    I have an iBook G4 (mid 2005) and the charger has broken (third one!!).

    Apple don't have the replacement part. Does anyone have a recommendation for a durable replacement from another company?

    I know Macally makes chargers for the iBooks. I'm not sure where to buy them since you are in the UK. Maybe a google search could help to find a supplier there?

    Thanks. It seems I can buy the Macally one from Amazon in the UK, but the reviews on the Amazon US site contain a number of pretty negative comments.


    Further research reveals that the Macally charger doesn't work with iBook G4.

    Strange, the online AppleStore still sells the Apple Portable Power Adapter – 65 W, which is for iBook and PowerBook, in the Dutch store. Ships within 24H. I checked the UK store and they don't have them.

    My iBook G4 has also gone through a fair few chargers. The last we bought was shipping from the UK and was really cheap (just a Google Shopping search) but the problem is, it's rubbish. If it looks plastically, avoid it.

    Go for a reputable brand or an Apple one from OWC or Macally maybe. In UK, try www.2ndchancepc.co.uk too.

    I have a macally one, which I use with my ibook G4 12" 800Mhz. It has worked fine since the apple one fritzed out. It says PS-AC4-UK on it, and looks like http://www.amazon.co.uk/Power-Adapt...6?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1256468511&sr=8-6 it seems there's a newer one now though, which I guess you looked at? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Macally-AC-...1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1256468511&sr=8-1

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    I tried 2ndchancepc. They have a BTI charger. And it's UGLY!! But I guess I don't have many options and will have to compromise.


    On the Macally website it says PS-AC4 only works with iBook G3 and PowerBook G4 now.
