Hello All,

I recently purchased an old Powerbook G4 since my iBook G4 recently died on me (After 5+ years). I'm using the Powerbook for a temp computer until Arrandale comes out on the next revision of the macbook/macbook pro.

My question is can I use my iBook 45W adapter to power the Powerbook? I believe the original adapters for the Powerbooks were 65W. If it is possible are there any fire hazards of the power brick overheating or shorting out the Powerbook?

Thanks for any feedback!

I think you can use it it will just charge very slowly, but I don't think there will be other problems.

I'm currently relying on an iBook power adapter (45 W) to operate as well as charge and run my PowerBook G4. I did some research on this in advance of relying on this adapter and came upon reliable information that said the match would operate fine.
