Question about Apple 12" iBook G3 700Mhz with 256 RAM, 20GB CD Drive (p/n IBG3-700-CD)-Linited Supply PC Notebook
Don't waste your time replacing (only) the bad cells in a laptop battery. The older ("good") ones will be weaker, and will expire next.. quickly, and likely damage the new ones.
All cells must be replaced NEW with equal/same milliamp ratings.
That is true, and useful in SOME laptops, but unfortunately, NOT yours!
Apple uses a small logic circuit in its batteries that "remembers" when it was made, how long it has been used, and when it "died". And even with new cells, this circuit will prevent the iBook from "recognizing" the battery.
Sorry to bear bad news. Dispose of the battery in a safe place (not an incinerator)
