SOURCE: How to charge battery in Motorola Talkabout Distance DPS

You can obtain a wall adapter style charger for your radio at your local Motorola dealer, or online at http://www.eradiostore.com/cart/index.php?target=products&mode=search&subcats=Y&type=extended&avail=Y&pshort=Y&pfull=Y&pname=Y&epcode=Y&q=htn8232

Sidenote: The rechargeable battery is good for about 2 to 3 years. You can tell the age of your battery by looking at the date code on the back of the battery above the stop sign. The first number is the year, the next two numbers are the week of the year. 915 would be 2009 the 15th week. (Or if very old it could be 1999 the 15th week.) A good battery, when charged will go an 8-10 hour day.

Keep both of your charge trays, replacements for these are no longer available.

What kind of charger does this Kodak Dashboard CW330 take?


The original battery pack is nothing but 2 AA batteries held together with a plastic holder, you can use regular AA rechargeable batteries and save some money. I had a similar camera with the original battery pack held together with some plastic holder, I simply substituted that battery pack with 2 regular rechargeable common batteries and camera works the same.

Motorola talkabout MJ270R switching off when transmitting


Turning off while transmitting is typically a sign of a weak or bad battery. However, since you mention it happens with either battery type, another cause might be the length of time you are depressing the PTT button. These radios have a fail-safe to prevent damaging the final amplifier of the radio. To protect itself the radio will shut down or stop transmitting after the PTT button is held in too long. This being said, I'd check the batteries first. The rechargeable battery pack which came with the radio has a one year life expectancy. A battery can test full when it is weak and might not hold the charge when placed under a load. And usually transmit is the first thing to fail.

Best regards.

On our 2-way radios you can transmit on one but you can't transmit on the other the model # is RDU2020


I had a similar problem - my Talkabouts would not transmit - after checking the interference codes, qt, etc, it turns out the rechargeable batteries weren't able to handle the 1-watt mode. I switched to another FRS channel that only transmitted at .5 watts, and that seems to have cured the problem, but the range is probably reduced. With another set, I chucked (recycled) the rechargeables and placed 3 new AAA's in and it worked like a champ for a long time. Hope this helps

Where can i buy a replacement battery for the philips avent baby monitor?


My wife and I have the same monitor in the picture on this FixYa site. The battery pack is basically two AAA nickel metal hydride rechargeable batteries. Remove the old battery pack. Cut the paper that binds the batteries and plastic pieces in place. We bought a pack of rechargeable batteries at Radio Shack. I cut a piece of metal coat hanger about 2/3" long. I then bent it in half forming a squashed U. I placed the piece of hanger in the "top" (w/o holes) piece of plastic and placed the new batteries in the plastic piece (realize that the RH battery needs to have "+" down and the LH battery (-) down). I also slid the bottom piece onto the batteries too. I used some electrical tap to hold the batteries and plastic pieces together (wrapped around the assembly). Snap it in...it will fit slightly tighter than the original, but will work just fine. One could possibly forgo the hanger piece and maybe use some aluminum foil. I figured the coat hanger is a better conductor.

Motorola talkabout t5700


No, the charger is only usable to charge the rechargeable NiMH or Li-Ion battery which comes with the radio. Attempting to charge Alkaline rechargeable batteries with this charger could cause the to expode. If your charger is not charging the batteries which came with the units, it could be you do not have the charger cord end plugged in all the way, or the batteries dropped below the initial charge level by setting on a store shelf too long. Most TalkAbouts come with a cradle style charger to hold the radio, and a possible plug to plug into the charge hole. Check all connections, and clean any battery/charger contacts with a pencil eraser. To re-initialize the batteries you would need to attempt 3-5 charge cycles by charging for 8-10 hours, then letting the battery rest for 8-10 hours, repeating 3-5 times as needed. If this does not bring the battery back to life, you need to replace the batteries.

5.8 GHZ Motorola Cordless Phone, Base w/1 additional phone


This is not a problem with the battery but rather the phone has lost sync. You can get it back by going to the menu screen then going to register. The phone will walk you through from there. Mine lose sync from time to time and I get the same error. I have these phones both in my shop and home.
Hope this helped you out...

Rechargeable batteries


They are a plastic wrap of 5 aaa batteries.......if you can't find the direct replacement for those batteries, you can just make up a battery pack yourself.
The main thing when doing this is to use the same TYPE of battery. For example alot of these battery packs use NiMH or NiCD batteries. The charger that came with the radios is designed to charge this type of battery. So look at the battery pack and if it says they are NiMH bateries... pick up 5 AAA NiMH batteries... connect them in series and your set.

All you really have to do is get the same type of battery that is close to the same voltage.
So if your stuck.... just make up a battery pack.
If you had a charger for Lithium Ion batteries, I would say make the battery pack out of those type insted. They are 1.5 volts insted of the lower voltage of NiMH and other rechargeables.
The slight increase in voltage will increase the output wattage of the radio.
But again, Lithium Ions use a different type charger than NiMH.... so if you want to use the same charger.... use the same type of batteries.
Take care
