Hey all, Just got my new Ibook and bought a stick of 512MB RAM. When I unlatched the lock for the battery, the battery wouldn't come out. So after about an hour of playing with it I had to basically pry it out with a guitar pick and then eventually my hand. It was a terrible experience since my baby is only couple weeks old. Anyways I ended up practically ripping the casing of the battery off and exposing the cells. I didn't know if exposing the cells to air was a big deal or not. Everything seems to be working fine and I got xbattery running and my capacities and voltages seem to be fine. I sanded the battery where it got caught. Anways I'm glad the ibook made it through the ordeal.
