SOURCE: manual and battery charger needed

I'm still looking for the manual (?).. it's more of a pamplet as I recall.

The battery charger is...
AC/DC Adapter Model 0750200DF
Specs are:

120 V AC 60 Hz to 7.5 /v 200ma

If you can't find the right adapter, you can probably get one of the universal adapters that will work.

I also recommend that you replace the batteries with "Brand New Original Pair Battery For FreeWalker RD-810, RD-820, RD-008, RD-820 Features
***Brand New Original Pair Battery For FreeWalker RD-810, RD-820, RD-008, RD-820***
Best replacement battery for FreeTalker Walkie-Talkie RD-810, RD-820, RD-008, RD-820.
Crafted with latest Lithium-Ion technology, it is intended to delivers long lasting talk times.
This Li-Ion based battery provides power in a thin, short and light package, fits the compatible

for getting."

Much more talk time than the original batteries.

Battery charging


Only the Li-Ion batteries designed to work with the radio can be charged inside the radio. If you have Li-Ion rechargeable batteries such as those you can buy along side the
Alkalines in a store, the answer is no. This type would need to be charged in the style of charger made for recharging this brand/type of battery

Motorola radius cp200


Not any recalls on this product. However, here are a few tips which may help:
1) There are 4 types of CP200 batteries: Li-Ion, Li-Ion Slim, NiMH, and NiCD. Due to the differing thicknesses Motorola provides an insert which can be turned around to accommodate the battery (or batteries) you have with your radio. When you look at the charger you will see two plastic ears sticking up beyond the charge cup. When you squeeze these ears toward one another you can lift the insert up and out of the charger. Turn the insert around according to which battery thickness you have. Then snap the insert back into the charging base. Your battery should rest and depress the spring loaded charge contacts in the base.
2) The insert has rails which guide the battery into place. You can see on your battery sides there are grooves which match the shape of the rails. In the beginning when all parts are new you must be very purposeful to slide the battery into place, but as the battery and charger begin to have more use you will find it easier to slide.
3) The CP200 charger can accommodate a radio with a battery on it, or a battery alone. (Tip: Always be certain the radio is turned off while on the charger.)
4) The only issue we have every seen customers experience with the CP200 charger is from rough handling. An internal plastic piece which holds the charge contacts in place can be broken if users are very rough when putting the radio in the charger. This is rare, but is known to happen.
Hope this helps.
Best regards.

Low battery on a tk3202 two way radio


Hi Patrick,

Are you using rechargeable Ni-Cad batteries?

If so, buy Li-ion Batteries, Ni-cads have a memory and will recharge from last charge only, rather than fully charge.

Lithium Ion Li-ion batteries don't have memory issues, and therefore will recharge fully.

These are available as rechargeable types so, look for the rechargeable types.

I hope this has been helpful.

Best regards,
Peter

Extending the battery life?


Hi,

You have a Motorola CP-680, so that's the Make/Model of the radio.

You haven't informed me as to the type of battery you have powering the set. Is it a battery pack?, is it battery cells and if so what type of cells....AA or AAA? or whether it's a rechargeable type, i.e,. Nicad, Lithium, NMh, this info is required so we can quickly provide the answer, Having said all that, I'll do something I don't like doing, and take a guess....

Because it's a GP series radio, It may in fact be a battery pack, therefore it will either be NiCad or Li-ion. That being the case, you must have a battery charger that came with your radio. If you have a NiCad battery Pack, that is the culprit, as these batteries retain memory between each charge, and unless you completely drain all power from them, before recharging, you will not be getting a fully charged battery, as these will only top up the charge from the previous charge, if you follow my drift.

Better to buy Li-ion battery pack specific to your radio, as these don't have a memory issue, these are available on ebay for a reasonable price.

I hope you've understood my explanation, and that my advice has been useful.

Regards,
Peter

Motorola FV200R Talkabout dosent turn on


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

Motorola CP040 charging time


The rapid rate charger WPLN41__ will typically charge a battery in 90-120 minutes. Your battery should be depleted or nearly depleted when you place it in the charging stand. Be certain your radio is always turned off, when charging an attached battery. The NiMH battery will generally go 12-16 hours on a charge when new. If you work an eight hour shift, you might see if the radio will go 2 days on a charge. Later as the battery ages, you will need to charge it nightly. (Think of putting it in the charger as putting it to bed at night.)

Rapid charging is necessary on NiMH and Li-Ion batteries. They require a "hotter" charger, a fast rate, to completely charge the battery. It will not harm this chemistry of battery. It is safe to leave the battery on the charger overnight, or for a weekend. We would not recommend leaving the battery on the charger longer periods of time, as that will age the battery and reduce its life.

(Sidenote: Frequent rapid charging will however reduce the life of a NiCD battery.)

Battery volts check


With the battery fully charged, you can us a volt meter. Touching the wands to two separate battery contacts. (I believe it to be the outter two. But you will be able to tell from the reaction of your meter.) If it show you a negative number, simply reverse your wands.

On the CLS1410 and its sister the VL50, there is a battery indicator built into the radio. It will show you on the screen how much charge is in the batteries. Also, with this style of radio, you are using a Li-Ion battery, which will last you about 12-14 months before you need to replace it.

There is a date code on the white portion of the battery label. It is sometimes hard to discern. But if you look you'll see the year followed by the month and date. If the radio was fresh from Motorola when you bought it. The battery date should coincide with its true initial charge age.

Flashing yellow light when charging


Clean your battery contacts with a pencil eraser and see if this clears up the problem. If not, your batteries may be needing replaced. When batteries get old or are shorting out this is common. Rechargeable 2-way radio batteries have the following life expectancies. NiCd 18-24 months; NiMH 14-18 months; and Li-Ion 12-14 months.
