Remove the battery by lifting the battery from the battery terminal. Be careful to note which end is positive and which is negative. The positive end should be facing away from the PCI slots. It is important to lift the battery as straight up as possible to avoid damage to battery or terminal.

This is not valid for the late 2005 model of G5…Model 11,2.

It uses a coin shaped Panasonic Lithium battery. I just ordered one from OWC.
