Quick Two Way Radio Charger FAQs
What's the best charger for two-way radios?
Most two-way radios charge Nickel-Cadmium (NiCD) and Nickel-Metal-Hydride (NiMH) batteries. Some chargers may not charge Li-Ion battery chemistries. Due to different battery chemistries, sizes, and capacities please check the charger specifications before inserting your two way radio battery.
Can I Substitute Li-Ion for NiCD/NiMH Two Way Radio Chargers?
If you are thinking of substituting your NiCD or NiMH chargers with a Li-Ion charger you would need to refer to your two-way radio manual or manufacturer. Since li-ion chargers have a higher energy density usually two-way models are specifically designed to be used with li-ion chargers. However, more often than not, manufacturers are sticking to NiCD or NiMH chargers since they are less expensive to manufacture.
Can I leave the battery in the charger for more than the normal charge time?
After normal daily usage, leaving them in the charger overnight or over the weekend is fine. It is not recommended to leave the radio batteries in the charger full time, this will damage the batteries.
How long should I charge two way radio batteries?
On the first initial charge cycle, keep the batteries on the charger for at least 12 hours (even with a rapid charger) and after a complete discharge. Each cycle after that should be 8 to 12 hours to fully recharge depending on usage.
