Got my new G4 PB battery from Apple today

It was 4 weeks almost to the day to get the replacement PB battery for my Jan. 2004 G4 PB. Not too bad!

Now I have to decide if I should keep the old one as a backup or send it back. Mine never got the least bit warm when charging so I think I will likely keep it for awhile. And yes, I did read the painfully long thread about this a week or so ago.

If it's a recall battery, you have to send it back. Otherwise they will charge you for it. That's according to the fine print on the return label for my MBP battery replacement.

I signed up on the second day of the announcement.

Many people didn't submit credit card info for the PB battery recall.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I believe the charge is something like $164 if you don't send it back. That's what mine said.

I don't recall doing that. Does it mean that I need to do it again?

I went back to the online form; I saw no apparent request for a credit card number.

Like RAMd®d I signed up at the beggining, actually a few days before I got the recall email from Apple. I was only asked for the Battery and PB serial #'s and mt address and it was done.

No mention of any penalty if not returned only a "Recommended Due Date" on the shipping label of 12/19/2006. It's a bit smudged at the end, maybe it says 12/19/2009?

The inside label does say cost if old battery not returned is $143.33, not sure if the could collect if they tried though. I quess they could hold my Apple Care hostage?

If they knew where to send the battery,
they know where to send a bill.
and a post-card reminder (if they really want it back)

Got mine yesterday for G3 iBook, but the iBook's battery was a replacement for the original, so it was covered under the recall.

Says if I don't return the battery, the charge is $121.11. It MUST be returned... doing that today.

Has somebody NOT send a battery back to Apple and actually been charged from Apple ?

I just got my replacement battery today, and I'm not planning on sending the old battery back.
