Hello all!

I bought a new BTI battery for a PowerBook 500 at Fry's back in 2001.  
It lasted a few months, then died. It seems that NiMH batteries have  
a relatively limited shelf life if they are not periodically cycled.  
The guys at http://www.batteryuniversity.com/ know more, I'm sure...

Just my $ .02
