Question about Cobra Microtalk 100 FRS Walkie Talkie Radios 2 Pack
I've got a pair of Microtalks that I bought new about a year ago, they have'nt been used very much but they won't charge. I bought new batteries but still they won't take a charge. How long are the chargers normaly good for? The light won't come on for the charging unit. I've checked to make sure it's plugged in tight.
I have the Cobra Microtalk 4100 FRS radios with charging base. After changing the batteries with new nimh rechargables the charge light would not illuminate and the unit would not charge. I noticed the original batteries had a metal band around one end. This band makes a small connection inside the battery compartment on the first battery. Seems to be a cheap way to ensure you dont try to recharge the unit with non-rechargable batteries installed. I rapped a small piece of tinfoil around one end of the first battery in the new set then popped it back in and now they will charge correctly again. Dont try this with non-rechargable batteries! I would recomend buying original replacement batteries.
