My original message to the list may have been slightly cryptic. Both
batteries that I have are NiMH. The one that works is the one that came
installed in the unit as I got it. The one that won't take a charge was new
in the wrapper. Unfortunatly they are at work and I don't remember the part
number offhand. Methinks it is something like PC-17-86.
