Hello Gary


I have both a Standard Horizon (7yo) and a Uniden (4yo) hand held radios.   They both are Lithium Ion rechargeable but each  also came with an additional battery pack that accepts AA batteries.  I use the rechargeable primarily but always carry the battery pack as backup.  Both of my radios have an amazing rechargeable battery life on standby or scanning mode .


If the battery pack does not come with the radio you might be able to purchase it separately from the manufacturer.
