I don't think you can find an original Apple iBook battery for the original iBooks anymore. Apple cleared out its stock about a year and a half ago. Because of the shelf life issues, the retail sellers who got those sold them off at discounts last year and pretty much cleared out the stock. What you can get now, and have a chance of not getting a bad one, are new ones made by BTI and another battery maker. They are priced in the $130-140 range for a list price. Best price I could find on Shopper.com was $103 plus shipping from eTechWarehouse.

P.S. I don't recall which other battery maker had a listing for a replacement battery, just came across it a couple months ago.

thanks for the info
