The PowerBook gurus at Madsonline seeded us with a pre-release version of their new Micro-Adapter for the PowerBook G4 Titanium.

Pictured at right is the pre-release G4 adapter next to the ridiculously huge Apple UFO adapter at left (encased in the cool PackAge 45W from id east end.)

This pre-release adapter is essentially an Apple cable connected to their existing Micro adapter. The final product will ship with the Madsonline L-shaped connector plug and may be a slightly different color. Madsonline may sell a limited quantity of the first generation adapters in about three weeks via their Web site.

The pre-release adapter that I am using functions just as you would expect and runs at about the same temperature as their previous G3 Micro adapter, which is warmer than the Apple AC adapter. The temperature is normal according to Madsonline and is simply a tradeoff of such a small design.

The company expects the final model to be available in about six weeks. Pricing has not yet been determined.
