Cobra VHF HH125

rechargeable batteries ran out. Tried 2 sets of Alkalines but it will not turn on.
Charged and works fine. Does this VHF not accept alkalines?

Welcome aboard CF, Plmvt.
It does accept alkalines - according to page 8 of the manual

Re: Cobra VHF HH125

Greetings and welcome aboard the CF, Plmvt.


And from page 1:
"... Five (5) rechargeable NiMH batteries supplied with the unit provide extended
operating time compared to alkaline batteries and have no memory effect.
Five (5) AAA alkaline batteries may also be used for emergency backup power ..."

Note the correct (alternating) polarity.
