10.2.8 battery weirdness on TiBook G4 800MHz

Message #1 - Posted 2003/09/29 - huchal

I was probably a bit too quick off the mark downloading & upgrading to 10.2.8. My battery life appears to have halved. Anybody think this mught be permanent or will it just go away with a new update?

Thanks,

H

It is hard to imagine how your battery could have been permanently harmed. It would be a safe bet that it will be fixed with son-of-10.2.8.

I'm in the same boat. 10.2.8 is running here. I'm nervously awaiting the fixed version. I'm being very conscientious about backups ;-)

Same thing seems to have happened to my iBook. I expect it'll get fixed in the upgrade.

I suppose it _could_ be harmed if new data is sent to the circuitry within the battery, but since I know shag-all about batteries, I'm likely wrong.

I don't see how it can be permanent either, but MacFixit claims there is precedent for permanent damage. I can't look at the detailed link because my macfixit "pro" subscription has run out. Can anyone look and report on what the precedent was with 10.2.4?
