Can the AA rechargeble batteries be used in this Radio?
A shopper on Dec 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. The radio does com with an SBT-12 battery tray that will hold 6 'AA" alkaline batteries that can be substituted for the Lithium Ion rechargeable pack but the manual, page 12,specifically states that rechargeable batteries must not be used because the SBT-12 does not contain the required thermal and over-current protection circuits for Ni-CD and Ni-MH cells.
Is this compatible with the Zulu lightspeed headset?
Leslie R on Jul 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It should provided it's not the wireless ones. The radio has an attachment to plug in any dual plug set.
