AL PB are autosensing power-wise. You can put an Apple UK plug onto the US powerbrick and it will work

As far as your Ti battery and powerbrick go, you'll need to check whether they are the same capacity and wattage. I seem to recall that there was a difference between them.

With out a doubt it will work. The Bricks are auto-sensing, so as long as You use an Apple AC/DC Brick, you'll be fine. You may have to buy a new Cord (or the international connection kit, which included duck-end connectors for major pin-outs).

The TiBook battery will not fit in the AlBook. If you want a second battery for the AlBook, you will have to buy it.
