Had to be creative

  • By Kevin from Fullerton CA USA on Wednesday, April 11, 2012
  • Pros: arrived quickly
  • Cons: won't fit on radio out of the box
  • Review: Received the battery pack, however I was unable to slide it on the unit. (Other posts had indicate that this was a problem). No matter how hard I tried it would only go on about half way. My solution was to remove the battery and components from the new case and install them in the old case. The old case (with the new battery) slide into place perfectly. It is unfortunate that the manufacturer hasn't figured out that the slide system doesn't work. Once the new battery was installed, my radio works perfectly. If you are not "mechanically inclined", this is going to be difficult and you may not be able to get your new battery pack on your radio.

Poor Battery Fit

  • By Craig from New Braunfels TX USA on Thursday, March 03, 2011
  • Review: Battery works just fine and powers the radio great. But ... it was a bear to get it to slide on the radio and now that it is on, I can't get it off again.

Works as advertised

  • By A Customer from Sacramento, Ca on Monday, August 06, 2007
  • Pros: Long life
  • Cons: doesnt match original color of radio, getting it on the radio first time was a nightmare
  • Review: I'm glad I purchased the battery. However, getting it on the radio the first few times was extremely difficult. Once it has been on/off the radio a few times, it slides smoothly and provides a good battery life.

Service Excellent, Freight Punitive

  • By Terence from Darley VIC Australia on Saturday, March 06, 2010
  • Pros: Comparative price, battery capacity
  • Cons: Freight cost from US to Australia
  • Review: Battery arrived in good time but the freight cost was excessive. The battery required considerable force to slide on the first time but capacity improved over original.

had issue with the product

  • By A Customer from Marblehead MA USA on Thursday, July 23, 2009
  • Pros: service was great and price was fair
  • Cons: had a major amount of difficulty in installing it in my handheld
  • Review: The replacement battery was received right on time. however it did not fit the handheld without a mjaor amount of puushing it into the unit. I am not sure I will be able to remove it without any effort, especially if in flight with the min amount of chop.
