Hello, I recently picked up a PowerBook 520 on eBay. It has 12mb of ram, and a working 320mb hard drive. It also came with two batteries. They showed no voltage, but they were not corroded, at least externally. Is there a way I can attempt to charge the batteries? They are obviously not detected.

Thanks

Well, what do you know. I used battery update on one and it came back to life!
