Hitachi ur18dsl radio will not work off fully charged 1.5ah slide battery
Hi there,
How old is the radio?
Do you have a multimeter available?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Hi, The radio is only a month old. It's the first time I've tried to use it just on battery. Sorry I don't have a multimeter available.

Ok Douglas, I would recommend testing the battery first to confirm it is outputting the required minimum 14.4 Volts.

If the battery test confirms it is ok, then the radio likely has a fault and will need to be returned for repair or replacement.
