I bet the folks on here can resolve this! In addition to other older and newer scanners, a friend of mine and I both have a circa-2005 Uniden BCD396T. Battery specs for it are 1.2V 2300mA. That information is not in the manual but is instead located in the battery compartment itself. “ONLY!" it warns. He says specs are specs; I say, well that was 2005. You’re not gonna hurt your scanner with higher milliamp hours as long as they’re 1.2V NiMH’s. My BCD396T has had no problems in the past nine years. He says I’m just lucky because the Uniden charger (Model AD-1001) is designed for 2300 mA and I‘m wasting my money on NiMH’s with higher mA. And yet, I get lots more use out of mine with higher mA batteries than he does. Thoughts? Thanks.

You are right. He is mistaken. Higher mAH rating just means longer time to full charge and longer operating time.
