I recently purchased a battery from BatteryZone (ya I know, but I have us=
alot of 2-way radio batts from them with great success.)
Anyway my original just quit, up to that time the charging system on the =
worked fine.
My problem now is, I am trying to determine if the current replacement ba=
is good, and the TP system is messed up, or the batt is bad.

A Diag check on the TP states the MB is good, and everything else checks =
fine. But the batt will not charge most of the time. No lights or anythin=
occasionally the yellow blinks a few times then out.=20
On the occasion when I do get a good charge the batt. seems to hold good,=
about 3-4 hours under active use.=20
Has anyonme else had this exp., any way to diagnose this without purchasi=
another batt>
