It's difficult to open the Vertex packs without ruining them. FNB27 is widely available on eBay or you can get them from manufacturers such as W&W in Hicksville NY online. I don't know if anyone has made them in Lithium Ion yet.

I have a problem with a yaesu ft470. When I turn it on it stays for 3 sec. then shuts off. The battery says they are fully charged.


Hi Fred,

What type of battery are you using?

Is it Nicad or Li-ion?

There are batteries and there are batteries, some good some bad.

If you're using Nicad battery, then that is likely to be the culprit.
Nicad types have a memory issue, where if you re-charge before the battery goes completely flat, they will only recharge from the point of the previous charge, that in simple terms means, not fully.

and the more you charge them without being fully drained, the more memory they keep, and the less of a charge they get.

The bast batteries I can recommend are Li-ion or Lithium batteries, these are designed for equipment with high power use as in radios, Laptops and of course the cell phone, to mention a few.

These do not have memory issues and last longer than most and are available as rechargeable, sure they cost a little more, but what price for quality.

I hope that this is the issue you are having, and that I have helped you.

Cheers,
Peter

How do i repair nicad battery


There is no repair, batteries fail, you have to replace them. the bad deal is that you can replace the drill with a new one for about the same $ or less.

My old black & decker power screw driver will not accept a charge. I cannot get it charged up.


Black & Decker stopped doing battery packs for the older screwdrivers, like the 9018, some time ago so you cannot get them.

However you can still buy replacement NiCad, Sub C, 1.2v, tagged batteries that will do the job on the older 2.4v models as NiCad batteries for use in power tools are exempt under the European ban on importing NiCad batteries where used in power tools (Specific Exemption).

When you open up the screwdriver look at the positioning of the batteries and the tags/connectors and solder them together the same way.

So all you need is a soldering iron to join the centre tags together and then trim the end tags, top and bottom, to the width of the live/negative connectors and you have got a new battery pack.

It doesn't have to be pretty but after a small investment and a little effort it sure beats paying out £30 to £50 for a new screwdriver. I have done this for my older Black & Decker and Bosch screwdrivers which all work like new again.

Recently bought Craftsman Lithium battery & charger that failed.


Sounds like your charger is only for NiCad batteries. With most brands, the new Lithium chargers will also charge the old NiCads, but the old NiCad chargers will not charge the new Lithium batteries. You will be very happy with the lithiums once you are able to fix the problem. As for Craftsman, buy Craftsman hand tools such as wrenches and sockets but I'd look elsewhere for battery powered tools.

Battery won't hold its charge, could I get them replaced? Could I replace them myself? If so, with what type of battery?


Rechargeable shavers use either a NiCad or NiMd batteries.

In order to get the correct battery, you need to check your shaver model number and check the following link to see which your shaver uses.

http://www.electricshaverstore.com/search.asp?p=1&w=%5F&c=battery&t=s

You can buy it from them or find them elsewhere, if you wish.

You can do the repair yourself if you can disassemble the shaver case, which is usually held together with a couple of screws normally hidden behind plastic caps.

Then once the shaver covers are off, you can unsolder the old batteries and replace and resolder the new one in. You'll need a decent soldering iron to accomplish this.

When done, put the case back together and allow it to charge for a good 8 hours before using. It typically takes a few recharges to get the batteries able to hold a full charge, but you should be good after a week of use.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Midland radio battery pack constant vibrate


Hello pjbracht, I just responed to a duplicate of your problem. If they are new, return the battiers and confirm they are "by the book" replacements. If so ask for replacemrnts with a higher mAhr. It is not correct for vibration from a battery pack, lead, NiCad, Ni-MH, period.

Types of batteries.


You can use AA disposable batteries (alkaline or lithium) or rechargeable (NiMH or Nicad) batteries. Lithium batteries last much longer, but are generally quite a bit more expensive than alkaline batteries. You should never mix old and new batteries or different types of batteries. If you use Nicad batteries, it is recommended that you use a Nicad conditioning charger to extend the life of the batteries. Note: If you use rechargeable batteries, you will need a battery charger. The camera's AC power supply does not recharge batteries.
