Battery for a Mac Plus

by SeanKennedy » Tue Sep 27, 2016 5:56 am

Ok - due to the peculiarities of YouShop and shipping (perfectly safe alkaline non-lithium :x ) batteries, I have a 4.5v Mac Plus battery in limbo which I can forward to one of our US based people. If no takers, I'll ask Youshop to bin it.

Now I know how the wife felt when NZ Couriers wouldn't deliver her Dior "dangerous goods" from StrawberryNet.

Bah!

Really they wont ship standard Alkaline batteries? Thats a pain. I have some old Macs with the strange half sized aa batteries. Im thinking of rigging them all for external battery mounts so theres never ever any future risk of a battery being forgotten about and corroding. I think with all these old computers its better to externalize the cmos batteries unless you use them a lot. Just my opinion of course.

I can't quite decide you're either dealing with the customer service equivalent of a shaved ape, or some kind of opportunistic shakedown for a "specialist" type of shipping. Did they make an "offer" (you can't refuse) of this?
"dsakey" on trademe. Apple II's are my thing.

Oh they were happy to send it to an address in the US, or to return to the supplier. Just didn't want it on a plane going to New Zealand. I can understand that for anything that might leak mercury or lithium, but a sealed alkaline?

In the past I bought those replacement Mac batteries from Battery Masta at 45a Carlyle St.
