Battery Exchange Program
iBook G4 and PowerBook G4
27th Aug 2006


Apple has determined that certain lithium-ion batteries containing cells 
manufactured by Sony Corporation of Japan pose a safety risk that may 
result in overheating under rare circumstances.

The affected batteries were sold worldwide from October 2003 through 
August 2006 for use with the following notebook computers: 12-inch iBook 
G4, 12-inch PowerBook G4 and 15-inch PowerBook G4.

Apple is voluntarily recalling the affected batteries and has initiated a 
worldwide exchange program to provide eligible customers with a new 
replacement battery, free of charge. 

Identifying your battery

Please use the chart to identify the battery model and serial numbers 
that apply to your iBook or PowerBook. If the first 5 digits of your 
battery’s 12-digit serial number fall within the noted ranges, please 
order a replacement battery immediately. 

To view the model and serial numbers labeled on the bottom of the 
battery, you must remove the battery from the computer. The battery 
serial number is printed in black or dark grey lettering beneath a 
barcode ..
