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.

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

Cxt90 microtalk radio charging


Hi,
When charging batteries always do so with the radio switched off, this is a MUST, if you want to prolong your battery life, too many queries on this subject have resulted in burnt out batteries, being recharged with the radio on. This is a very big NO, NO....

I hope I have answered your query for you.

Cheers,
Peter

The battery may be dead. If it was indicating it was charging for 48 hours and still did not work, you can be pretty sure it will not charge again.

I lost my cobra cxt227 manuals but I need to charge them. Do I charge them with the units on or off? How do I know they are charging?


You're best to charge them powered off. It's healthier for the batteries. Just put them on the charger and give them about 12 hours of uninterupted charging time.

Charging cobra cxt90


HELLO THERE AND WELCOME TO FIXYA
This is a fairly common issue with these radios
The thing about these radios is that the batteries are made to be able to charge for long periods of time HOWEVER the battery will begin to lose its charging capabilities due to long periods of charging then will get overcharged and then they are bad after that so you may have several charges on it then all of the sudden it no longer charges this is a sign of overcharging
what you can do to check is to take the battery out and use a multimeter to test the charge on the battery then test the charger to test it as well to ensure it is charging properly
If the battery is bad you should be able to go to radio shack or any good radio dealer and get a replacement battery or you can order one thru the radios manufacture ok?
Hope this helps please post me back if yo need further assistance or have any more questions ok?
Best regards mike

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.

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.

Brand New Cobra microtalk won't work!


Double check against all the instructions - in particular, make sure the batteries are charged according to "before first use" spec, that the volume is turned up, and that the squelch (if fitted and not automatic) is adjusted properly. If it still doesn't work, take it back to Wal-Mart. If the product doesn't work, there's no need for the packaging to be in good condition - it's not as if they'll be needing it to resell the goods to anybody else. A.
