If your two-way radio batteries seem to be wrapped in a cellophane you may not need to unwrap them. Many rechargeable batteries are simply a group of cells held together by cellophane/plastic wrapping. If it appears the battery contacts are exposed and will touch the appropriate place in the radio, do not unwrap. If still questioning this, please post back with your radio model and possibly the battery part number. Someone knowledgeable will likely respond.

Best regards.

My vw passat battery died,after being charged car now wont stop making beeping noise,car has an alarm,can anyone help please?

wrap a rag around the alarm unit to silence it, the unit has it's own internal battery and will soon run down. Replace your fully charged car battery and then you can safely unwrap the alarm unit without it going off and annoying your neighbours. Hope this helps.

Bluetooth is not a program that you can install. In order for you to use bluetooth, you will have to buy a "bluetooth adapter" from a local electronics store.

I have an AcuRite #00994W oven thermometer and have just tried to use it for the first time and find that it will not turn on. I assume the battery must be dead but cannot find battery replacement...

Hold firmly to the face of the thermometer with your right hand. With your left hand fingers push the stand towards you slightly. Then use your thumb on the opposite side to separate the stand from the main unit. Do not squeeze the sides together. Do not be surprised if breaks the tabs that hold the stand to the unit. This part of the unit is poorly designed. You should then see the battery compartment on the back of the unit. Be aware it takes 2 AAA batteries.
