    My iBook is almost 3 years old and I think the battery is just dead. It holds a charge of maybe 20 minutes max and it's gotten to the point where I'm just gonna give in a buy a new batterry.

    Question is: Can I just buy any "14" iBook G4" batterry off of eBay or any site other than from Apple direct(retails $129)? Should I be looking a particular model number for the battery (A1080) or the laptop? I see batterries selling for $80 on eBay....
    have u guys done this? I dont want to end up with something that won't work just because I bought it at a non-Apple site...

    Advice pl?

    Does it matter if I get the 60Watt-Hour batterry or the 74 Watt-Hour batterry?
    There's a $30 price difference......
    If they both work on my iBook I would obviously go for the cheaper one...

    I guess it only makes a difference if you care about battery-life.... I would!

    did you buy from them?

    i'm looking to do the same (i.e. replace my rapidly failing iBook G4 battery). did you buy from this reseller? did it work out?

    thanks,
    erik
