    Can you rejuvenate nimh batteries?

    I have two dick smith 5w handheld hug radiosand one is refusing to take a charge. With dick smith support gone skywards and no spares regards battery packs I am wondering what options I have for these really good little radios?

    I'd be heading into your local Jaycar with a radio and see if they can sort out a replacement. Battery world would make the list too.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    As Clunk said, nimh batteries have no memory effect so when they die they are dead for good.
    Check what these guys have.

    Yes tried there already but a bit tricky getting a specific replacement from the 'sea' of suppliers for what is a cheaply radio probably made in China.
