Pismo Batteries

Message #1 - Posted 2003/11/15 - Paul Owen

Anybody know a cheap source for Pismo Batteries in the UK?

Mine got drained whilst I was a away for a week and now won't take a charge. Tried all the battery reset tricks to no avail so I guess I need to buy a new battery.

Anybody found cheap deals?

Cheers
Paul

No such thing exists. You're looking at £135. Bummer.

I can't recall what a Pismo is exactly, but
<http://www.applemacparts.com/adapters_and_batteries.html> lists all the G3 PowerBook batteries for a fraction less than £135.

Still a bummer, I suspect.

Cheers,

No they don't; they're £128+VAT and delivery. £135 in other words.

Didn't mean to be all knowledge Nazi, its just I've been asked this very same question many many times.

The problem with laptops is batteries. Why are there soo many Powerbook G4 batteries suddenly arriving on Ebay? Because people are selling the duffers they have that hold precisely bugger all charge.

2nd hand batteries; waste of time unless you can physically see them and test them.
