Tibook battery problem

Message #1 - Posted 2005/07/03 - Tom

I have a Tibook battery that lasts for around 3 hrs but it stays on 98% for the first 2, then goes down to 0% for the remaining hour or so until it dies.

Is there any way to reset it? I have seen one for G3 powerbooks but not for the G4.

Thanks
Tom

You need to "calibrate" it. Charge it up to 100%, then unplug and leave your TiBook on until the battery completely runs out, and it won't wake up anymore.

Then charge it back up to 100%.
