Last year when my Apple iBook laptop has a faulty mainboard it discharged my battery completely and it will now not charge.
Apple Korea want 180,000 (@US $180) for a replacement battery. In the US you can get a replacement for $100, or a third party battery with better battery life for $130.
note to self: order one this week.
