FRS-14ND 2 way radio

I have a pair of FRS-14ND 2 way radios.It says in the manual to use alkaline batteries. I noticed a plug in for earphones and just above that there is a plug in for a charger. DC 7.5 volts. Can i use a rated power pack on this radio and if so do the batteries have to be rechargable? And if i use a power pack / charger, can i run the radio while it is power pack is plugged in? I have tried to reach Columbia Telecommunications, but no luck. Thank You, Gary.

Hello you can recharge the batteries only if the bateries you are using are rechargables, this could be Bat recharg. 2AA or 3AA or a pack.

Cobra microtalk will not charge


this is the sign of a damaged or dead battery pack. they can be rebuilt at Batteries Plus or replaced. I would also try alkaline batteries in the radio before spending money on new battery packs. Most rechargeable battery packs must be kept charged regularly, and should be fully discharged before recharging, or they will be damaged and end up with a limited lifespan. IF you are handy with a multimeter you can check to see that the charger is putting voltage out by placing the probes on the contacts while it is plugged in. especially if the cord is twisted or looks stretched, but generally it is the battery not the charger.

COBRA MICRO TALK1 FRS 100


THEY SHOULD ALL WORK TOGETHER ON THE FRS FREQUENCIES. MAKE SURE THAT YOU SET THE CHANNELS AND SUBCHANNELS TO THE SAME ON ALL FRS RADIO.

It came with battery i assume are rechargable but when plugged in there is no sign that they are charging and when you take them off the charger they die in a few seconds


It looks like some of these came with alkaline battery backs, some with rechargeables, and some with no batteries. The rechargeable packs will be marked "NiMH" with the part number FA-BD on them. If yours are the rechargeable types they probably need to be replaced. You can also power the units with 4 AAA alkaline batteries.

Motorola SX700 battery drainage w/tactical mike


It is likely the mic set you are using is not made for the SX700 radio, and is drawing too much power from the radio. Some audio accessories draw more power than others. It is possible your mic set is intended for a professional model radio which would supply more power to the device. You should check with Motorola to see if they have a mic set similar to go with your SX700 radio. Here is a link to their online store: http://www.store.motorola.com/mot/en/US/adirect/motorola;jsessionid=130652F39955D9E9CA94908C45C73822.mot3?cmd=catDisplayStyle&entryPoint=adirect&catKey=601560&messageType=catDisplayStyle

Charging batteries


the cobras are meant to work with alkaline cells. You bought nicads which are a lower voltage per cell (1.2 to 1.38). Alkalines are about 1.55-1.58

That is why your rechargeables only show a quarter charge, because their terminal voltage is lower and the radio thinks they are not fully-charged.

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.

Manual and battery charger needed


I'm still looking for the manual (?).. it's more of a pamplet as I recall.

The battery charger is...
AC/DC Adapter Model 0750200DF
Specs are:

120 V AC 60 Hz to 7.5 /v 200ma

If you can't find the right adapter, you can probably get one of the universal adapters that will work.

I also recommend that you replace the batteries with "Brand New Original Pair Battery For FreeWalker RD-810, RD-820, RD-008, RD-820 Features
***Brand New Original Pair Battery For FreeWalker RD-810, RD-820, RD-008, RD-820***
Best replacement battery for FreeTalker Walkie-Talkie RD-810, RD-820, RD-008, RD-820.
Crafted with latest Lithium-Ion technology, it is intended to delivers long lasting talk times.
This Li-Ion based battery provides power in a thin, short and light package, fits the compatible
Walkie-Talkie model perfectly. It has power capacity of 600mAh, which allow you constantly talking
for 3 hours. standby time up to 3 days. It is absolutely an ideal choice that you won't be sorry
for getting."

Much more talk time than the original batteries.
