hey everyone, first time poster and new to the forums. i have a powerbook g4 (12") and for some reason the port on the computer where the batter charger plugs into got obstructed so that i can no longer put my charger into it to charge my battery. in short, this part needs to be replaced. the unfortunate part is that the screws on the back of the computer that hold the panel in place are totally bent and unscrewable. so im left with a situation where i cant repair this problem and i still need to use my computer and access my data. is there any external battery charger available for the g4? this would be ideal as i would be able to use my computer. alternatively i wanted to buy a used g4 online (ebay for instance) to charge my battery but they are too expensive to justify the prices. normally i would just buy a new computer but i hear that apple is coming out with an ultraportable laptop sometime first quarter of next year so i want to wait for that. any suggestions or help would be appreciated....im pretty desperate here. anyone know of a way to externally charge batteries???? thanks.
