That would be SANYO Eneloop, 
but for the last few years they have been branded Panasonic because Matsushita bought up Sanyo. 
I have been using Sanyo Eneloop cells for nearly ten years and I'm happy with them. 
The Panasonics are probably even better.

I am currently using POWEREX AA 2700 NIMH batteries in my scanners. I have been using these for years with good results. I also used similar Sanyo’s which lasted quite awhile.

However, it seems to me that the POWEREX batteries that I bought in the last two years don’t perform as well as the older ones.

I have seen a couple of charger/analyzers on Amazon that may help my power situation.

1. Powerex MH-C9000 $80.49
2. BT-C2400 $26.96

Does anyone know if these things really work as advertised? I would like to resurrect my current crop of batteries if possible. The BT-C2400 price is more appealing.

Someone else on another list suspected that the site "prezhost.com" may be a bot or spam site. Since these sort of "helpful" blips have been popping up on multiple lists I would avoid any contact. Perhaps the moderators should look a bit closer at the situation.

Re: SD Change

Joe M.
 

I've had OEM cards that last long, and some that don't. A quality replacement SD card should last a pretty long time. The larger the card, the more recordings it will be able to hold. If you don't record, you should be able to get away with a smaller card just fine.

It means you probably have Quick Keys assigned and not enabled in the profile. You can just enable them using the keypad or enable them in your profile then write that to the scanner.

The cable is available (sometimes) at Uniden.com and/or scannermaster.com.

You can find free scanner programming software by researching the BC259D radio at RadioReference

the BCD996P2. By all the pictures, it looks almost identical to the
BCT15X, however looking at the various advertisements, the dimensions
listed vary from dealer to dealer for both radios.

So, does anybody have both of these radios and can compare dimensions
for me? I honestly find it hard to believe the radios could look so
identical and not be the same size as they look like they use the same
case. It sure would be nice if manufacturers could standardize the sizes
of these things.

As a side note, I use FreeScan to program my BCT15X. Does the same
program work with the BCD996P2? If it does, can I take my file for the
BCT15X and add the P25 stuff I need to the existing information to
program the BCD996P2? That would definitely save me hours of programming.
