Powerbook 150 Choke identification


Hi there! I bought an Powerbook 150 in very good condition, but unfortunately PRAM battery make a little mess on the logic board, destroying the L5 choke. Does anyone know what exactly this element is responsible for? It's close to the SCSI port, which I won't use here, so maybe it's enough to desolder it... Or maybe someone knows its parameters? I will repair and clean the remaining part of the board without any problems.FFC9316D-E0A7-41B0-985C-8F0315E29C1C.jpeg
