Hey gang. I've read in a few places that there is a process to breaking in a new battery on these machines, so I wanted to know if I had the right idea, or if I am missing something. My experience is that all Li-Ion batteries need a decent first cycle in order to be broken in. In other words, charge it up, and then drain it down, and then charge it back up again, and you should be good from there on out. Is there anything else necessary to calibrate the battery which is specific to the iBook Clamshell? Wanted to ask before I throw down the cash for a new battery. I want to get the 75 watt-hour NewerTech one which should theoretically give me battery life in the moderate netbook range. (5-7 hours). I get two and a half hours on the original cell (CoconutBattery says it's got 61% health), which I recently found out is actually as old as the laptop.
