How to Better Apple MacBook 13" A1181 Battery Life
Tip 1: Power Down the Display
Do you know one of the most effective ways to conserve laptop battery life is to lower the brightness of the screen display? Its been known that lowering one level of screen brightness will yield up to 10 more minutes of battery life. You can easily do this by going to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Display and clicking the Settings tab. You can also disable those cool effects like ClearType fonts and fade effects to reduce the CPU's power consumption.
Tip 2: Decrease Hard Drive Activity
You can also optimize the Windows' paging file - the area of the laptop hard drive that serves as virtual memory whenever your RAM is full. Optimizing the paging file size ensures your hard drive is accessed less frequently when you run out of system memory. To change it, go to the Control Panel > System > Advanced > Performance Settings > Advanced > Virtual Memory Change. Set both the initial and maximum paging file size to 1.5 times the capacity of your installed RAM size.
Your laptop hard drive is another power eating culprit. To save power, you should reduce the frequency with which your hard disk has to spin. To do this, you can try defragmenting your hard drive regularly. This can be done using the Disk Degfragmenter in the Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools menu.

I found a link said Apple A1185 Battery 93% OFF!?
Anyway, I accidentally found this link when I search on the internet, because I wanted to buy an Apple A1185 Battery online. I found this link totally amazing, cause it stated that within less than 2 days, it would host a sales event for this battery, and it was almost 93% OFF! I wonder if it is true. If it is, that will save a whole lot of money!
Check this link out: http://www.bilatek.co.uk/Apple_Macbook_A1185_Battery_Replacement_10_8V_5200MAH_White_13p.html
Is it true?
hey, I checked the link for you and found that it was not 93% OFF, but 45% OFF, maybe they are not holding the big sales event as you see before, but 45% is still a great deal to me. Worth a try. Anyway, I made an order, cause my sister is asking me to find the same battery for her. Hope the battery is good.
how much does apple charge to replace the dc in port on a macbook?
I have a black macbook A1185 and my dc in port is broken. the two outer pins on the port are all messed up but the three in the middle look fine which im assuming is why it will run with the charger in but not charge. i dont have any apple care or warranty on my macbook so im wondering how much apple will charge to replace it for me. im thinking about doing it myself cuz im sure apple will want to charge something outrageous like up to 400 but i cant find any good guides on how to do it. if you know how much it costs or any good guides please leave an answer below
its really not to bad. I work on geek squad and we send them out for Dc jacks from time to time. its usually around 50 bucks.
