External charging cradle for 41/97



#2

I recently acquired an external charging cradle for the sub-C pack used in the 97 and 41 printer. It is the same color as the 97 and has a translucent lid. When I place a battery pack into it and close the lid, the lid does not latch. Thus, the battery does not always make contact properly, and I have to put a rubber band around the unit to hold the lid closed.

Is this normal? Is the lid supposed to latch?

Thanks,

Dave

No the lid does not latch, the weight of the battery pack
is supposed to keep it in place so that the lid can close.
