take GREAT care of the details:
* MOST of the macs use a 1/2 AA sized Li-battery
=> possible DIY replacement by two Alkaline cells (2x1.5V) - 1
Li-cell has around 3.6V
* FEW other macs, namely some Performas & like (68k as
well as PPC, e.g. PM500, PM600 series)
use a PC-style, square-plastic-block-with-leads-and-0.1"-connector
3-cell alkaline battery pack
=> possible DIY replacement by three Alkaline cells (3x1.5V)
