    Hello, I have recently gotten 2 PowerPC computers, an iBook G4 and a PowerBook G4. When I got them, they did not come with chargers and I need chargers for them that way I can see if they work or not.
    Issue is, I am not quite sure if they take the same charger or not. Any help?

    Yes both take the charger with tip that looks like a headphone plug with a metal surround.

    And those can be either 45W or 65W. So OP needs one of the 65W types.

    There is no way to tell just by looking at the plug itself.

    I can confirm both will work on the same silver PBG4 Titanium plug as well.

    Just to confuse things; The first two revisions of iBook G4s shipped with a 45w adapter and the last two shipped with 65w adapters.

    However they all use the same battery... So, either will be fine. The 65w would be ideal, but if you already have the 45w adapter then that will work just fine.
