    Does anyone know a source for PRAM batteries for the Pismo or Lombard? My Pismo is working very nicely with a new SSD replacing the noisy HD, but the PRAM battery won't retain the date/time. I can't find a replacement at the usual suspects (eBay, Amazon, NewerTech, etc.), and I don't have the skills to build a new one.

    Any information will be gratefully received.

    Thanks. That was one of the places I looked at. If you try to buy, they tell you "out of stock." Still looking!

    It turns out there's hope. The eBay seller dasherdeals has already built some batteries for other PowerBook models, and he tells me that he'll start building them for Pismo/Lombard before too long. If you subscribe to his store (i.e. add it to your eBay feed) you'll see them when they're ready.

    I've made a PowerBook pram battery tutorial.
    Still no time to translate it into English - it's in German. But it includes many pictures and links:
