Return to the age of Battery

Battering RamApple's doing a iBook G4 and PowerBook G4 battery recall. I just checked and my battery's serial number is on the list. This means that I'll get a nice new battery (in 4 to 6 weeks). The process for getting a replacement was really easy, so kudos to Apple for that. In fact, it seems like it could be abused - adding 1 to my serial numbers validated, meaning I could have gotten them to send me another battery for my non-existent other computer (of course, you have to provide a valid mailing address to them).

My powerbook only ever gets really hot when the battery is re-charging. I wonder if the replacement will be any different.

(Apple also has a separate battery recall for 15-inch MacBook Pros, and Dell has a massive battery recall going on too)

thanks for the heads-up. This will be my second free "safer than the last one" battery for the same computer. Why is it so hard to make batteries right the first (or second!) time?

The Li-Fiber cell is completely safe and with $1 million the company can produce enough cells to prove that it has a laptop battery that is not only completely safe but also outperforms all existing laptop batteries. The 2006 massive recall by DELL, Apple, IBM, Toshiba and Lenovo of over 7 million notebook computer batteries made by Sony would be a thing of the past. Contact me Edward Anderson at TRU Group Inc if you have $1 million to invest.

If you are not going to use laptop for few days, then discharge the battery fully and disconnect it.
