Question about Uniden BC72XLT Handheld Scanner

1 Answer

I have a Uniden BC60XLT-1 Scanner it has its 12v cigarette lighter supply but no AA Nickel Cadmium Rechargable .Batteries. All retail stores I check with Radio Shack etc. say they have quit making these batteries. Is a Ni-MH AA battery compatable to work for recharging with my power supply for my scanner. And if so do you put the switch to the Ni-CD side?

The two battery types are completely interchangeable. Set the charger for NiCd and the NiMH will charge faster and last longer than the NiCds did.

Unable to locate Olympus (B-01 4PE) Ni-MH rechargable batteries, for my Olympus D-395 digital camera. Unable to locate CR-V3X1 or LR6X2 at any retailer.


You don't need to use Olympus batteries. The D-395 uses two standard AA batteries, either disposables or alkalines. You should be able to find AA batteries at just about any department store, drugstore, electronics store, office-supply store, or supermarket.

I purchased a Meade DS-90AT at a garage sale but it is missing the battery pack (the holder for 10 AA batteries). I called Meade and learned it is no longer available. Any suggestions as to what I can...


You can use any 12 volt power pack like a car starter battery pack-- with the proper cigarette lighter style power cord.

Just buy one with a cigarette lighter style plug-in port- 12 volt-- you can find these at auto parts stores for about $49.

What kind of rechargeable batteries should i use in my bc60xlt

Well i tried to take a picture and i took it and then it turned off once i took the picture


Sounds like the batteries.

Digital cameras are noteably, very demanding power suckers.
If they don't have brand new batteries, they shut off.

They requre top brand (Energizer or Duracell) batteries, and once they are used for even a short time; they will not be enough either.
(Dont' throw them out though, other less demanding things like Remote controlls will gladly use them for years)

The best bet is to use Rechargeable batteries, or have a $100/month budget for duracells.

Statistics you will need to look for in Rechargeable batteries are:

Type; Nickel Cadmium (Ni-Cd) or Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH)

The Metal Hydride rechargeable battery is best since it charges faster and retains it charge longer, the old fashioned Nickel Cadmium battery used to be the best, but not any longer.

Rating: 900mAh; 1800mAh; 2200mAh; others not mentioned.

Unimportant note: The mAh means Milli Amphere Hours, which means how much power the battery cell will hold when fully charged. It is measured in Ampheres (Amps) per Hour, or in this case Milliamperes (1/1000 of an amp), but that's not important to know; all rechargeable batteries are rated by this number.

The number of mAh's you want are about 1000 or more,

Generally it's the more mAh's you have the more you can take pictures. Such as 900mAh will get about 50 to 250 pictures, but 1800mAh will get you twice as much.

Last note on Rechargable batteries: Only use a LiMH charger for LiMH batteries, and use a NiCd Charger for NiCd batteries.
If a charger dosn't say what type of batteiries it charges, it's the old fashioned NiCd (Nickel Cadmium) from the 1900's when that was the only type of rechageable battery.

Good luck with your Digital Camera.

Uniden bearcat bc60xlt-1 channels wont unlock


Channels have to be programmed with a frequency before the scanner will allow them to be unlocked. The L/O indicator should automatically turn off once a frequency is in memory.
