Hi All, hope this is the right spot for this question. I recently picked up some used old school HTs for doing SOTA. They came shipped with old mostly dead batteries, so I picked up a new 8.4V 1800mAh Ni-Mh battery off ebay. I've search through quite a few threads and can't seem to find a definitive answer as to the best way to charge these batteries. The new Ni-Mh battery has two plugs on either side. One says "DC 13.8 V" and the other plug says "Wall Charger". The 13.8V will fit many of the random wall wort chargers I've accumulated over the years including a 12V 500mA wall plug that came with one of the radios. The "Wall Charger" other plug is a smaller diameter that I don't have on hand. One of the old dead batteries also has this plug configuration. So.... What's the best way to charge these batteries? I also have a BC-35 charging station. Is it safe to charge my new Ni-Mh on this charger? Manual says "Do not attempt to charge anything other than Ni-Ca..." Also, what is the recommended plug for powering the radio via the DC plug on top? I've powered the radios using the 12V 500mA wall plug and receive fine, but can't seem to transmit reliably on it. Battery works fine for transmitting simplex, but I've had issues hitting repeaters from my 3rd story. Of course will be upgrading antenna soon... Thanks for any advice. Pretty excited to get these radios to a mountain top soon.
