Li-Ion for sure, accessory X911A. Rather state-of-the-art at that time;
1994-5 was the era of the self-combusting PowerBook 5300 Li-Ion batteries,
after all.

2. Battery in the machine, AC power/charger unit connected through the
3. AC power/charger unit and battery both out of the machine, connected to
each other through the cable.

three? Damn, I wish Sun would still have the manual for this thing online.
Why is it that I could still download one for my LX's, which are older, but
not for the Voyager? Anyone have a PDF or HTML version they'd be willing to
