View Full Version : battery orientation

I pulled the old battery and had a brain fart. I forgot which way the positive and negative were oriented on an iMac 500Mhz G3. It is the one that the battery goes front to back not side to side as some older G3 iMacs do. At least most of the manuals I have found do. Can someone take a look and let me know if the positive faces towards the round end of the motherboard or the straight side.

It requires a flashlight and good eyes... the black case that holds the battery has + and - marked inside it
