Question about Motorola Walkie Talkie 2-Way Radio

1 Answer

We just bought motorola MR350R radios. hubby unwrapped the battery and stuck it into the charger. the light went for a minute or so, then went out. Has he blown the battery or the charger, or both. to compound the problem, we had to use an adapter as the points were american and we use a different system in NZ. is there any way to check?. what the problem is.?. we can use rechargeable batteries on the radios, but would prefer to use the correct charger if possible.

What is the input voltage listed on the charger? It is probably on the large transformer that plugs into the wall. If it says 120-240v then you should have been able to use it. If it is only meant for 120v, then you have blown out the transformer and you need to purchase a 240 volt adapter. Tell me what it says and I can help you further.

My battery on the MR350R only last about two hours can i get a longer lasting battery for it

There is only one battery available for this style radio. Is it possible your battery is more than one year old, or had a poor initial charge? Either of these could result in poor talk time. Try using a known good battery in the radio, and see if the length of time differs. It could be as simple as replacing the battery.

The other thing that can effect talk time is the amount of time you spend talking (transmitting). If you are a heavy talker your radio will run down more quickly. The other thing would be special features such as having the Weather service turned on all the time, or voice activation turned on all the time. You might try shutting down any features you aren't actually using and see if that helps too.

Best regards.

Not working

This radio may need to be replaced, but before doing so try the following:
Trade batteries with a known good unit and see if the problem moves to the other radio.
Check your buttons to see if one is partially depressed or stuck.
Check to see you do not have the radio set to VOX mode.
Shut off all special features and go back to a basic setting with the frequency and code matching your other units. If it does not communicate then, you have a radio which needs replaced.

Turn the radio off when it is on the charger. Also, check your batteries, you may have a bad battery pack. Try a battery from a known good radio to see if the radio functions correctly with a different battery.

Will the motorola mr350r work with the motorola cs1110

  • The mr350 is a standard GMRS/FRS talk around radio and the cls1110 is a business band radio but bot operate in UHF. So if the cls1110 is programed to one of the frequencies I will list then the two will communicate. Otherwise they will not.
Here are the frequencies listed in order of channels on your radio. 1-22.

GP 360 Radio Charger

On a Motorola charger, when the battery is charging the light should be a constant red (or amber depending on the charger). When the charge cycle is complete the light will change to solid green. Sometimes the solid green time is brief, as the battery will begin to lose charge, and the charger will go back into trickle mode and change once again to red (or amber). In most cases, a flashing light indicates a problem, such as a bad or shorted battery, an incorrectly seated battery, dirty battery contacts, or a bad connection with the battery. (Note: Batteries last 18-24 months typically. Check your date code for the age of the battery.)

There were several chargers made for the GP360, including but not limited to a 60-minute charger, a 90-minute charger, a 10-hour trickle charger and a 6-unit gang charger which would be a rapid rate, either 60- or 90- minute. If you would supply your charger's model number we could tell you which one you have.
