    I want to start bringing my PowerBook G4 to school. And to do so, I will need to get a battery.

    I don't want to grab a battery for 90-120, that's pretty much what I paid for my G4. I know to stay away from those cheap ones on eBay otherwise this will happen:

    So what would you guys recommend? I just need a battery that will last me at least an hour.

    Thanks

    I've been using a $15 battery Mayday Technologies Chinese battery for over a year now and it's fine. No fires or other catastrophes and it has held up pretty well in terms of battery life.

    I picked up this battery off eBay for $15, and it's been working like a champ. I was surprised at the price but hey, how wrong can you go for $15?

    Those are for the 12", I bought a cheap 13$ for my DLSD and it works, lasts like an hour. The NewerTech batteries are way too expensive, so buying a cheap battery is a better choice as you can replace it if it dies
