    PowerBook 1400c/166 battery percentage

    OS is 8.1 btw
  4. Hello. How can I see the PowerBook 1400c/166 battery percentage? I have a charging signal icon but no percentage. The Control Strip does not show any movement. I guess the battery is not charging ... or holding its charge?

    Powerbook 1400c power plug question

    It works - I can use a PowerBook G3 Lombard power plug on the PowerBook 1400c

    Powerbook 1400c power plug question

    That's good to know. Thank you.
  7. Hi. Can someone tell me if I can use a PowerBook G3 Lombard power plug on the PowerBook 1400c? From the pictures it looks like it will fit but I am unsure. I have the Lombard power cable/plug but not the 1400c yet so I cannot physically try. Thank you. Michael

    Battery clamshell iBook

    Thank you for the link. I haven't used this site. Being in Japan I did find this site https://www.rowa.co.jp/cabinet/product_list.cgi?F=&cat_select=%A5%A2%A5%C3%A5%D7%A5%EB&topdis=&key=&grp=&ganre=%A5%CE%A1%BC%A5%C8%A5%D1%A5%BD%A5%B3%A5%F3%A5%D0%A5%C3%A5%C6%A5%EA%A1%BC where it seems batteries are made in China (maybe to order? ) but then how safe are they (based on replica Apple iPhone chargers blowing up in the past)?

    Battery clamshell iBook

    Probably a silly question, but is it possible to still buy a replacement battery for the clamshell iBook? Thanks.

    Mac System 7 ... on an iPad.

    Many may think it an improvement.
  12. Saw this ... System 7 -- yes, Mac System 7 -- on an iPad.https://namedfork.net/minivmac/Wasn't sure which Forum to post I haven't tried it but it looks so cool FYI

    USB WiFi stick for clamshell iBook?

    I bought the TP_LINK mini router and it works a treat with my clamshell iBook. The set up was straightforward as per instructions. I am now connected to my WiFi via the LAN cable from iBook to mini router. Explorer works in OS 9.2. Netscape works in OSX 10.4.11. Of course not all web pages load but I only want to use my iBook for occasional work. I never noticed how snappy OS 9 was before. It is so responsive.

    USB WiFi stick for clamshell iBook?

    Terrific! I have just ordered the small WiFi bridge. I will let you know how I get along :-)
  15. Hi. Has anyone successfully used a USB WiFi stick for clamshell iBook? I obviously want to connect to the latest Airport Extreme but iBook Airport card is older connection (WEP?) but now I need WPA access. Maybe a USB WiFi would work? If so, which model please? Many thanks and love the new look Forum.
