Wharfedale orb cordless phone - battery problem

I have a wharfedale orb single digital cordless phone. The rechargeable batteries supplied with it are no longer lasting for very long, so I bought some new rechargeable batteries of the same spec (AAA 850mAh NIMH) but they don't work in the handset. Any suggestions?

The positive terminals on AAA batteries come in different heights, with the greatest 3 times the size of the smallest. All DECT phones that use AAA including Wharfedale will only take the ones with the highest terminal. Others will not make contact. Warren.

How can I get new batteries

Normally in the BT range the batteries are rechargable, hence the base charger, so do not use ordinary batteries. If the phones are not charging, go to boots or tesco and buy AAA rechargeables 2 per handset. Once replaced allow at least 6 hours charge before use. After that just carry on as normal.

Wharfedale cordless phone

Try the Portable phone category. All I can add , if the battery is connected correctly, perhaps the battery is the incorrect model, it's defective, or the charger is bad. return battery for a replacement. It happens all the time with Laptop, some aftermarket batteries are counterfeit, inexpensive copies.
