Performa 6320CD PRAM battery

Message #1 - Posted 2004/11/27 - aleric_breton

I've given my old Performa 6320CD to my Nephew but I forgot to replace the PRAM battery before he took it hundreds of miles away. I remember that its a strange type - one I've never seen before: similar shape but a bit bigger than an oxo cube with a red/black fly lead that plugs into the motheboard. The battery is stuck to the motherboard with velcro!

Could someone tell me what type of battery to look for, or better still, contact details for a place selling them.

Any help gratefully received.

Al.

This series of machines used a 4.5v alkaline battery, the original was a Rayovac 840, 4.5V Alkaline battery. OWC has them reasonably priced- http://eshop.macsales.com/Catalog_Item.cfm?ID=2525&Item=RAYMAC45V as do many other online Mac suppliers.
You may also have noticed that it uses the World's Strongest Velcro (at least it was in my old Quadra 630).
