Default 3rd party 65 WH battery and flashing power & battery lights - 05-16-2009, 02:56 AM

I just bought a 65 WH 3rd party battery for my Mini (running 10.5.7). I'm definitely getting longer battery life with this larger battery...haven't had it long enough yet to tell how much.

I am getting some odd behavior. The front two lights on the Mini are blinking white (power) and orange *battery), oscillating back and forth while the Mini is turned on, regardless if the AC adapter is plugged in or not.

Is anyone else having that same sort of behavior? Anyone solve this?

yeah I posted about it yesterday.
i bought a 8 cell off of amazon or ebay?

anyhow at first it went from 70% or so to 82% then started flashing.

In the end I kept the power adapter plugged in then removed the battery and it cahrged normally. after reboot It started flashing again but my unplug method fixed it again!

8.5 hours from 100% to full drain.

Totally worth the weight.And the extension actually makes it more ergo!

very pleased.

Ill post this info in my thread as well(a little later!)
