Our PowerBook G4’s PRAM Battery seems to be pretty dead, just wondering if anyone knows of a place in Canada or North America that sells the appropriate LIR3032-VDY2 horizontal-mount lithium coin cell battery to replace the CGL3032?
(I have been able to find a place in the UK, but they apparently plan to post a lithium coin cell using £3 international Royal Mail so uhhhh????)
@mmu_man depends what you mean, like, I could hypothetically substitute a smaller diameter lithium-ion coin cell (those *are* somewhat more common) but I don’t have the means to safely solder tabs to a bare cell if that’s what you mean
@ticky it's spot-welded. It seems you can do a spot-welder with a car battery and some wires…
That's the kind of thing you could maybe find or do at your local hackerspace:
