Switch laptop batteries without a coin Laptop Macs
When on the road, I have a spare battery in my bag for my PowerBook G4. But being a modern person, I have no coins in my wallet anymore. This is a problem when I want to change the battery of my lapptop.

I tried unlocking the battery with a key, but that was not easy. Then I discovered that one of the corners of the spare battery can be used very well to unlock the other battery. No more coins for me. I don't know if this works for other *books as well.

The current MacBook Pro batteries require only two thumbs to release them.

When was the last time Apple even made a laptop that needed something like this?

Round peg, square hole...

Come on, it's not like we're stuck for new hints or anything, Leopard has just come out. This is hardly McGuyver stuff.
