1) Check your charge contacts to be certain they are free of debris, dust, film. Clean with a pencil eraser if needed.
2) Test radio with a known good battery.
3) If batteries are more than 2 years old replace them.
4) Check your programming on the radios, it is possible the batteries are charging, but the radios are not communicating due to a programming problem.
5) If you are still having a problem contact the dealer where you purchased the radios or the US supplier, Klein Electronics, 800-959-2899.

Best regards.

Where can I find a replacement 120v ac adaptor for a Thor X flashlight?

My Thor X 10 million candlepower spotlight takes a standard 12 volt, 1500 mA, center positive AC adaptor. You should be able to find one with an appropriate tip at any Radio Shack store, but you may find a cheaper universal adaptor at a Walmart or even at a "Dollar Plus" kind of store. An adaptor with a lower mA rating will take longer to charge your light, but it should still work (down to about 750-800 mA, I'm guessing).

Double-check the charging port of your Thor light to see whether there's any information about the input voltage requirements. On mine, the light itself has the charging port labeled for 12v, though I was reading the more detailed specifications off the adaptor itself. I can't recall whether the 2.5 million candlepower light also uses 12 volts of power (I think it does), or whether it takes 6 volts (a single battery vs. two batteries wired in series).

I went on holiday for about two months and my roommate said she turned the car once a week. when i returned, i tried to turn it on but the battery was dead. AAA came and jumpstarted it and it turned on...

Dead battery, but to know for sure the battery is the issue, it MUST be fully charged and then load tested...

Facts on batteries, if you draw it totally and completely down, many never return..

The reason for the battery charge is, for example, diodes in your alternator can fail, everything appears to work, but when the vehicle is off, there is a voltage leak to ground. To test, measure how much voltage and amperage is going out of the battery when the vehicle is off, pull negative and put meter in series at that point. Do not be fooled by radio and clock, and you may want to pull fuses until you get nothing drawing out of the battery....for testing

I bought a new Powerpack 300 and never had a use for it. It was plugged in for a year and when I decided to test it everything worked until I plugged in any AC appliance.. It just doesn't seem to have the...

Your battery is likely damaged from being plugged in for a year. The battery is a sealed lead acid battery inside, probably a 12 or 17AH job. Proper way to store a lead acid battery is to keep in cool dry location, and top off charge each month or two by charging according to manufacturer guidelines.

If you can figure out how to get into the case, you can replace the battery.

Won't turn on.

Try starting it up without the battery. Batteries can pickup a dead short which will cause a laptop not to start even though they show a full charge.
