Lightbulb Whistler 1010 and Pro 164 or Pro 97

Does anyone know if a Whistler 1010 replacement battery cover and battery holder sold on the Whistler site would fit a Radio Shack Pro 164 or 97?? Images look similar but was wondering if anyone specifically knew or owns a WS1010

I just bought the Whistler yellow battery holder (for rechargeable batteries) for my GRE PSR-300 scanner (the Pro-164 is a Radio Shack version of the PSR-300) and it fit perfectly ($9.95 vs the $22.00 they want on ebay).

I don't know about the battery cover but I would like to find out because I need that also. I could tell the holder would work by looking at the pictures. Not so sure about the battery cover. If you get one, please post if it fits and I will order one also.

Great! Thanks for the reply. I ordered the cover, holder and a power supply. I'll report back when I get them.

Thanks. I look forward to hearing whether it fits. Somehow my holder and battery cover got lost in a move. I'm sure they're around somewhere in one of a million unopened boxes, but I probably won't find it until 2028. I've got the battery holder held in with taped cardboard. Crude but effective, but I'd rather have a real battery cover.

UPDATE: They fit perfectly. I am so happy this is a viable source for these parts. Power adapter, Battery Cover and Battery Holder fit the pro - 164 and 97 radios. Very happy about the outcome.

Agreed! Thanks for letting us know. I'll order mine today.

Just wanted to mention that my battery cover arrived today and it fits my GRE PSR-300 perfectly. It is a slightly darker shade of black than the rest of the scanner, which is no biggie.

To recap, the battery cover and the battery holders for the Whistler WS1010 (https://whistlergroup.com/collection...er-accessories) fit the GRE PSR-300 scanner as well as the RS PRO-164 scanner. This is no surprise in retrospect because Whistler bought the assets of GRE (who also made scanners for Radio Shack).

It's possible they also fit the PRO-97 but this hasn't been verified.

Also, just to note, although it probably won't be of much interest to people on this forum, the non-swivel WS 1010 belt clip also fits the Whistler TRX-1. I got it because I found that the swivel version that comes with the TRX-1 was too bulky.
