If your rechargeable battery pack takes a different battery tray than the alkaline, you possibly have a bad connection in the battery tray. If they appear to use the same battery contacts, look at where the rechargeable battery touches compared to the alkaline. There may be a problem in this area. Clean all contacts with a pencil eraser to insure your radio is free of debris on the contacts.

Best regards.

SOURCE: configuring audiovox GMRS1072CH walkie talkie

With the issue of 240V if the charger has not a Voltage switch, you will need to find another charger/transformer with the same Voltage/Amps ouput that works with 240V.

For Vox operations, this feature works independly form channel, you should choose the channel# and code # first, to match both radios, and get them communicate, then the Vox feature.
In Some radios the VOX feature works with an external audio accesory, in other radios works with out it.
Basically if this radios works without it, you should see that the radio transmist by itself when you speak direct to the radio, and stops transmiting 1 or2 seconds after you stop talking.

Good Luck.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: One of my tlkr-t3 walkie talkie's will not recieve.

You have your interference code eliminator set differently on the two radios. Here is a link to the T5 user guide (sorry I didn't have a link to the T3, but they should be very similar): http://www.gouldelectronics.co.uk/product-downloads/T5-20Manual-20EU.PDF

SOURCE: I am trying to pair my motorola walkie talies

Here is a link to the user guide: http://www.motorola.com/mdirect/manuals/SX700_userguide.pdf

You will need to program the frequency, code and Qt filter (if any) to match. For basic operation set the frequency and then set the code and Qt filter (if any) to off (zero).

Best regards.

Cobra microtalk will not charge

this is the sign of a damaged or dead battery pack. they can be rebuilt at Batteries Plus or replaced. I would also try alkaline batteries in the radio before spending money on new battery packs. Most rechargeable battery packs must be kept charged regularly, and should be fully discharged before recharging, or they will be damaged and end up with a limited lifespan. IF you are handy with a multimeter you can check to see that the charger is putting voltage out by placing the probes on the contacts while it is plugged in. especially if the cord is twisted or looks stretched, but generally it is the battery not the charger.

Low batter warning

Hi Kathy,

Wakie talkies are low powered, cheap toys for kiddies to play with.
Having said that, the problem is that you need to try using rechargeable batteries or lithium batteries.
These radios eat batteries, so the better the battery type, (more expense), the longer they last. I would advise that use be restricted to short periods at a time and to remove the batteries when not in use. Better still pay for a real CB radio and not have these problems.
CB radios can be obtained on ebay (Brand New), from as little as $125.00, the units come with lithium rechargeable battery packs and charger.

Cheers,
Peter

Is it ok to leave our walkie talkies in the dual charger on weekends etc or does it damage the rechargeable battery packs?

The charger should have a built in circuit that will shut off when fully charge, but if it doesn't then the battery will feel supper hot and it is bad to over charge batterys and packs. It cut down on life time.

I have the cobra micro talk with rechargeable batteries my workers plug them up every night and get them in the morning but some arestill saying low battery, does the walkie talkie need to be turned off...

they charge better if they are turned off. since they do not have a paid dedicated channel, signals can

still be received by any walkie talkie using the same channel, and can deplete the charging process

to the radio. good luck!

Walkie talkie batteries don't last

What you have been using are consumer grade walkie talkies. The rechargeable battery packs in them should last a full business day, unless you are in a high use area. This being said, it is also possible you might need to replace the rechargeable battery pack as they usually have just a one year life expectancy. As they start to fail they will go less and less time in a day.

To answer your question about a radio which will go a full business day, any of the business division Motorola handheld radios would work. Radios such as the CP110, BPR40, CP185, and CP200 are all make to go a full day and sometimes more. Their battery packs depending on chemistry would also need to be replaced every 18-24 months.

Best regards.

It came with battery i assume are rechargable but when plugged in there is no sign that they are charging and when you take them off the charger they die in a few seconds

It looks like some of these came with alkaline battery backs, some with rechargeables, and some with no batteries. The rechargeable packs will be marked "NiMH" with the part number FA-BD on them. If yours are the rechargeable types they probably need to be replaced. You can also power the units with 4 AAA alkaline batteries.
