Hi Sarah,

Don't despair, there is a solution to this sticky problem, it will cost a little more, try the Lithium Ion version battery, these can be purchased online at ebay for a much more reasonable price than in some stores.

The make of your radio is the VERTEX Standard, is that correct?

If so, you'll have no problems finding your batteries under Electronics section on ebay.

I hope you find this solution helpful.

Kind regards,
Peter

I need a rechargeable battery for a Uniden Portable VHF HH985 RADIO.


Hi. You'll find that difficult to get as the Ni-cad technology is pretty much obsolete.
You could rebuild the battery pack with equivalent sized Ni-MH cells if you can get into it or look for the Alkaline battery holder (GHDZ34956Z) and use rechargeable cells in that. Maybe contact Uniden directly.

I have a makita 6391D cordless drill with 18v ni-cd 1.3ah batteries, just had one battery and charger stolen so have to buy replacements is there any way i can convert it now to lithium batteries if


I can't find a Makita model 6391D drill but they do have a model 6390D drill that takes the 18V Ni-Cd pod battery. The tools and radio don't care what type of battery you use, only that they are 18V. However, to date, Makita does not make a Li-Ion, pod battery. All of their Li-Ion batteries are the slide-on type. Your options for that 18V tool is the 2.6ah Ni-MH battery (PN 193159-1 for a single or 194158-6 for a twin pack), the 2.0ah (PN 192827-3) and 1.3ah (PN 194107-3) Ni-Cd batteries.

I lost the battery charger for the BigFoot toy. Can I buy one?


I know you can get these on Ebay. Also most NI-MH 9 volt battery charges will charge this battery pack. You can use a 9 Volt Snap Battery Connector with Alligator Clips to bridge the connection between the battery pack and the NI-MH 9 volt batter charger. This is how I charge this battery pack now. You can probably get the 9 Volt Snap Battery Connector with Alligator Clips at a radio shack or on Amazon... as well as a NI-MH 9 volt battery charger.. don't hook up the leads backwards :)

Logitech MX1000 Laser Cordless Mouse, I replaced the li-ion battery with a NiMh AAA battery pack, soldered in the board that was on the old battery and used it for a week before the battery pack needed...


Li-Ion battery and NiMh battery have completely different charging requirements! Li-Ion battery has much stricter charging requirement and the regulator is normally design to trickle charge at 0.1 Current rating @ 4.2V and then completely shut down.
WARNING: if you use a Ni-Mh charger on a Li-Ion battery, then it will erupt and even explode and catch fire!
Bottom line is that the rescued Li-ion regulator is not designed for your Ni-Mh pack and you will never get a full charge with it and you will need a completely different regulator board: you are better off putting in a suitably sized Li-Ion battery with inbuilt regulator but with higher current rating if possible.
Hope it helps! Let me know how you go.

When the case gets moved, as putting on ones belt, the power cycles on and off.


It sounds like the battery connections are loose. Remove the battery pack and ensure the connections are clean and making good contact. It's also possible the tabs that hold the battery to the radio are worn. Be sure the battery pack is seating well.

Hi,I need a replacement battery pack for my Sitex handheld VHF HH-250.Thanks Original 8N-600


What you need is at the VERY least is a Ni-Cd battery pack with 600mA/hr rating. We have an HH-300, with a configuration of 4AAx2.

Interstate Batteries has the BEST price I could find, although when we bought the HH-300, I sent it to SiTex for a new battery AND a tune-up which cost around $100.
Here's the link to the Interstate battery website.

Hope this helps.

(EDIT)
Do NOT forget that these radios are wired center pin negative! (Don't ask how I found this out...)

The FT-50R is an extended receive, but dual band (UHF & VHF) amateur transceiver. It is capable of transmitting between approximately 144Mhz - 148Mhz VHF and 430Mhz - 450Mhz UHF.

Typically, the radio will provide an audible warning whenever attempting to operate outside of its intended range(s). The manual has a section on maximizing battery life, and can be downloaded below:
