Here are a few thoughts concerning charging a HNN9018 or HNN9044 battery in a SP50 radio:

1) Check the date code on your battery. Rechargeable batteries have a life expectancy of 2-3 years. Motorola brand batteries have a 3-digit number date code. The first number is the year of manufacture, and the next two numbers are the week of the year. Example: 352 would be 2013 (or 2003) the 52nd week.

2) Try another radio/battery in the charger and see if you have the same results.

3) Try charging the battery outside the radio. It will set front to back in the charger. The battery has an arrow on the bottom of it showing you which way to put it in the charger. If the battery charges in the charger without being in the radio, then your radio has a problem with the charging circuitry.

4) Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser, both inside the radio and outside, as well as on the battery itself. This radio's outside contacts are easily covered by film from hand oil and it will prevent the battery from getting a good charge.

5) Test your radio with another known good battery. If your radio is not working with the original battery and it appears to have not charged, it could be a radio problem, not a battery problem.

6) Try your radio in a different charger and see if you get the same result.

By this point in troubleshooting you should be able to determine if it is the battery, radio or charger.

Best regards.

SOURCE: GP 360 Radio Charger

On a Motorola charger, when the battery is charging the light should be a constant red (or amber depending on the charger). When the charge cycle is complete the light will change to solid green. Sometimes the solid green time is brief, as the battery will begin to lose charge, and the charger will go back into trickle mode and change once again to red (or amber). In most cases, a flashing light indicates a problem, such as a bad or shorted battery, an incorrectly seated battery, dirty battery contacts, or a bad connection with the battery. (Note: Batteries last 18-24 months typically. Check your date code for the age of the battery.)

There were several chargers made for the GP360, including but not limited to a 60-minute charger, a 90-minute charger, a 10-hour trickle charger and a 6-unit gang charger which would be a rapid rate, either 60- or 90- minute. If you would supply your charger's model number we could tell you which one you have.

SOURCE: Dangers of a Motorola being left on when charging in a multilpe

Don't know if you'd call it dangerous, but wisedom would be not to leave a radio turned on while on the charger. 1) Shortened battery life due to short charging. The battery will never be fully charged due to powering the radio. 2) Inadvertently pressing the PTT button while the radio on the charger can/will burn out components in the radio including the PA (final amp) which is a costly repair.

Instead of leaving the radio turned on while on the charger, buy a second battery to keep on the charger. Then you only need to swap batteries. Your radio would be able to remain on, and never be on the charger.

SOURCE: My Motorola CLS1110 Two way

You may have a bad battery, or even dirty battery contacts. A few troubleshooting ideas include:
1) Swap the battery to another known good CLS1110 radio and see if the other radio has the same problem when placed on the charger. If so, you have a bad battery. This type of battery typically lasts approx. 18-24 months before needing replaced.
2) If swapping the battery proves to be successful, check the battery contacts on the affected radio for debris, scum or dirt. Clean the contacts on the charger and the radio with a pencil eraser if needed. (The fact you have to readjust the walkie in the charger indicates you might have problems with the contacts.)
3) Try the battery from the known good radio in the affected radio, if the battery charges correctly, you know the radio is fine. If the charger blinks with the known good battery, then you know you have a radio problem.

Best regards.

Why wont my motorola photon q phone charge or power up...no green light comes on at all


Your charge cord may fit, but it may not be configured to your phone. I just bought a new Nexus phone that has the same charge port as my older Galaxy 4s phone. The Nexus charge plug fits into the Galaxy 4s charge port with no problems but does not charge after plugged into outlet. But the older charge cord will work with the new Nexus charging wise but data transfer will not work. So you may have a charge cord that plugs into phone, but may be configured differently due to phone manufacturer. Hope this helps.

Just got a Mag One BPR battery delivered to me and i put it on the charger. After about an hour the green light is on. I thought the battery needed to be charged for 8 hours the first time? Why the green...


The charger which comes with the BPR40 is a rapid charger. (The book doesn't indicate if it is a 90 min. or 3 hour charger.) None-the-less, your battery is fine. When your charger is displaying green it will continue to trickle (slow) charge the battery to keep it topped off, so to speak. The first 3 charge cycles you should leave the battery on the charger the full recommended time. On most Motorola radios it is 10-12 hours. This will assure your battery is charged to full capacity and initiated properly. In most cases, your traditional charging of the radio should be overnight. When you go to bed, put the radio to bed on the charger.

FYI: All batteries come from the factory with some charge in them. It is a small test charge to assure the battery's funcationality.

If for some reason after the first week or so, you think your battery or charger is not functioning properly, contact the dealer where you purchased the unit. They can replace it under warranty.

Best regards.

Will the light turn green on the ht1000 charger when the battery is charged? how long does it take?


It depends on the type of charger, a rapid-charger would charge a battery in one hour or less and the green light would come on when battery fully charged. A slow charger will take up to 16 hours to charge a battery and has red light only.

Problem charging


If you are referring to a flashing yellow light on the charging base, this is an error code. Either the 1) battery is bad, 2) not making good contact in the charger, or 3) very very low on charge. The solution for this set of problems is as follows: 1) have the company you purchased them from replace them, 2) clean your contacts with a pencil eraser, 3) leave the battery on the charger with the yellow light flashing for an hour or two. If the battery is just very low on a charge, it will come back to life and the light will change to be constant. If the battery is bad or shorted out, the light will continue to flash and you will need to get with the vendor you purchased the batteries from.

Other things which come to mind are compatibility issues such as you are using a different battery chemistry than you had before. NiCd batteries can charge on either of the two chargers available for the P110 (slow rate or fast rate). However, NiMH and Li-Ion batteries require a fast rate charger.

If you are referring to a yellow blinking light on the radio while it is in the charger. You need to shut your radio off. Radios should always be turned off when charging. If the radio is left on you will never have a full charge. Also, if you inadvertently press the PTT while the radio is turned on, while on a charger, you can cause damage to the radio.

FYI: There is no light to show "out of range" on the radio, unless you are possibly using a trunking or repeater system. A blinking light on your radio indicates the radio is turned on and/or there is traffic on your frequency. Your charger base light can be red, yellow or green. This indicates the charge cycle status. Flashing most always means some type of error.

1. isthe battery charging 2.isthe charger


You don't mention a make or model, so I can only give you general solutions. If the radio has a drop-in charger there may be a light to indicate charging. If the light comes on when the radio is in the charger, it's getting a charge. If you have a multimeter, DVM, or DC voltmeter you can check the battery voltage (charge) both before and after a charging cycle. You can also use the meter to confirm the output from the charger. If possible, replace the batteries with standard alkaline types and see if the radio works. I hope this info helps.

Wont charge


Usually when a rechargable  battery won't take a charge it need to be replaced.  I have had good luck purchasing replacement phone batteries on ebay but you can also try a local phone store or Radio Shack.  Its possible your charger is bad but it is usually a bad battery as they have a finite life where the chargers seem to work forever unless damaged by being dropped
