Hi,

Does anyone know if I can use my extra PowerBook G4 (1Ghz Titanium) power adapter on my 3400c?

Thanks!

It shouldn't fit -- the plugs are different. The wattage and voltage are fine, though.

Madsonline sells a converter to go the OTHER way, very useful. Griffin Tech may be able to sell you something that would work, but you might have to call them.
He can be fixed -- you can't.

Thanks, you are right -- I didn't look close enough since they do appear similar.

Its no big deal, I've got an adapter, was just wondering if I could use my extra one interchangeably.

The wattage and voltage is right. If the titanium adapter puts out too much wattage, the 3400 just won't use it. I used to use my Pismo power brick, and my iBook hockey puck, with my 1400 all the time. With the right plug, they'll run my 5300 too (I keep it for old time's sake).
