IBOOK Battery for Tangerine Ibook

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I have a tangerine Ibook(rev.a), and it is not keeping power, I can get max an hour use. I have fully drained it, zapped the p-ram, reset the power settings(with the paperclip),ect.. anyone know any places that sell replacement batteries..(I had to get the powersupply replaced recently too, that one died near the end of the plug(like happens to most people).

    I'll buy your iBook for $45.

    Here is a new one.. got a new battery figuring it was a battery problem, but having the same problem, the battery won't hold a charge. even the new one, it said it had 3 hours of juice left, then suddenly drops into low power mode then goes to sleep. reseting the power management,zapping pram doesn't change anything.. <img src="graemlins/bugeye.gif" border="0" alt="[Skeptical]" />

    Hmmm... you might be screwed. Getting macs fixed costs the bloody earth. Sounds like maybe the PM unit. Dig around the web for .pdf's for apple service repair manuals...

    That helped tons when my PBG3 when sketchy.
