Like cell phones, it is amazing that a replacement battery costs almost the same as a new radio.

Sometimes the battery pack has to be cut, pried, or chewed open. Depends on whether they were screwed shut, glued shut, welded shut, and just how well.

And since you'd usually have to weld (not solder) cells together to rebuild the pack...best to send it out to someone who can do the whole thing, if you're not familiar with it or willing to sacrifice the first pack to experience.

Right on!!! I purchased a new one, radio that is a few years ago. Smaller, water proof, newer technology for just about the same price as a new battery would cost not including the shipping fees.

You should do the same also

Instead of buying $65 worth of ink cartridges for my printer, I just ordered a new color laser printer for $129. I figure the laser printer will print minimum of 5x as many pages as the ink carts.

Oh, and the cost of replacing the toner carts on the laser? In excess of $200. I don't think I'll be buying any.

Re: Standard Handheld VHF Battery Replacement

My question is , is this the actual tray ? Does it come apart somehow to allow for normal AA batteries or is the tray a separate part entirely (that may not have been included when I purchased). Even the picture on the box doesn't show an additonal part so I'm thinking I just havent figured out how to use the battery tray. Thanks !
