Any reccomendations on aftermarket vs. OEM 15in PB Battery replacements? My sisters 15in Alum. book needs a new battery.

Any suggestions would be great!

Somewhere, way before I got my PowerBook, I saw a 3rd party battery with 20% more capacity, maybe someone can find it/knows what I'm talking about?

NewerTechnology PowerBook and iBook batteries offer a higher rating that Apple's standard batteries.

but be wary there. I bought my new battery from them which offered 4400 MaH or whatever the acronym is while the apple battery was at 4200. Right out of the box, yes the numbers were right. But after the first charge, the NewerTech battery was down to 4200.

Did you caliberate the battery properly?

Just out of curiosity how many folks on this board have an old TiPB and have replaced the battery?
