Handheld VHF Standard Horizon Charger needed

I appealed to the classified ads but nothing so far.

Does anyone have a charger for a Standard Horizon HX280S handheld that they might be willing to part with?

kind regards,

John

I just did a search on eBay, and there are lots of them available in the $10-$20 range.

Thanks, yes, I've seen those. With each one there is about a $10 shipping charge to Hawaii so I have passed on those since a USPS small flat rate box is about $6 and I would expect to pay no more than $10 for the unit. I might be way out of line expecting to get off so cheaply but I'm hoping.

Thanks for your input.

kind regards,

SkiprJohn,

I shipped out the 12VDC and 110VAC chargers as well as the charging cradle for the HX280 today via USPS. Please let me know when you receive the requested chargers.

Jason

Thank you sir. The package arrived yesterday and thanks for the extra owner's manual too. I'll be able to use the radio on our safety boat for training today thanks to your unexpected and extremely quick response.
