There are so many iBook users on here that it's a great place to ask. I have a two year old iBook 14". I love it. It goes everywhere with me. But the battery is starting to only last about 2 hours.
I've tried running it down completely before recharging it but it still oly gives me about two ours.
First, can I fix this to get more time out of it?
Second, what experience can people share about getting replacement batteries in a nd around Toronto?
I will probably sell it next spring but would like to benefit from the improved battery life myself, first.
Rumour has it that running it down completely and recharging it three or four times in a row will improve performance. It didn't work for me, but then my old battery was only holding a 15-minute charge and was obviously beyond redemption. It might be worth a shot.
Altohugh I do not live in toronto, I know that since it is a 14" iBook I belive all the batteries are the same so you should easily enough be able to go to your local Apple reseller and order one or pick one up should they have one in stock.

Arguably, if it exists in reality, it is realistic
If proof requires certainty, then arguably nothing can ever be proven
There was a battery for a 14" iBook in the classifieds here on Ehmac for about $40. Once the size was posted, I stopped paying attention to whether it was sold or not. Might still be out there.
There are also third party batteries that are 2/3 the cost of an Apple replacement, and can be had with varying mAh hours. There is a Canadian company that sells these too. I don't have the reference here, but will try to look it up later.
