The origional battery, after many cycles, would last less than an hour on a full charge. I replaced it with a Newer Technology NuPower Battery 74 Watt-Hour High Capacity for all Apple iBook G3/G4 Models 14". Battery performance has been excellent. But:

About This Mac - More Info… - Power - Battery Information: - First low level warning: No
I have drawn the battery down several times. Why does it say No?

When the old battery got very low there was an on screen warning that the computer was about to shut down due to lack of power. There is no such warning with the NuPower battery, it just shuts down with no warning. Why don't I get an on screen warning?
