Best place to find a nimh rechargeable replacement battery.

Post by atlanta_dad »

I need to replace Marantz receiver RC3001 remote rechargeable battery Ni-mh 4.8v 0.7Ah, it's total 4 batteries, 2 batteries stacked on 2 batteries vertically, packaged all together. I did a lot of search online but couldn't find the right match. Going to best buy now to check. Please suggest a good place online or in store where I may be able to find. I am planning to call marantz and check with them tomorrow.

* I wanted to attach the image here for the battery but could not find a way.

Thanks.

I've found that CVS has a huge selection of batteries.

If you don’t have local hobby shop, then Amazon.

I’ve purchased several RC NiMh and LiPo batteries on Amazon.

We are more into cars & trucks where LiPo makes a tremendous performance improvement, not sure about your application. A little reading on the RC forums might help.

I believe this is what you described. 4 AA in a 2x2 config. AA are 1.2V so 4 = 4.8v and the mAh really doesn’t matter. That is the capacity of the battery, bigger is better.

Let me also add, NiCd vs NiMh chemistry are interchangeable, it’s only when you introduce Li that you need to be concerned about chargers.

Maybe this:

Looks like a flat top AAA, which tracks with the mah rating.

A battery store (Batteries Plus on our area) is where I go for oddball batteries.

You can contact them, looks like it's over 12 years old, you may be out of luck, as this would be considered end of life these days. If you can find it, I couldn't find one except here https://encompass.com/item/12430320/Mar ... ZF000060R/, expect to pay $40-50 + shipping and handling.

This is assuming your battery model number is 90M-ZF000060R and looks like this (and if so, it's really too bad they didn't use standalone AA/AAA NiMH like everyone else would for this type of application):

Looks like 4 1.2V AAA NiMH in series

Might try this place. I've purchased from them before but not any NiMH.

I suspect you won't be able to find that battery unless you can eventually find one on ebay, if you do find one it will likely be very costly since that remote has been discontinued for years.

I think you'd be much better off just purchasing a Logitech Harmony universal remote. Here is the compatibility website to check your equipment and be sure the Logitech Harmony will work: https://support.myharmony.com/en-us/compatibility

I have several Logitech Harmony remotes. The most economical current model, the Harmony Ultimate 665, is $59.99 at Best Buy. (https://www.bestbuy.com/site/logitech-h ... Id=5852832) I've had one of those for several years and it works like a charm, no issues whatsoever. It also uses two (2) AA batteries so no worries about a built-in rechargeable battery which can become obsolete.

If you can't take apart the battery pack and rebuild with new cells on your own I think you would be better off with a new remote as another poster stated. If you are able to locate a replacement pack it's probably been sitting on a shelf for years.

If you are going to replace with something like a Harmony, this remote has both IR and RF. Are you using the RF extender? If so, you'd want to be aware of that if trying to use a IR learning remote with the remote you have to learn codes and wondering why it's not working, lol.

Your local Hobby or R/C shop should be able to fill your needs, or you can have one custom built by Digikey. Looks like it would run you ~ $15.00 plus shipping
