    I'm buying a PowerBook G4 Titanium off of eBay and I have a question about the power supply. I have a iBook G3 Clamshell Powersupply. Will that work with the PowerBook Titanium 400MHz

    The important thing is the volts, IIRC powerbooks want 24V but can run on less (I know we gave one 19.5, I think it could charge too). For watts, you just want to make sure your adapter can provide >= the watts the powerbook wants, otherwise it might not be able to charge. You'll have to look up what the powerbook model you are interested in needs for wattage.

    amps and volts are important,

    you want to ensure you match or better the amps and volts you do not want to exceed the required voltage or anything 5% or less.

    the wattage of the adapter can be calculated by taking the amps and multiplying them by the voltage.

    hope this helps.

    The PowerBook G4 Titanium has to be the first generation as it's 400MHz. My Powersupply brick reads: Replacement AC Adapter for Apple Notebook. Model No: M4328. Caution: For use with ICE 950 Products. AC Input:100-240V, 1.0A ADP-36KB, Made in China , 200501012001,

    Input: AC 100-240V , 50-60Hz 65-115 VA
    Output: 24V 1.875A
