Yes, it is likely you need new battery packs. The Li-Ion batteries have a 12-18 month life expectancy. They will sometimes go longer if the radios are charged and depleted at least once a month. This style battery should be available from your local Motorola dealer on online at Motorola. http://www.store.motorola.com/mot/en/US/adirect/motorola?cmd=catDisplayStyle&catKey=601560

How to use the motorola talkabout 101


The Talkabout 101 is a very basic walkietalkie radio. With good batteries installed in the battery compartment, you should be able to turn the radio on, and simply press the front-center push-to-talk (PTT) button and speak. Release the button after speaking so the other person can do the same to talk back to you.

If you are having trouble opening the battery compartment, pull down on the black u-shaped sides and the back portion of the radio will slide down with the u-shaped sides to reveal the compartment. (This would be one of the most common questions asked on this style radio.)

Best regards.

Commonly called the TalkAbout Basic. With the radio turned on hold in the monitor button. It should announce the current setting. Use the PTT button to change the setting. Press the monitor button to lock in your selection. When done shut the radio off and then turn it back on.

No, the charger is only usable to charge the rechargeable NiMH or Li-Ion battery which comes with the radio. Attempting to charge Alkaline rechargeable batteries with this charger could cause the to expode. If your charger is not charging the batteries which came with the units, it could be you do not have the charger cord end plugged in all the way, or the batteries dropped below the initial charge level by setting on a store shelf too long. Most TalkAbouts come with a cradle style charger to hold the radio, and a possible plug to plug into the charge hole. Check all connections, and clean any battery/charger contacts with a pencil eraser. To re-initialize the batteries you would need to attempt 3-5 charge cycles by charging for 8-10 hours, then letting the battery rest for 8-10 hours, repeating 3-5 times as needed. If this does not bring the battery back to life, you need to replace the batteries.

How to charge battery in Motorola Talkabout Distance DPS


You can obtain a wall adapter style charger for your radio at your local Motorola dealer, or online at http://www.eradiostore.com/cart/index.php?target=products&mode=search&subcats=Y&type=extended&avail=Y&pshort=Y&pfull=Y&pname=Y&epcode=Y&q=htn8232

Sidenote: The rechargeable battery is good for about 2 to 3 years. You can tell the age of your battery by looking at the date code on the back of the battery above the stop sign. The first number is the year, the next two numbers are the week of the year. 915 would be 2009 the 15th week. (Or if very old it could be 1999 the 15th week.) A good battery, when charged will go an 8-10 hour day.

Keep both of your charge trays, replacements for these are no longer available.
