My New iBook Battery's a Different Color!!! :(

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Has anybody else replaced their iBook battery only to discover that the new batteries have a different exterior color? The battery works a damned sight better than the old one, but it looks like ass. Is there a way to swap out the exterior cover on this thing?

    Yeah... That's because Apple changed the outer shell it used on the iBooks.

    The original white iBooks came with a clear shell over the white paint. Now they're shipping with out the clear plastic, but instead a white plastic, that ruins the elegance of the original design.

    My brother bought one of the last iBooks that had the clear plastic, and now if he decides to replace his battery at some point, it's going to look awful. I was worried about that. Ah well... what can ya do.
