Who sells IIgs batteries?


Recommended Posts

Where can I order a replacement memory backup battery for my IIgs? I understand mine is a time bomb rushing for it's last tick. There is only one eBay seller who has them, and he's too stupid to understand that the Post Office delivers to P.O. boxes.

ReactiveMicro sells them. Assuming you have a ROM 3 IIgs, here's the relevant link in their store...


Battery: IIgs ROM3


If you have a ROM 0/1, they also sell a nifty battery caddy.

The battery caddy is a nice way to move the batteries off from the main board.

The 1/2 AA 3.6v can be a ticking bomb.

If any body had a red Maxell battery in their apple - toss it out now!

I used the Saft in the link, zeno and a purple and black one (I don't think is made any more).

Those seemed ok.

I've heard nothing but horror stories about the Maxells.

These are standard 1/2AA 3.6 volt batteries.

You can get them almost anywhere.  Amazon, for instance has probably 10 different brands.


+1 for buying a battery holder and moving it off of the board.  Mine is attached to the top of the power supply with some two-sided tape.
