Unfortunatly they don't make the 1002 AV anymore so replacing the batteries is pretty much your only choice. Though the batteries in the AV 1002 aren't made to be user replaceable you can if you don't mind a little soldering.
The 1002 uses two Sub C (SC) size 1.2V 1300 mAh NiCd batteries. You can get the batteries from places like www.batteryspace.com. I got two 5000mAh Tenergy batteries from Amazon for $7.40 each; . Be sure to get batteries with tabs (don't try to solder directly to the batteries).
When you have the new batteries in hand, pull the three screws from the back of the 1002. Using a screwdriver carefully split the case (there are four plastic clips holding the back to the front). Pry the old batteries from the small patch of adhesive in the case front. Pull the two white plastic caps off the ends of the battery pack. Using a soldering iron, de-solder the positive (red) and negative (white) leads from the old batteries. Note, you'll actually be de-soldering the thyristor (?) at the end of the end of the negative lead from the battery tab.
Take the two new batteries and solder the positive tab of one to the negative tab of the other such that they can be folded together to make a cylindrical pack that looks like the one you're replacing.
Solder the Red positive lead to the free positive tab and the thyristor to the free negative tab of your new battery pack.
Wrap the whole thing in electrical tape, making sure the thyristor is in good contact with one of the batteries and that there is no exposed wire that could cause a short.
Put the two plastic caps on your new battery pack, place the pack in the case and re-assemble the case.
Not sure how long the new batteries will take to charge but give it at least 24 hrs to make sure.
If you're not handy with solder, it might be worth spending a little time surfing some of the DIY battery pack forums (there's actually quite a few) and there's probably several good videos out there as well.
This project sounds much worse than it is and it beats tossing an excellent $60 ******** in the dust bin. Good luck!

Extending the battery life?


Hi,

You have a Motorola CP-680, so that's the Make/Model of the radio.

You haven't informed me as to the type of battery you have powering the set. Is it a battery pack?, is it battery cells and if so what type of cells....AA or AAA? or whether it's a rechargeable type, i.e,. Nicad, Lithium, NMh, this info is required so we can quickly provide the answer, Having said all that, I'll do something I don't like doing, and take a guess....

Because it's a GP series radio, It may in fact be a battery pack, therefore it will either be NiCad or Li-ion. That being the case, you must have a battery charger that came with your radio. If you have a NiCad battery Pack, that is the culprit, as these batteries retain memory between each charge, and unless you completely drain all power from them, before recharging, you will not be getting a fully charged battery, as these will only top up the charge from the previous charge, if you follow my drift.

Better to buy Li-ion battery pack specific to your radio, as these don't have a memory issue, these are available on ebay for a reasonable price.

I hope you've understood my explanation, and that my advice has been useful.

Regards,
Peter

You don't have to buy new ones because you can repair it at home. There is this very nice and efficient Nicad Battery Repair Guide through which you can recharge the old Nicad batteries within no time. With the help of Nicad battery repair manual, you can recharge the old batteries using basic home tools. I tried it myself and now I never buy new Nicad batteries anymore!

Short battery life


Batteries have a limited lifespan, typically 3 or 4 years for lithium, more for NiCad and NiMh , and their capacity between charges decreases over the years.
To extend the lifetime of a battery it should be run completely flat after every few charges rather than topping it up. This is essential with NiCads. New batteries need to be charged several times and run flat under normal use before they gain their full capacity.

How do i repair nicad battery


There is no repair, batteries fail, you have to replace them. the bad deal is that you can replace the drill with a new one for about the same $ or less.

Recently bought Craftsman Lithium battery & charger that failed.


Sounds like your charger is only for NiCad batteries. With most brands, the new Lithium chargers will also charge the old NiCads, but the old NiCad chargers will not charge the new Lithium batteries. You will be very happy with the lithiums once you are able to fix the problem. As for Craftsman, buy Craftsman hand tools such as wrenches and sockets but I'd look elsewhere for battery powered tools.

Good call.  Because if this unit was made the same company that made portable DVD players, they went out of business last year and Wal Mart was replacing them as a result of that.

Types of batteries.


You can use AA disposable batteries (alkaline or lithium) or rechargeable (NiMH or Nicad) batteries. Lithium batteries last much longer, but are generally quite a bit more expensive than alkaline batteries. You should never mix old and new batteries or different types of batteries. If you use Nicad batteries, it is recommended that you use a Nicad conditioning charger to extend the life of the batteries. Note: If you use rechargeable batteries, you will need a battery charger. The camera's AC power supply does not recharge batteries.
