Are the power adapters for the new powerbooks compatable with a 800mhz ibook? Or are the voltages different?

Thanks.

Should be compatible. The only issue is if you have a 17" powerbook (which requires a higher voltage power supply, 65W I think). Even then, I don't think the 17" power supply will screw up an iBook. The 12 and 15" supplies will be fine.

You might want to check out the support discussions for powerbooks, power/battery issues. Here's one thread on a related topic (not sure if this URL will work for you though).

the 65 watt adapters work fine on 45 watt computers. They don't recommend using the 45 watts cord with the 65 watt adapter though.
