    I have an Alinco DJ 580 that I have had for several years. The original battery got to the place it would not hold charge so I replaced it with a heavy duty one made by W&W Associated it is 12v@1200mah. It has been used very little and it will not hold charge. Should I try to find another replacement for it or just keep using the one I have?

    I run my DJ580 from an external Duracell 12v 1.3Ah AGM battery that hangs from my belt in a cell phone bag.

    Above , that's also what i did years ago whilst portable , then after a while i disassembled the oem battery and fitted new cells (larger mah) .73

    ps - also changed a resistor in the battery pack (for the current regulator) and it charged in half the time but can't remember the details .
