A quick Mac battery replacement
I attempted to power up my RackMac TZ today after not using it for several months. The system was dead - nothing. Disappointed, I removed the battery for inspection:
1.52v was definitely low for this 4.5v battery, and certainly low enough to prevent the computer from booting up. Nonetheless, I still wondered about the potential for other problems and was loathe to order an expensive replacement battery that would take days to get here.
I took the velcro off the old battery and glued it to the back of my new holder.
The official battery for these units is supposed to last several years. I have no idea how these AA's will do long-term, but I'll report back when they die.
