Vertex Standard have completely replaced all their batteries with the all new Universal Range.

This means, in a nutshell, that now all Vertex Standard batteries can be charged in the CD-58 charger. This is great as no matter what Vertex Standard radio you buy, they all use the same “universal” charger. But this only applies to the latest version of batteries. The bad news is that if you buy a new “universal series” battery, you’ll also need to upgrade your charger to a CD-58 charging pod with either a PA-55U (UK) or PA-55C (EU) power supply.

Finding the right new universal battery for your old radio can prove challenging. So we’ve created this handy chart. If your battery is missing from this chart it just means there’s no direct replacement battery.
