According to the owners manual for this unit the cord cannot be replaced. They instruct the user to call Motorola at 800-353-2729. Most likely they will offer you a new charger. If not, get the part number from them and either google it, or repost it here on FixYa and I will respond with pricing/availability information.

To the best of our knowledge the charging base and cord come together as a set. You can contact Giant Intl (who manufactures them for Motorola) and get replacements: 1-800-638-5119, giantintl@callcenter.com

I need charger for netset pro44 scanning receiver please



  • Hi, i can help.

  • The original is not really gonna be find-able. But there is a DC/DC and AC/DC power cord that are the replacement for them.


  • For AC/DC you can go anywhere and get a 9VDC - 300 mA AC/DC wall wart with a 1.3 mm / 3.4 mm. plug. Radios Shack have gone to selling universal wall worts and selling the tips for them separate. So if you go to radio shack use tip "H" along with the spec I listed above. They will know which one if you give them that info.



  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Have a Motorola 2 way walkie talkies but misplaced the manual on how to operate the unit. Bought these at Canadain Tire about 5 yrs. ago. Not sure if 1XTN4004B or CH600 is the model number. Please advise...


Haven't been able to locate a user guide for the multi-unit charger. However, it is pretty much plug-in-n-play. It can charge a battery inside a radio, or also accommodate a battery alone in each of 6 cups. As for replacement parts, they are not available, and you cannot purchase the multi-unit tray separate from the power supply. This is a slow rate charger and would take 10 hours to charge your batteries (or overnight). Radios/batteries should only be placed on the charger when nearly depleted. (Consider your charge a place your radios go to bed overnight.)

If you are having difficulty with charging, clean your battery contacts on the exterior of the radio and inside the charger cups with a pencil eraser.

This tray can act as a radio cloning station. See page 23 about cloning in the XTN radio user guide: http://www.123radios.com/manuals/xtnmanual.pdf

Best regards.

My charger for my Motorola T6510 is not charging. The charger is getting power.


Check your battery contacts, both on the radio and the charger. Clean with a pencil eraser if needed. It is possible you are not getting good contact. If both radios are not getting charged in a dual well charger, you may have a problem with either the wall adapter or the base. (Assuming your batteries are good.) Wall adapters burn out over time, somewhat like a light bulb.

Replacements are available at the Motorola online store. http://www.store.motorola.com/2-Way-Radio-Rechargeable-Battery-Upgrade/dp/B003H0FUD2?ie=UTF8&id=2-Way%20Radio%20Rechargeable%20Battery%20Upgrade&field_availability=-1&field_launch-date=-1y&field_browse=2265964011&searchSize=12&searchPage=1&searchNodeID=2265964011&refinementHistory=brandtextbin%2Csubjectbin%2Ccolor_map%2Cprice%2Csize_name&searchRank=salesrank This kit contains a pair of new batteries and a complete charger.

Best regards.

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.

Charger should be able to power the radio at 'EL' level, if NOTHNG happens, I'd say charger is on the blink.

I need an electrical connection for 2-way Radio charger base.


Check the voltage of the battery and pick something 1-3 volts higher.

If you have an ohm meter you can meter between battery contacts and charger wall wart jack and see which one is positive and negative and match your transformer up to it.

Charger / Adapter


Radio shack sales a universal power adapter. <CAUTION> make sure the adapter is set to the correct voltage and that the tip is set to the correct polarity. The only other option is to order the adapter from Cobra.

Lost power supply


Hi,

If the desktop charger is the version that can accommodate two radios simultaneously similar to the T5000, then the AC wall adapter or the power supply is 9 volts AC.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
