Microtalks don't seem to charge, even charged many hours

We charged our microtalks overnight before first using them and they worked fine for a long time, now they won't seem to charge up again.

When you say they worked fine for a long time, do you mean a long time as in "hours", or for many months or years? If hours, then remove the batteries and be sure they are in correctly and plug the charger into a different electrical outlet. If the radios have not been used for many months or longer, you probably need to replace the rechargeable battery.

Will not charge and actually seems to discharge when plugged in to auto charger


Charge the unit overnight with a high power usb charger, 2A or above. If it turns on after that, check your auto charging cable. It should have a red led that illuminates if it has power. If it does not, then it is either the cable or a fuse blown in your car. If the gps still does not turn on after chargning overnight, you have a batter issue. Amazon sells battery kits.

Hi, I have a new ryobi touch start weedeater. I have used it twice. I charged it overnight for first use. It worked fine. After 2nd use ran out of charge so I re charged it . It doesn't seem


If it doesn't seem to be recharging or taking a full charge, check the charging jack to make sure no foreign object (leaf debris, etc) got into it. If it is clean, then you probably have a warranty issue with the battery or charging system.

Note: do not leave the string trimmer out in the sun or outdoors in cold weather while it is charging. The charging process only works properly at room temperature. In particular, lithium batteries are very finicky about charging conditions. Charging overheated lithium batteries can cause a fire, so they have a safety circuit to prevent charging outside the proper temperature range.

How long should you charge the batteries on your Cobra cxt235 when you first get it?


Hi,

usually overnight is the best with the radio turned off.

Always charge your batteries with the radio turned off, else you'll burn out your batteries before their time was due for replacement.
I hope I have answered your query for you.

Best regards,
Peter

Mint Plus Turbo Charging Cradle won't function properly


Cradle and contacts are fine. Cradle circuit is nothing but a reed relay and few wires, relay closes on proximity to robot's body, therefore no voltage on contacts before robot is close to cradle.
There is a thermistor inside of battery, and mine was bad. I removed it and now I am charging the battery from my bench power supply at about 220 ma current, overnight, and it works. Probably the solution is to get a new replacement battery, but the one with the thermistor inside (OEM), easily recognized by the third wire, and all should be fine, assuming that nothing else is wrong with charging circuit or power adapter (12v/1A)
Hope this will give you some ideas of where to poke.
Once successful, please post your solution.

I just put new batteries in my Cobra microtalk PR 3500 DX battery charger. How long will it take to charge them? Should the Radio's be in the on or off position. Thank You mjbarry42@comcast.net Mike...


The radios will work fine while being charged, but they will charge faster if turned off. Normal charging time is 8-10 hours, but I would recommend an overnight charge - they won't overcharge or be damaged by the longer charge time.

What channel do I put the radios on to charge it or how do I charge it? The radios don't seem to charge.


Turn the radios off when you are charging them. The charger may not have the current flow to effectively charge the radios when they are on. If you need to monitor a channel, try charging them one at a time.

Will not come on or only for 1 second


It sounds as if the battery is not charging. Leave it connect to a turned on computer overnight and try it after a full nights charge.or about 12 hours. Let us know if this doesn't work.

Microtalks won't charge


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.
