For Apple laptop owners:
Scroll down the above web page and ownload the Beta widget if you are running Tiger – if you don’t you can get the regular version. Both are free.
My laptop battery is sucking and I just ordered a new one. According to the Coconut Battery Widget my old battery is on Load Cycle 652 and batteries have a lifetime of 300-500 loadcycles. In other words: no wonder!!
You can order a replacement battery by Newer Tech at OWC. Each new battery includes a label to return your old battery for proper recycling or disposal. They are also Mercury-free.
