Hi all I hope you can help me. I have recently purchased a white Ibook G4 the problem I have is that the battery hangs down (about a 3m gap).

It runs fine on the mains adapter but when I take the adapter off it just clicks off.

The battery itself is fine because if I push it flush with my fingers it connects with the terminals and is fine but I cant hold my battery in place everytime I want a laptop

So I am stuck with a desktop at the moment

Is there a fix for this maybe new battery or new battery latch?

Has anyone else came across this problem and how did you manage to fix it.

Thanks in advance.

No not at all, and I have had 2 iBook G4's, neither of which had the problem to this extent.
The batteries on both were never dead flush with the case though.
I reckon you could tighten the catch if you take the base off of the iBook and get to the underside. One thing to look at, does the battery eject mechanism work properly. That is to say does the battery spring out when you turn it? In the battery slot there are 2 small springs on the left as you look at it. Are they in place?
