View Full Version : Swapping PowerBook Battery Skin?

Apr 23, 2013, 06:18 PM
Back when I bought an official Apple battery for my iBook (Late 2001), the outer plastic was the newer solid-white style. So I peeled off the outer plastic from the old transparent-over-white style battery and swapped them around, all went well.

Now I've just bought a 3rd-party replacement battery for my PowerBook G4 (Gigabit Ethernet), its bottom outer surface is covered with a lame-looking-silver-sticker, instead of the nice-looking-silver-sticker/actual-layer-of-titanium that's on the official Apple battery.

My question is; has anyone peeled the skin off an Apple PowerBook battery and used it to replace that of a 3rd-party battery? If you have, how did you remove both skins? And what did you use to reattach it?
