Question: Battery Indicator on Mac OS 9

Hello,


I recently purchased an iBook G3 Clamshell and I was thinking about replacing or fixing the battery for it. It is running Mac OS 9 and I need help with understanding the Mac OS battery meter as I have used Mac OS X for the majority of my time using Macs and have gotten used to the simple percentage that Mac OS X gives you. I would greatly appreciate a guide of some sort so I can fully understand the battery indicator for Mac OS 9.


Thanks!

iBook G3 Clamshell-OTHER, Mac OS 9.2.x

Answer:
Answer:

The battery indicator is usually shown through a control strip, and I think it is also available via a Control Panel relating to Energy Saver. Both are their own modules in the System Folder subfolder of the relevant name.


The meter is not precise, nor has it ever been.
