Question about Philips Avent Basic Baby Monitor w/ DECT Technology
My wife and I have the same monitor in the picture on this FixYa site. The battery pack is basically two AAA nickel metal hydride rechargeable batteries. Remove the old battery pack. Cut the paper that binds the batteries and plastic pieces in place. We bought a pack of rechargeable batteries at Radio Shack. I cut a piece of metal coat hanger about 2/3" long. I then bent it in half forming a squashed U. I placed the piece of hanger in the "top" (w/o holes) piece of plastic and placed the new batteries in the plastic piece (realize that the RH battery needs to have "+" down and the LH battery (-) down). I also slid the bottom piece onto the batteries too. I used some electrical tap to hold the batteries and plastic pieces together (wrapped around the assembly). Snap it in...it will fit slightly tighter than the original, but will work just fine. One could possibly forgo the hanger piece and maybe use some aluminum foil. I figured the coat hanger is a better conductor.

cold be intefernce from any other electronic device... potentially at a neighbours. even though mifddle of the night, could be microwave, kettle, electric blanmket, heaitng system, etc etc ... any appliance. If on the 2.4ghz wavelength could also be a computer wireless network nearby? good luck with finding and isolating - worst case, take it back and get one on the 1.8ghz ... which is reserved for these devices, and cordless phones, etc

This is not a solution. :(
In Toronto, or indeed anywhere!? I am with you, Pao, the silly parent unit battery (which is a simple wiring case around 2 AAA batteries) can't be purchased anywhere, as far as I can tell. Yet it's so simple, it must be identical to something else out there.
If I find out what, I'll post it here.

Tips for a great answer:
Your battery may be flat. It may take up to 1 hour before you can use your baby monitor again. If this happens, we recommend that you fully recharge your battery before use.
Hope this helps. Let me know by rating this solution. Thanks!
