If you have a “Lombard” or “Pismo” era PowerBook G3 that isn’t holding its battery charge like it used to, Newer Technology Inc. and Other World Computing have teamed up to produce a new
replacement battery, compatible with both systems. The 7200mAh Lithium-Ion battery offers 50 percent more capacity than Apple’s stock batteries and costs US$159.95. Lombard and Pismo PowerBook G3s are differentiated from older Wall Street-era systems by their bronze-colored keyboards. Pismo PowerBooks also feature native FireWire interfaces. The new 7200mAh battery complements a line that also includes 6600mAh and 5400mAh batteries also compatible with Pismo and Lombard systems.
