    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

BCD396T power source.

Hello fellow RR members. I am wondering where I can order more Ni-MH batteries (so that I can have extra batteries on hand). I was hoping that they would have use a Ni-MH battery but guess my wish didn't come true. By the way does anyone how the "life expectancy" of the batteries that come with the BCD396T?

The reason why I say that they should have went with the battery pack is because I plan on having my scanner on 24/7. I will never sleep. LOL.

Hi ShadowKnight,

Once again I get to put my 2 cents in....:) I have ordered many different batteries as well as the following 2 chargers below from www.thomas-distributing.com. I have had nothing but EXCELLENT service, prices, etc from this company. If nothing else, browse & see if anything meets ur needs. They have 'AA' Ni-MH up to 2900mAH, which is 600mAH more than the stock ones. I have some 2900, 2500 & 2300's I use in mine.

I'm no expert, but I'm pretty sure life expectancy will vary somewhat, obviously depending on hours of use. At home, I leave mine on the stock AC adapter. I leave the battery switch on 'alkaline' so the adapter doesn't change the batteries. That way I only use the battery power when in car or outside.

Hope this helps u some....
