The Flashing "1/4 Battery" indicator is not a "Battery Gauge". It is a Low Battery indicator. When you charge your system overnight, it will continue to flash up to 5 seconds after you unplug your handi-talkie. This is normal.

The flashing 1/4 battery indicator will flash the whole time you are charging.

SOURCE: Manual for Cobra Micro Talk CXT 275 Manual

I have this manual. I looked online at the Cobra site for a digital copy, and the manual for the CXT225 is a very close match. I checked it page by page and only found one small difference in the section on charging the battery. (Don't leave it on the charger more than 24 hours). Here's the link to the CXT225 manual: https://www.cobra.com/downloads/manuals/CXT225_MANL.pdf

Garage sale bargain!! NO Manual Guide Book for Cobra Micro Talk -CXT 195.. Please advise where to get one. Thank you


Many Cobra two-way radio manuals are available from the manufacturer: https://www.cobra.com/support/product-manuals . Use the drop-down menu to select two-way radios. I found the CXT195 on the sixth page of these manuals. The direct link to the manual is https://www.cobra.com/sites/default/files/manuals/CXT195_MANL.pdf .

I hope this helps.

CXT 195. What amp charger to use?


Do you mean 145? I cannot find a 195 on their web site. The CXT 145 comes with a USB Y charger cable, designed to charge off a USB port. Use a high output USB adapter. Amps of 1 to 3 should work fine. You are using rechargeable NiMh batteries and they do not care as long as it is at least 1 amp. Higher amp will charge a bit faster and make the batteries hotter.

Can a Motorola talk about 250 talk to a cobra CXT 195. They can hear me from the Motorola I just cant hear them


Your code (PL code, interference eliminator, quiet call) is not programmed the same on both radios. The Cobra appears to be set to open squelch (no code). Set your Motorola code setting to zero (off). This should solve the problem.

Package, manuel and receipt were accidentally thrown away and we don't know how to charge the radios. They work, but are running low on battery power! They have a power supply cord that you plug both...


From what I just read on the Cobra website, you may be misinterpreting the battery indicator lights:

My radio keeps showing low batteries

This may simply be a matter of misinterpreting the low-battery indicator. We use two different types of battery indicators:
  1. Battery Level Indicator: This battery indicator is always visible, and has several segments. When all the segments are lit, the batteries are full. When only the last segment is lit, the batteries are almost exhausted.
  2. Low Battery Indicator: This type is usually NOT visible. It only appears when the batteries are low, at which time it flashes on the display to warn you of a low battery condition.
Please note that when you turn on your radio it first performs a display test. Everything on the display will light up for a few seconds, including the Low Battery Indicator. This does not mean that the batteries are low. After a few seconds the display test will end, at which time the Low Battery Indicator should go away.

Here is a link to the Manual for your radio:

https://www.cobra.com/downloads/manuals/PR260WX_MANL.pdf

It is a PDF file, which requires that you have Adobe Reader or equivalent installed on your computer for it to open and display properly. If you don't have it, it can be found here (it's free!):

Good luck!

My walkie talkies will not charge wheni place them on my charger, whywont it work


If neither of them work, then that would suggest something common to both... the Charger? Are you sure it is OK? Is it making good connection, give them a clean/scrape. Otherwise it could be dicky batteries, they go faulty all the time & for no apparent good reason.
