    I've got an older Philishave model 980 electric razor. The
    rechargeable batteries have finally decided they don't want to play
    any more but they have no external markings on their cases. The cct
    board says use only 4822 138 10334 replacement. After googling this I
    found a bunch of sites in languages I don't know. I think I am being
    shown the batteries are 1.2V 600mAh nickel cadmium (2 batteries so
    total voltage would be 2.4V). Am I reading these other sites correctly
    for the values and if so I should be able to use any nickel cadmium
    with specs like these shouldn't I? If I threw in a couple of 1.2V
    1200mAh I would still be good for a longer held charge? TIA.

  2. Sounds right. Hook the motor up to 3 V and see if it runs OK.

    Better not to use NiMh by mistake - some Philishave chargers use voltage
    drop sensing at full charge, which is less pronounced on NiMh so they
    overcharge and ruin.

    I have an older Philishave as well... model is HP 1337.

    Just a heads up in case your's is similar. The batts look exactly
    like sub-c's, but are actually slightly smaller. Sub-c's won't fit,
    no matter how I tried.

    I had to replace them with actual philishave parts.

    Take care.

    That part number is for a "BATTERY (PAIR) * HQ5865":

    A service manual for the HQ5865 shaver is available here:

    The drawing shows 2 x AA NiCd batteries. The text indicates a capacity
    of 600mAh.
    From my reading of the service manual for the HQ5865, I think that
    your shaver's Time Control Module may become confused. AFAICT, the
    charging circuit charges at 1.2A for 30 minutes and then switches to
    slow charge. If your model is similar, then it may indicate a full
    charge when it is in fact only 50%.

    Thanks for all the responses. I stopped in at the local Source store
    and picked up a package of two AA 1.2V 600mAh batteries with the
    solder tabs on them. Got them installed and everything appears to be
    fine in razorland again.
