I've got an ibook G4 and the battery life is all of a sudden really terrible. I got it about a year ago and the battery was always about 3 hours until about a month ago when it suddenly dropped to about half of that. It has gotten worse in the last month and now i am lucky to get 30-40 minutes out of it.

try coconutbattery to see how "healthy" it is. calibrating it might be a good idea too...

i actually can't use coconutbattery, because i am still running 10.3. i have also already calibrated the battery and that hasn't helped
