Question about Motorola Mag One BPR40 Two Way Radio
My Mag One BPR40 radio does not turn on, the charge light on the charger lights up, but after 90mins+ the unit does not power on. I have switched batteries from the other units to see if it was a battery problem, but it turns out to be the unit. Help.
SOURCE: Red light flashing
It is either defective, or it has something touching one of the contacts causing a short. It would be best to replace the charger. Typically they are somewhat like a light bulb, they will burn out over time and need replaced.

The charger which comes with the BPR40 is a rapid charger. (The book doesn't indicate if it is a 90 min. or 3 hour charger.) None-the-less, your battery is fine. When your charger is displaying green it will continue to trickle (slow) charge the battery to keep it topped off, so to speak. The first 3 charge cycles you should leave the battery on the charger the full recommended time. On most Motorola radios it is 10-12 hours. This will assure your battery is charged to full capacity and initiated properly. In most cases, your traditional charging of the radio should be overnight. When you go to bed, put the radio to bed on the charger.
FYI: All batteries come from the factory with some charge in them. It is a small test charge to assure the battery's funcationality.
If for some reason after the first week or so, you think your battery or charger is not functioning properly, contact the dealer where you purchased the unit. They can replace it under warranty.

It depends on the type of charger, a rapid-charger would charge a battery in one hour or less and the green light would come on when battery fully charged. A slow charger will take up to 16 hours to charge a battery and has red light only.

I bought these phones at a yard sale for $2.00, One phone powered up, the other did not. Of course the first thing you think is battery; right? Interestingly swapping the battery with the working ohone made no difference, the unit still would not turn on. After a close inspection, I noticed variation in the way and the shape in which the battery contactors were bent to make contact. I used a snall knife point and re-shaped the contacts into more of a vee shape, just like the ones on the working unit, I replaced the battery and the unit still did not turn on. I tried swapping batteries again and whala; the unit powered up and worked perfectly,
