I found my phone not quite in its base and dead. Next I used a pencil eraser to polish the contacts, reset it and the charge light came on. Now almost 48 hrs later, no calls. Curious I picked it up and the display went blank. Pulled the battery(3 cell 600mah NiCd), poked multi-meter leads thru the plastic wrap and found a dead cell. I found a replacement both in NiCd(700 mah) & NI-Mh(800mah) same part# and pricing. Now I know Ni-Cads have an approx. 5 yr. life span. Would a Ni-Mh be a better replacement if compatible? Yep I read the Q&A on the Ni-Mh and the reply was that it would be compatible but I want a knowledgeable opinion.
