12" Powerbook battery

Message #1 - Posted 2004/10/04 - Ian McCall

Going to buy one - is it worth looking around for cheaper prices, or is this a commodity item I may as well order from Apple?

Cheers,
Ian

http://www.gogo-power.co.uk/ got me a cheaper TiBoko battery. Whether Cheaper!=Better is to be found out, although I did geta good five-six hours of life from it, which the original never did.

Not OEM but new, cheap and bought through ebay with no problems at all.

Good link. Unfortunately no 12" batteries at the moment, but I'll keep it bookmarked I think. http://makeashorterlink.com/?V28022279, for the sake of the link-wrap impaired.

Cheers,

Good price but it's not the original Apple battery for the new PB, are they reliable/safe?
I read something about copied mobile phone batteried blowing up, don't want the same thing happen to my PBs...
