Battery Packs for scanners. Just replace the guts!

Battery Packs for scanners. Just replace the guts!

Why get ripped off buying solid battery packs for scanners?

When the pack that you own gets sick, call any one of the dealers that advertise
batteries in QST.  They can sell you high quality replacements for the sick nicads
that live inside of the plastic pack.

A Bearcat 200XLT pack with Gates batteries runs around $16.

EH Yost sells them as does W&W Associates in NY.

You do need to be able to disassemble the pack, and have to have some skill with a
soldering iron.
