Will my radio operate on alkaline "AA" or "AAA" batteries?

Yes, certain models that are rechargeable can operate on AA or AAA alkaline batteries as well as the provided rechargeable battery packs. If it says that it will operate on alkaline batteries on each respective product page then you can use both rechargeable battery packs and alkaline batteries. Please remember to never place your radio in the charging base or use the charging cable when it contains alkaline batteries. Those charging devices are only used with the included rechargeable battery packs.
