    As they say, duct tape fixes everything.

    The battery on my TiBook has yet to fall out, but I definitely agree that it is a rather loose fit. I just got a replacement battery a few days ago and it's even more loose than the original. Nothing wrong with a little tape. TiBooks are far from the most visually appealing Macs anyway. :D

    where did you find your battery and how much was it? I have three batteries, all Apple ones and they dont hold a charge. I wish there was some case i could snap on the bottom
    maybe that would hold it in

    Besides tape is there any cases that would work. Do they still make plastic covers for the cases for PowerBooks still?
