Default Need battery holder for Pro-60

Hello,

I am looking for a 6-AA battery holder for my old Pro-60. I believe the same battery holder was used in the Pro-43, and probably several other GRE made models. If you have an extra battery holder, or one in a broken scanner that you can give up, I'd be willing to give you $10 for it. PM me if you can help.

Dude, from another Pro-60 owner...THANKS! Mine has a little battery corrosion on it and a new one would be nice to have.

Hey, you wouldn't also happen to know if the RS part number '23-288-B' is in that RSU parts system would you??? It's the Nickel-Cadmium Rechargeable Battery for the Pro-60. Mine won't charge up anymore.

Don's know of a source for these battery packs. Due to the age of the batteries in the pack, I would not buy any of the original packs. I would take the old pack to a place like Batteries Plus and ask if they could rebuild the pack. The original packs are 7.2v 600 mAh Ni-Cd batteries. Rebuilding the pack with Ni-MH batteries would also give you longer operating time between charges.

Roger that. I'll just go the easy way and get the holder since there only $5, and combine it with some AA Ni-MH rechargables then.

Thanks again!


BTW, there is an 'WARNING' inside the Pro60 battery holder area which states "WARNING Charge only nickel cadmium batteries. Charging other types of batteries can cause them to burst resulting in personal injury and damage".

That was when there were only CarbonZink, Alkaline and Ni-Cd batteries. Ni-MH batteries had not been developed at that time. For that radio, I would take the NiMH batteries out and charge them in a NiMH charger. The internel charging circut was not made for the newer batteries.
