Nicads / NiMH

Rechargeable batteries, available in a variety of sizes and capacities.

Save money and help the environment by using rechargeable batteries - not only in your handheld radio but around the home as well.

Over the past few years the capacity of rechargeable batteries has increased 5 fold. Standard AA batteries used to be around 500mAh, now you can get over 2500mAh for the same price!

The new NiMH batteries not only have a higher capacity than the NiCd version they replace, but they also do not suffer from the same "memory effect".

A sealed 12V rechargeable battery pack for the Maycom AH27, Midland 42, and RadioShack handhelds.

Because this pack is a full 12V, it allows your radio to give a full 4W output. If you used nicads in the normal empty battery case, you will only have 9.6V (8 x 1.2v) and consequently the output from your radio will be lower.
