Ever since one of Apple’s Jaguar update (I think it was 10.2.6) zapped my PowerBook’s battery life from 3+ hours to just under 1:30+, my PowerBook has more or less tethered to the power socket. More so for the last few months when the battery lasts no longer than 40 minutes!
Well no longer as I received in the mail a pretty much brand new battery today, purchased on eBay for less than $35! Now I am happily composing this post untethered and the battery indicator reads 3:01 remaining, with 30 minutes usage already!
Long live eBay!
