At&T 2420 Battery - Why so hard to find?
The AT&T 2420 Battery part number is a cordless telephone battery used in over 200 different mostly AT&T telephones. The battery is also used in several V-Tech, Panasonic and Olympia cordless telephone models as well.
We have provided many details concerning the At&T 2420 battery below. Hopefully this education will give you the knowledge you need to make an informed buying decision when purchasing a replacement At&T 2420 battery pack for your telephone.
What are the specifications of the At&T 2420 battery Pack?
Most AT&T 2420 batteries are rated at 3.6 volts and 700 mAh (Mili-Amp Hours). Sometimes you will see higher or lower mAh ratings. The mAh number is the measurement of the "capacity" of your 2420 battery pack. The higher the Mili-Amp Hour rating, the longer your run time. For example, a 800 mAh cordless phone battery will give you twice as much talk time when compared to a 400 mAh (half of 600) battery pack. You can think of the mAh rating kind of like you think of your gas tank. The more gallons of gas your tank can hold - the farther you can drive. In the same way, the higher the mAh rating - the longer you can talk on your AT&T phone or the longer you can leave your phone off the charger - right next to you - waiting for that call to ring.
What is the typical useful life of a At&T 2420 Battery Pack?
But don't worry.... we will be stocking brand new 2420 batteries for you for years and years to come. We will have a fresh new one ready for you next time you need one.
But I thought all AT&T 2420 batteries were rechargeable. So why do they wear out eventually?
That is true, the AT&T 2420 battery is in fact rechargeable. Unfortunately, we still have not developed the perfect battery and since there is no such thing as a perpetual motion machine, the ATT 2420 will eventually need to be replaced. Every time you charge and discharge your ATT 2420 battery, a chemical reaction occurs to store or release the electricity to power your AT&T cordless phone. Part of that chemical reaction uses a tiny portion of the NiMh chemistry in your AT&T 2420 battery pack. Eventually those chemicals are depleted and your battery goes "dead" and needs to be replaced. The reality is - the more you use that phone, the more chemistry is depleted in your battery.
Hey - My AT&T 2420 battery has a yellow wrapper... I see your battery has a white wrapper around light green colored batteries. Is that ok?
Yes, several different companies manufacture and market their own version of the AT&T 2420 battery design to consumers. Many times these other battery manufacturers will use different colored plastic shrink wrap as part of their own marketing or branding efforts. We have seen red, yellow, green, blue and tan to name a few! Rest assured, the color of the AT&T 2420 plastic battery wrapping is not critical. What is very important is that the form factor (size), polarity (orientation of the positive and negative contacts) and of course the voltage of your 2420 needs to be exactly the same.Or battery will be a perfect fit for you. We have sold thousands and thousands of these batteries to customers just like you!
How do I make certain I'm getting a quality replacement 2420 battery pack?
Here is where you have to use some common sense and be a smart shopper. Sure, you can find websites selling replacement AT&T 2420 batteries at prices from $5.95 to $19.99 for what looks like "the same" (in the pictures at least) AT&T 2420 battery. Our experience indicates that it is true that you usually do "get what you pay for". In this particular example, however, there is definitely something wrong with the two extremes. Certainly $19.99 is way too much to pay for an ATT 2420 battery. Somebody is just trying to make a lot of money! And in most cases, $5.95 is just too good to be true. We get concerned about the quality of the materials (battery cells), safety features, and quality control process to insure the correct precision fit and finish of the 2420 battery at such a low price. One has to wonder - is it a brand new 2420? Unfortunately there are probably some "refurbished" or damaged goods out there at some of those low prices. In addition many of these low teaser rates do not include shipping or handling charges. Oftentimes that "$5.95" ATT 2420 cordless phone battery ends up being $15.99 or more after the hidden shipping and handling charges are added. Sometimes that really cheap battery is just a cover for some wesite to snag your private information. Please be careful - you usually get what you pay for. So make sure you are looking at the final whole price of these "deals". At Batteries Direct - we don't play that "hide the shipping" game. We are upfront with our total price including shipping on all our products.
