Battery not charging - Motorola GP300 Compatible 2 Way Radio Battery Eliminator
The batteries not charging only means 2 things. the cells in the battery are at their end of life, or the charger's power output is going low because of worn coils or burnt coils.Best deal is to get both pieces tested so you'll have an idea on which one to replace.
Battery Care Tips
These battery tips will help you obtain optimized performance and a
longer life cycle from your Motorola rechargeable battery.
Charge your new battery overnight before using it. This is referred to
as INITIALIZING and will enable you to obtain maximum battery capacity.
a. Nickel Cadmium or Nickel Metal Hydride: 14-16 hours. b. Lithium
Ion/Polymer: 1 to 2 additional hours after the charger light turns
2. New Motorola impres
batteries, when inserted into a Motorola impres charger, will indicate
a calibration cycle by displaying a steady Yellow< indication on the
charge status indicator. Allow this calibration process to complete by
not removing the battery from the charger until it has completely
charged and displays a steady green indication.
In order to minimize capacity loss and cycle life reduction, new, NON
INITIALIZED batteries must be stored in well ventilated, cool and dry
locations. Batteries stored in these conditions may be stored:
a. Nickel Cadmium up to 2 years.
b. Nickel Metal Hydride up to 18 months.
c. Lithium Ion/Polymer up to 18 months.
used batteries are to be removed from service for extended periods
(greater than 30 days) they should be discharged to about 50% of their
capacity before storage in a cool, dry location.
5. Batteries which have been in storage for more than two months should
be fully discharged and recharged.
a. Nickel Cadmium or Nickel Metal Hydride: 14-16 hours.
b. Lithium Ion/Polymer: 1 to 2 additional hours after the charger light turns green.
When using a Motorola rapid charger, leave the battery in the charger
for an additional 1 to 2 hours after the steady green light appears.
(Applies to non-impres batteries only.)
Do not leave your radio and fully-charged battery in the charger when
not charging. Continuous charging will shorten battery life. (Do not
use charger as a radio stand.)
Only charge a battery when it needs it. If it is not fully discharged,
do not recharge it. We suggest that you carry a spare. This is the most
cost effective solution for users requiring longer operating time.
Do not return fully charged non-impres batteries to the charger for an
"extra boost." This action will significantly reduce cycle life.
Repeated short cycle charging of non-impres batteries will shorten
battery life. (Do not use charger as a radio stand for non-impres
10. Stabilize batteries to room temperature (72ºF) before charging. Charging below 40ºF and above 104ºF will decrease cycle life. Read More At : GP300 Compatible 2 Way Radio Battery Eliminator...
