Newer Technology, Inc. (NewerTech‘) and Other World Computing (OWC) today introduced the NuPower ‘MaxCapacity’ replacement battery compatible with the PowerBook G3 FireWire (2000/Pismo) and PowerBook G3 Lombard (1999/Bronze Keyboard) models.

Utilizing the latest Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) cell technology, the new 7200mAh PowerBook battery provides 50 percent more capacity than the Apple stock battery for PowerBook G3 Lombard and FireWire models and is available immediately for $159.95.

“The NuPower ‘MaxCapacity’ battery gives Pismo and Lombard owners even more use out of their laptop without having to recharge,” said Larry O’Connor, president of OWC. “Batteries don’t last forever, and some people may even just like to have a second battery on hand. The ‘MaxCapacity’ offers phenomenal battery run time and makes a great replacement whether your stock battery is past its time or not.”

The new NuPower ‘MaxCapacity’ battery rounds out the line of additional NuPower replacement batteries for G3 and G4 PowerBooks, including the NuPower 6600mAh (now priced at $149.95, formerly $159.95) and 5400mAh (now priced at $139.95, formerly $145.99) batteries also available for Pismo and Lombard models.

“These batteries are the ‘once you try ‘em, you’ll love ‘em’ kind,” O’Connor said. “Who wouldn’t like more battery life for their laptop? NuPower replacement batteries give users crucial added time as their primary power source when no electric outlet is near.”

The NuPower ‘MaxCapacity’ battery as well as the full line of high capacity batteries, including models for the PowerBook G3 ‘Wallstreet’ and PowerBook G4 Titanium are available through OWC. For more information or to order, visit or e-mail
