    Need a batery for a G3 Powerbook "Lombard" edition... Assuming the same batery as the ever-popular "Pismo"

    What is a good price for a new one? And where to buy it? On ebay they list for around $150- this seems high to me... any thoughts?

    I bought a new battery for my Pismo from OWC. I think it was about $140. Gives me over 4 and a half hours working time. A nice upgrade from the 15 minutes I was getting from my old battery.

    Here's a link:

    You can also find them used on eBay for around $80 - $100.
