    Last summer Apple issued a battery recall for specific PowerBook computers. Mine qualified for this, but I never received my battery. I imagine I should give Apple a call right about now. Did anyone else have to go through this?

    This is a good thing, after so long you may increase your battery life significantly...my dad was really bummed to find that his VAIO (now with 1 hour battery life) was not being recalled...a lot of people buy a new battery after such a time anyway...

    My wife and a co-worker had affected computers, and they ordered new batteries from Apple, who replaced them––as I recall––very efficiently, which is to say within two weeks of first contacting Apple to confirm they each had batteries that quallified for the recall.

    Are you saying that after a long while your battery life will increase? I don't get that...

    Interesting, I never got any notice of mine. I only got a confirmation saying it would be sent out within the next 8-12 weeks (that was in August)...

    Got mine no problem. New one arrived. Dropped the old on in the box and threw it in the mail.

    My PowerBook 12" battery qualified and I received my new battery without any issues.

    Got mine - ordered it the first day i could, i'd say it was about 8 weeks for it to arrive.

    Almost forgot to mail it back though! :rolleyes: I tried to call them for heat issues with it - it had it, just wasn't discolored. NEver got thru - just sent it in the stupid box.

    So ya call - and I think you can check online about it too!
