No, not unless you have a battery adapter.

The battery will fit, but the charging contacts are lower on the battery. So years ago the trick was to put some quarters under the radio, so it’s raised 1/4-3/8”. Then the contacts will line up.

Thats awesome! Thanks for the tip, I just need to be able to charge it enough to turn it on and test it.

I once had a charger go out and ended up making a mold since I was into the 1/18 scale models craft work wasn't a issue. Just did a mold then made a plastic adapter.

I haven't got much into the 3d printing but I've seen some create some interesting things for radios including a modified ht1250 housing that was taller.
