Loc: The Wizard's Balcony
Has anyone had experience with these? The battery on my iBook is getting to the point of being just about useless, so it's time for a replacement. I found this place, which is a little cheaper than the Apple Store.<br><br>But is it worth it?<br><br>If the battery really will last longer than the Apple one, that would be totally gnarly. But if that edge only lasts about a month before the battery starts to head toward suck-ville, well, I'll just go with Apple.<br><br>
NewerTech seems to be the main 3rd party supplier of batteries that most people go to for a replacement. <br>There can be some downsides though. I ordered 1 for my 12" Al and the battery does not separate from the batterys case lid, which is part of the bottom of the puters case. As a result.... the material isn't the same as Apples Aluminum, and scratched very easily. Also, it doesn't have the LEDs to let you know how much charge is left. <br>The run-time didn't seem any better than a standard Apple-issued battery.<br>If I were to do it again.... I would buy an Apple replacement.<br><br>
