battery for 12inch powerbook

Message #1 - Posted 2007/08/25 - roger merriman

okay after 4and a half years and over 1500 load cycles the battery is fairly knackered it doesn't tend to last much below 50%

are any of the copies any good? it's my main machine so would be nice for it to be moble again.

Well, I got a replacement off ebay for my old tibook, and that was fine, although the colour was a bit different and it wasn't totally flush. Sab got one for the 12" powerbook and it really didn't fit well and died quickly. However the guy replaced it and the second one wasn't bad at all.
