Hello: I'm new here and will make my first post a question. Recently, a friend's widow gave me four (4) SMR Sea Lab 9600 handheld vhf marine
radios. The radios have not been used for at least 7 years. They were used for about 5 days per year over a five year period.
Of course, the batteries,12v/600 mah nicad battery
10 packs, dated 10/11/93, were cold stone dead. However, after a 16 hour charge, all of the radios functioned perfectly. My question is twofold: Does anyone know anything about the quality of these units and perhaps more important, are battery replacements
available anywhere? Any and all input would be appreciated. Thanks, Stoneybroke
