    Default Kenwood Replacement Batteries - Suggestions?

    Not that I'm not a huge fan of paying through the nose for OEM batteries (cough, cough), but I'm in the market for a replacement for my TK-280 battery (KNB-17A), and wonder if anyone has any good suggestions on alternate brands. Has anyone heard of / had any experience with ArrowMax? W&W Manufacturing? Interstate Batteries?

    Thanks, and have a great weekend!

    Somewhere between genius and insanity!


    If you have a Batteries Plus franchise in your area, call them for pricing. I ordered batteries for our HT1000's and they were about $2 less per battery than the OEM batteries from Motorola.
