Radio Shack Digital AM/FM Pocket Radio. Cat 12-489

Radio Shack digital AM/FM Pocket Radio. Cat number 12-489.
It is eating batteries (3 AAAs). I use it about 5 hours a day and the batteries only last about 5 days. I have had other pocket radios and the batteries (1 AA) lasted much longer.

Any noted defect with this model or radio?

Thanks.
Larry Bird

IS THERE A WAY I CAN PLAY IT IN MY CAR IN THE RADIO


Hello,

Yes, You will need to purchase a device called an FM transmitter, it plugs into the headphone jack and transmits the sound to your FM radio. The transmitter will have station settings, you just find a radio frequency that does not have a station in your area, set the transmitter to that and tune your radio to the same frequency. You can get the transmitters from Walmart electronics dept, Target, Sears, Amazon.com, Radio Shack and most other electronics retailers. The transmitters run about $12-20 and can be battery powered or plug into your car power outlet. Go to google.com and do a search for "MP3 FM transmitter" and you will see what they look like.

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

I bought a fm speaker adapter 12-2054 for my car to hook up my XM radio. It takes the place of the cassette insert to attach to the car speakers. It has fm stations 88.1 .3 .5 and .7 and 107-1 .3 .5 and .7...


I have the cigarette plug for this. I found it in my tech "graveyard" and didn't know what it was for, until I searched on the serial number.
If you want it, please let me know. You can have it for the mailing cost. I don't need it/don't want it.

You more than likely want the FM mode. If you are listening to a trunked agency then you will have to know if they are on the MOT, or EDACS system and choose the correct one.

How to charge battery


I think it recharges by taking some power from the computer when it is connected. I also use a cell phone charger from the razor series of phone.
