    No, not the battery. It's likely the connector itself. Take it back to the Apple store and show them what happens. If it is the connector, it will have to be replaced or they may just give you a new machine since yours is new.

    Check to make sure the connections are clean as well. At the power adapter connection/plug...and the power "port" on the computer. I usually like to use an old dry tooth brush to lightly clean it.
