Usualy when you have that type of problem it is because the battery is shot. As you indicated the charge light shows good but the minute you draw or try to draw current ( power ) by activating the radio the battery does not have enough life left in it.

Charge time cobra 235 recharge batteries


Hi! I've got a different cobra model and I find it ridiculous, but there is no indication when the batteries are fully charged... Either use external charger for your batteries or just leave it plugged in overnight- that would ensure full charge (it does in my case, I've checked batteries with multimeter)

How do i charge my cobra hand held radio


According to Cobra's website, if you are charging the batteries (or battery pack) that came with the radio, charging should take about 15-hours.

If your model came with the desktop charging stand, they state that it is safe to leave them in the stand without fear of over-charging. If your model uses a power cord that you plug into the radio, then they state that you should not leave it connected to the charger for more than 24-hours.

If you follow the link below, it will take you to the Cobra website, where you should be able to download a copy of the manual for your radio. Find your model in the list, then select the "Details" button for that model. A new page will open then select the "Product Specifications" tab, and you will find a link to download the manual.

Cobra pr 3850wx bought new NiMh 800mAh 1.2v rechargable batteries now the base charger lights won't come on when i put the radios in it


  • A Cobra 3850wx Radio requires 4x600mAh NiMH 1.2V AAA Part # GA-3ANH rechargeable batteries.
  • Not just any AAA rechargeable battery will charge in the unit.
  • All will work in the radio but not all will charge inside the radio. It has to be a specific battery.
  • This is an example of what you need. GA-3ANH batteries which will charge inside your radio. http://www.tomsawyer2wayradios.com/catalog/item/3823249/5076887.htm

I HAVE PURCHASE THE TWO WAY RADIO CXT175 THEY WANT CHARGE I NEED HELP


There is no charging indicator on your radios, but after the charger is connected and plugged into a wall outlet for approximately 15 hours, the battery status indicator should show a full charge. If this is not happening you may have a defective charger or charging circuit, and you should contact Cobra via their Customer Service number, 773-889-3087, or through their web site, www.cobra.com.

My walkie talkies will not charge wheni place them on my charger, whywont it work


If neither of them work, then that would suggest something common to both... the Charger? Are you sure it is OK? Is it making good connection, give them a clean/scrape. Otherwise it could be dicky batteries, they go faulty all the time & for no apparent good reason.

Charging batteries


the cobras are meant to work with alkaline cells. You bought nicads which are a lower voltage per cell (1.2 to 1.38). Alkalines are about 1.55-1.58

That is why your rechargeables only show a quarter charge, because their terminal voltage is lower and the radio thinks they are not fully-charged.

Cobra PR3850WX will not recharge batteries


There is a contact in the upper left hand corner of the batt compartment.This has to touch the metal of the last batt.If your batts have paper around them scrape it off where it contacts that contact point.
