Plastic Tab
The plastic tab breaks too easily. When it breaks, the batteries can't be charged which makes the whole thing worthless. Don't waste your money on this piece of junk (I wish I hadn't

I got over 24 hours on the first time I tried the battery. I did not broadcast during that time but was impressed with the battery life.

Pros: Easy to install and charge. Cons: Does not maintain charge for very long. I received my initial battery which did not charge at all. A replacement was sent which was usable for 6-8 hours when I first received it when it was fully charge. After a month or so I could use it for about an hour or so. Three months after purchase I'm lucky if it holds a charge for 20 minutes before shutting down. Very poor product at any price. For what I paid for the NiMH battery and charger I could have bought many 100s of hours worth of AA alkaline batteries.

Cons: - extremely expensive - difficult to slide in and near impossible to slide out durability and reliability could not be tested because SP-400 failed before

how do you charge it? Can you just plug in the a/c adapter to the radio and it will charge or do you need a separate charger?
whatwill on Aug 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can plug the AC adapter into the radio and it will charge the battery.
Can I use the regular battery ( non NiMh) holder with NiMh batteries, thus being able to get my own NiMh batteries and charge them instead of repurchasing the NiMh pack when it fails to hold a charge?
Bill R on Apr 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Afirmative ! There s no problem! My experience says that NiMh doesn t hold for soo long time as expected ! I use the s400 for flight information for air shows inf the begining! After one hour I change for litium battery! The regular are no strong enough! I use lighter charger andei think is one of the reasons why NiMh doesn t work so good! Once is already charge I return to replace again the litium bateries! I Still have the original ! I tires the rechargeble battery and they didn t work! ....I hoje I assim usefull!
Does the purchase of this rechargeable battery come with a battery charger?
