I've run across rechargeable 3.7 volt batteries that LOOKED like AAA's and were the same size. Six of those would be a better mathematical match to a 24 volt charger. I wouldn't bet on anything until the old pack was positively identified as to what is actually in it.

Turns out the charging voltage is dropped to 12.39 by the time it reaches the connector for the battery pack . No Idea why.
I measured the voltage of the 7 cell rechargable battery pack and it was over 9V. I couldn't figure out why holding the button down it didn't want to power up, even with the Charger plugged into the scanner.
Took it apart and tested the switch ok , but the circuit on the board to the switch for ground is NFG, and I don't want to get too involved with something I can live without.

Angry No communication with Chrysler products MT/ MTG2500

My MT2500 and MTG2500 scanners will not communicate with Chrysler products any longer except in Generic OBD2 mode. 2 different cables, 2 different OBD2 adapters,2 different black programmable cartridges, different Blue K13and K13A keys, swapped things back and forth. Cold or warm ambient temperatures.WTF! Is this the early signs of demise or just possibly the low voltage condition of internal battery, or lack there of an internal battery?Could internal battery make a difference whether or not they will communicate with Chrysler? I finally bought an update sent POS Chinaman Tablet out for repairs and now dealing with this aggravating issue of my Sh@ttin Bricks.

Changed out the old 9V Alcho-Salsa battery of my old MT2500 and it made no difference communicating with the 03 Town and Country . I wonder if I should plug in the Chinaman's Tool Chrysler 16 adapter and see if things go Pop Pop Fizz Fizz (oh what a turd it is)
