View Full Version : iBook battery question

Nov 16, 2004, 05:17 PM
I recently had to remove the battery to install a ram upgrade in my 12" 1.2 ghz ibook..the manual says upon reinserting the battery, you should lightly press down the battery until the latches lock it into place. My battery does not lock in its set position. I have to hold the thing down as I turn the latch back to the lock position. This is fine with me but if my battery is supposed to click into place I want to know in case my 'book's latches are defective.

Uhh..i just took out my battery and put it back in and it didn't click or lock into place. I had to hold it in and turn the latch.

You have to hold it, and then turn the lock.

You put the "non connector" end in first, and then the part closest to the lock.

You iBook is not defective.
