    The original battery of my iBook holds no juice at all, so I'd like to purchase a replacement. Mine says "A1080, 14.4V, 5200mAh." However, all of the A1080 batteries that I see on line say 4400mAh!!:eek: Are we supposed to replace 5200mAh battery with 4400mAh one? What effect does this have? Or is my iBook totally outdated and cannot get a replacement battery? Thank you for your help!

    The 5200mAh just refers to the amount of juice inside it. If the 5200mAh battery will work with your iBook model, get it so your battery charge will last longer.

    The problem is that I cannot find 5200mAh

    Thank you for your post. My problem is that I haven't found a single A1080 replacement battery that is 5200mAh. Are you saying that I can use 4400mAh without any problem but that it would last less compared to my original one?:confused:
