    Default which XTS2500 charger ( UK )

    Hi. I am looking for a definitive answer about a charger for my XTS2500 - I am shopping 'round Epay, and it seems some chargers are advertised as for charging XTS2500, XTS3000, MTS2000 etc, like this one.. 'You are bidding on a nice looking Motorola NTN7290A charger with AC cable for use with: HT1000, JT1000, MT2000. MTS2000, MTX8000, MTX9000, XTS2500, XTS3000, XTS3500, MTX838, MTX/LS' - well, i have a MTS2000 charger already, and i know its the same voltage as the battery from the XTS2500 but nowhere can i find a definite 'yes or no' whether this will charge the XTS2500 .. and i notice many secondhand AC (non 'wall wart') chargers advertised are 110v ... i thought they were all auto 110/220 not much from China to charge mu XTS2500 .. Can anyone advise please ? or point me to a Chinese / affordable 220v/240v XTS2500 charger please ? AC or 12v - Thanx, Mark

    Get a Motorola WPLN4111 IMPRES charger, they can be had for around $100 USD brand new, and a fair bit less used. Most of the Chinese chargers don't comply with any safety standards -- do you trust one enough to leave it plugged in when you're not home?

    It's a 100-240V device, so just get a UK figure 8 power cable from Maplin's or whoever and you're good to go.

    Thanks Syntrx ... i was hoping to get an IMPRES batt & charger, but i didn't know what model no. to search for ..
    Yes, i don't mind the 'cheap & cheerful' Chinese chargers, but no, i dont leave 'em plugged in when i'm asleep or
    out .. even after fitting fuses ! - but i cant find one for the XTS2500 - maybe after all the
    hours, days and weeks searching maybe i've just worn out my Google juice

    ideally my MTS2000 one will work until i find a IMPRES & couple of batt
    Thanks Syntrx

    If it's an actual XTS2500 battery (not a Waris one) and of the property chemistry (i.e. don't charge a Li-ion batt in a charger that's not tri-chem) then yes, it'll work just fine.

    Hi foxtrotdelta .,.. Thankyou.. the XTS2500 battery is on its standard battery, and the MTS2000 charger isn't a tri-chem .. its a Chinese drop-in charger, so its a pretty simple affair, but charges the MTS2000 great

    Just for info and anyone reading this later, the atandard XTS2500 battery fits perfectly and charges perfectly in the Chinese MTS 2000 charger off Ebay.
