Philips shaver battery.

Post by malcscott » Mon Jan 14, 2013 1:20 pm

My Philips rechargeable shaver needs a new battery, a single ni-cad cell similar in size to a AA. P/N 4822-138-10611. To my horror i found one on the CHS website priced at £18.64p + vat = £22.37p !!!!!!!!
How can they charge this much? I only paid a fiver more than that for a new car battery. 8)) 8))

Yep but you can't run your shaver on a car battery and they know it !!!

You could replace it with another NICAD, check out car boot sales and Ebay for such batteries, some small shops carry old stock items. I am thinking the charger is built in to this shaver. I am thinking your batteries are suffering from memory effect, this is when you get crystal build up. Do they look furred up or leaky?. I bought a Sharp Else mate calculator from 1974 with its original NICAD cells in place and they were furred up badly but I brought them back to life by cleaning them with a hobby tool and then shocking them in to life from a car battery for ten seconds, this melts those crystals and they seem to hold a charge and have done so for a month now. A lot of NICADS can be brought back to life using this method.

I thought that with the old rechargeable NICAD AAs inside my Sharp calculator as I nearly binned them but they cleaned up great and when I shocked them of a car battery it fixed the problem and there holding charge, failing this then replacing the old NICADS is the way to go but if its a shaver try to replace with high capacity ones as its motor driven. AA was a common size but that said you don't see many NICADS of this size but there is a shop in Prudhoe that sells old stock rechargeable batteries but sadly in large sizes only. Lloytron do NICAD AAs as I have seen them on Ebay.

I have located a NOS battery in a sealed Philips pack among my vast collection of spares. It is the identical one, same Philips p/no. I have fitted it and the shaver is now on charge. The battery has a date code of 02/09.
I dont know if this is the sell by date of the production date. I will report back later after it has been on charge a few hours.

Nice one but rechargeable batteries don't have a use by date on, maybe its a production code. At least its AA size and easy to fit and source. I am thinking this shaver also uses wheel type blades and does not have a foil which over time can get on the thin side. Phillips is a fantastic make for shavers and there stuff is built to last.
