Battery replacement for 12" I-book

Message #1 - Posted 2006/02/01 - Gabriel Lucero

Mine won't hold a charge anymore. 600 MHz Power PC G3 3 or 4 years old so it's due. I need to know what would be the best replacement and from where. Thank you.

Buy the NuPower from MacSales.com. I've bought two from them, and have been very pleased. I bought the extra capacity, and love the extended working time.

Be sure to follow the instructions, and drain and charge the new battery at least 5 times. Also, the NuPower batteries are new units. I have read of some people buying "new" batteries that were actually unused batteries from when your laptop was first made. IOW, the "new" battery you are buying has been sitting on a shelf for 3-4 years. This is *not* good for batteries.
