Charge me up

December 9th, 2003 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Is it really true that there are no external chargers for Apple’s G4 PowerBooks?

I found an external charger for the iBook, but nothing for the Powerbook. What’s with the dearth of chargers?

It seems power is the weak spot for Mac laptops. My old Wallstreet has finally become unusable because it won’t recognize the power adapter unless I wiggle the connector around into the right spot. Of course, it moves at some point, and the machine turns off. The battery went lifeless a long time ago.

Oddly, Conny’sWho is Conny? iBook is more or less in the same state. Won’t recoginize the battery, and is very fussy about the power adapter connection (though not as bad as my laptop.) Her laptop has the added special feature of eating power adapters. Every two or three months, it overheats the power adapter into lifelessness. We’ve bought about 5 adapters so far.

I’m thinking the charging circuit is bad, but at this point, I don’t want to sink any money into this cursed iBook. Ideally I’d like to just replace the whole unit , especially with one that is capable of playing Ghost Master. Conny View definition in a new window’s laptop is too old to run it.

We need a game that’s fun to play in bed. On the computer, that is. It’s a geek thing.
