When I got my 500mhz iBook back in July, the battery held a good 3 hour charge, and coconut battery reported 60% remaining life.
now, I noticed as of late I can only get an hour out of it if I shut the wifi off and turn the brightness all the way down. I checked coconutbattery, and it says I only have 1000mah or so left, and the capacity is now down to only 25%!!
How could the battery have lost so much charge in only 3 months? when I charge it up, as soon as the light turns green, I unplug it.
I have only upped the RAM to 576mb, added an airport card, and upped the HD to 80gb. Could any of those hardware changes have killed the battery?
Is there any way to get it back? I know with the wallstreet, you could reset it's microprocessor, and let it recalibrate it's self. Anything simmilar for my iBook? Or is a new battery in order?
