I'm using an iGo Juice 70 power adapter for my iBook and I've noticed something that I was a little worried about. I bought my iBook refurb about 2 weeks ago and when it arrived the Apple power cord was damaged, pin was missing and the ring was messed up bad. I explained that to the company and the new adapter should be getting here Tuesday. For the time being I picked up the iGo because I travel a bit plus I was desperate to make sure the iBook was working. Anyway, I found that I have to position the power cord a certain way to get a good connection for the computer to charge and run on AC power. I have to turn the piece that connects to the computer until I see the charging icon or the little plug icon. I was thinking that may just be because it is a universal charger and not the OEM Apple one. Even just opening the CD tray will sometimes move it enough to stop charging. When it does make a connection it does charge the battery, but you have to hit that "sweet spot" for it to work. Think having the original Apple charger will help or could this be a bigger issue?
