Hi there,

i had my dead ibook battery replaced within the first 4 months.

now it is dead again (green light blinks, no charging...).

the ibooks warranty expired in december, but what about the new battery ?

did it's warranty expire with the ibooks warranty or does it come with its own one year warranty ?

TIA

You might want to call apple about that, but since you bought the battery seperately from the iBook, I would think the warranty would be different from the iBook.

If you didnt actually pay for the battery, and it was replaced under the terms of the warranty, then im pretty sure the new battery goes out of warranty when the iBook does. I had my iPod replaced like 9 months into the 1yr war. and then after 4 or 5 more months it seemed like it was broken again (luckily it wasnt), but apple would not replace it because the original 1yr war. had run out.

I asked the same question to Apple, when my battery was replaced under warranty. And yes, the new battery warranty runs out at the date when your original Ibook was purchased.

Although arguing with them that the problem wasn't solved with the first replacement might be a way to have them overlook that policy.

the official parts warranty is 90 days or the remainder of the warranty, whatever the latter would be.
