The Lithium Ion (Lilon) batteries used for the PowerBook G3 Series (Bronze Keyboard) are not compatible with any earlier PowerBooks, including others in the PowerBook G3 Series. The connector is physically different, and the battery is thinner than previous batteries.
Lilon batteries have battery level indicator lights that tell whether the battery is fully charged, three-fourths charged, one-half charged, one-fourth charged, or empty. To check the battery charge, press the status button located next to the status lights. The battery charges whenever the external AC adapter is connected.
If the battery lights blink, there is a problem with the battery. If only one light blinks, the battery is fully depleted and needs to be recharged.
