PowerBook 190 / PowerBook 5300  (status 1998)

TechInfo 24361:

PowerBooks G3, 3400, 5300 and 190 share the same outer battery shape. But for 5300 and 190 only the NiMH Type (such as M3254) is suitable.

PowerBooks G3, 3400, 5300 und 190 benutzen die gleiche Gehäuseform. Für 5300 und 190 dürfen nur NiMH-Typen (wie z.B. M3254) verwendet werden.

Specified battery voltage: 14.4 V (190/5300) or 9.6 V (1400)
Technische Daten des Akkus: Spannung: 14.4 V (190/5300) bzw. 9.6 V (1400)

For a repair of your own for a PB 190/5300 12 single cells of type NiMh or NiCd are required, 1.2 V each.
For a repair of a PB1400 8 single cells of type NiMH are required, 1.2 V each. Size: about ø 17x66 mm.

Für einen Eigenbau oder Reparatur des verschweißten 190/5300-Akkus benötigt man 12 Einzelzellen mit je 1.2 V (NiMH oder NiCd), z.B. 12 Akkus à 1.2 V: NiCd, 1900 mAh à 5.15 DM: DM 62. 
Für das PB 1400 werden 8 Zellen mit hoher Kapazität benötigt. Evtl. geeignet:

7/5 AF, ø 17x66 mm, 3500 mAh (z.B. 8 * 12.70 DM: ca. 100 DM)
8HR-4/3AU, ø 17x67 mm, min 3500-3600 mAh, max. 3800-4000 mAh (Sanyo)
HHR380A, ø 17x67 mm (Größe L-A), min. 3700 mAh (Panasonic)
HHR450A, ø 18.2x67 mm, min. 4200 mAh (vermutlich zu groß; Größe L-FAT A; Panasonic)


The power adapter M3037 (for PB 190/5300) is specified as input 100-240 V AC, 50/60 Hz, output 24 V DC, 1.87 A (45 W). Other power adapters for PB 1400  show similar output voltages: output 24 V DC, 1.875 A (45 W).

Das Netzteil M3037, Macintosh PowerPook 45W Power Adapter, für PB 190/5300, ist spezifiziert mit Wechselspannung: 100-240 V (AC), 50/60 Hz auf der Primärseite,  Gleichspannung 24 V (DC), 1.87 A, 45 W sekundär. Weitere Angaben: 95-130 VA, 1.2 A. Auch die PB1400-Netzteile haben 24 V Ausgangsspannung.

You may run a PowerBook 190 with input voltages as low as 20 V, e.g. for solar powered applications.

Typischerweise läuft ein PowerBook 190 auch noch mit einer Eingangsspannung von 20 V (DC), z.B. wenn Ladung mit Solarzellen angestrebt wird. Werte für das PowerBook 1400 sind noch nicht bekannt.
