Probably...but I'm surprised at how fast some of the batteries run out. I still have the IIvx from '93 and the battery in that thing is still going...

I guess battery is the first thing to try...
G4/450, T-bird 1.05GHz, iBook 500, iBook 233...4 different machines, 4 different OSes...(9, 2k, X.1, YDL2.2 respectively) PiA to maintain...

hey it happens, not all batteries are created equally even if from the very same manufacturer... so many variables here, like how long had the battery been sitting in stock before being put in a Mac and how was the battery stored at the manufacturer's warehouse, and hey it could have been a lemon battery (excuse the small joke) right off the assembly line
