Correction for Powerbook G3 and Clamshell Notebook (3.5 mm jack): Tip (1 = front-most connector) is _NOT_ connected. Ring (2 = middle connector) is the common lead (minus polarity). The sleeve (3) is connected to +24V, this is the inner (hot) wire (with white insulation) of the original G3 (yo-yo type) power adaptor.
Also there is a supply for the loading indicator LED _within_ the plug. A resistor from +24V to the outer 9.5mm tube around the power plug.

According to 22 reports in our database (20 positive and 1 negative) the Apple TiBook power connector pinout should be correct.
