NewerTech battery for PB
Other World Computing (OWC) and Newer Technology today introduced the newest edition to its NuPower high capacity battery: the new 55 Watt Hour rated replacement battery for the 12-inch PowerBook G4 provides up to 17 percent more run time capacity than Apple factory-shipped batteries. The extreme high capacity is achieved using revolutionary cells only just released on the market and not available through any other manufacturer in units of comparable capacity and quality, according to the release. "PowerBook owners want the highest capacity run times imaginable that they can only get from NewerTech NuPower batteries," said Larry O'Connor, President of NewerTech. "The longer lifespan of the new NewerTech NuPower G4 12" Aluminum PowerBook batteries translate into both long term economical and environmental savings. It's a guaranteed win-win." It is available for $150 and ships with a one-year NewerTech warranty. A 53.3 Watt Hour model is available for $140.
