Re: ca-45c wall charger

The Ca45 ac adapter is a regular ac adapter. You can pick up any AC adapter at any electronic store as long as you take these pre cautions in effect.
Note the DC Voltage output of the adapter. The radio should note what voltage is needed.
Note the polirity of the plug that plugs in the side of the radio. The poliraty will either be negitive ( - ) or positive ( + ). On the radio where the plug inserts should say whether the poliarity is negitive or positive.
Note the current ( amperage, or ma output of the adapter ) you purchase. You should look for at least 1/2 amp ( 500 ma ). Any less may heat up and burn out the adapter.
I hope this has helped.

The back unit of charger will not charge radio?

common. The contacts are dirty most likely. Unplug the charger, get a small piece of fine or extra fine sandpaper and lightly sand the metal wires you see. They will bend, that is normal. So, slow and careful. Still not working? (also common). The charger base or the charger AC adapter may be bad. If you have another charger, switch the wall adapters. If the base if base, you could try to take it apart and re soldier it yourself, but if it got wet, the game is over. Go to a used donation place, such as the Goodwill to get replacements. They are not sold new without a radio. Also, try another radio in the "bad" charger, it could be the contacts on the back of the radio need cleaning.

The dual charger does not charge the batteries

Simply fix the wall wart. AE6JI 704-745-2067 Extra Class FCC VEC +45 years practical electronics.

There is a fine wire, (under the paper wrapping) or on the transformer, re-close, and it will work 99% of the time.

WARNING random wall warts WILL vary, up to 200% of what their rating label states!

Next time do not have the wall wart plugged into the Wall AC, until AFTER you plug it into the radio.

What is the polarity of the jac/mic so I can charge rechargeable batteries by ACDC adaptor


On you're AC adapter unit, there should, if it's a good one, have a switch with a + & - signs indicating the polarity you require to use.

Further to this, does your radio have an AC recharge point. Some of these units don't have this capability, but in your case it may.

This is usually found on the side of the radio.

If there is no such point, then what you need is to buy rechargeable batteries with the appropriate charger, you can't just use any charger for these batteries, else you'll damage them.

I hope this helps you.

Best regards,

I need charger for netset pro44 scanning receiver please

  • Hi, i can help.

  • The original is not really gonna be find-able. But there is a DC/DC and AC/DC power cord that are the replacement for them.

  • For AC/DC you can go anywhere and get a 9VDC - 300 mA AC/DC wall wart with a 1.3 mm / 3.4 mm. plug. Radios Shack have gone to selling universal wall worts and selling the tips for them separate. So if you go to radio shack use tip "H" along with the spec I listed above. They will know which one if you give them that info.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

What is the dc input voltage for a 7.5V NTN1171A charger for a MTX838?

The book list the wall adapter to charger NTN1171 as being part number 2580162R01. The description says 13.8VDC 1.5A AC ADAPTER. When googling the part number, it appears someone is selling one on eBay for around $29.99. Retail from Motorola appears to be $125.

Lost power supply


If the desktop charger is the version that can accommodate two radios simultaneously similar to the T5000, then the AC wall adapter or the power supply is 9 volts AC.

Good luck and kind regards.

Need to replace DVE AC Adapter


If your desk charger is the version that can accommodate 2 units for simultaneous charging, any wall adapter would do as long as it is rated at 9VAC @ 450mA or higher. Since most wall adapters are DC output, you need to open it and remove the diode(s) and capacitor and connect the output of the secondary straight to the wires. Additionally, you need to get one whose plug will match the jack of the desk charger.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Low battery icon on Midland LXT350 walkie-talkies

Your LXT350 is equipped for using an optional rechargeable NiMH battery pack which can be recharged by inserting the AC adapter into the radio charge jack, or with the optional desktop charger.

I would make sure the radio is off, then insert the charger. Charge only for the prescribed time (no more/no less) and remove from the charger.

Charge time is initially 24 hours. Charge time is about 12 hours thereafter. For maximum battery life, it is recommend charging the battery pack when the low battery icon comes on. Remove the radios from the charger when the charge time expires.
