Great replacement battery for my Uniden cordless phone model# DCT6485. It is a direct replacement for battery model# BT-446 and as I have learned, those replacements are not always created equal. The one I bought prior to this from Smartbatts (Sm44600) was absolute garbage and lasted less than a year. The cord to connect it inside the battery compartment was too long and got snagged in cover when closing, making for an awkward fit. This one form Overstock.com was a perfect fit and delivered everything I expected (more than fair price, extremely reasonable shipping). A great product at an awesome price! Very happy.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? Got exactly what I expected and saw online when purchasing.
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes, so far so good, holds a charge for days, weeks with light use (1 hour a less/day).
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Great quality. I've ordered replacements before for my phone and the power cord has been abnormally long, leaving it prone to pinching in the battery tray cover while sliding it closed..
The product is good and works well, but you need to order an extra one. I needed two of these batteries, but after reading the reviews, I decided to order three in case there was an issue. There was. One of the leads on one of the batteries was cut. I used the other two and was going to repair the third and keep it for a spare. I never got around to it, and just threw it away yesterday.
The batteries work fine but the pin contact tends to pop out when the plug is inserted. It's possible to fix it but it's a real pain. Clearly the plug design is not good enough to hold the pin in place. But then the price is very good and if you're careful they can be got to fit.
It is still early, so I cannot make a statement to the battery life, however I can say that the battery suited my needs perfectly. I was planning on buying new phones, and then realized; why don't I just see if new batteries will fix my issues. I replaced the batteries in the 4 phones that I have, and it is as though I purchased a new system, but for 10% of the cost.
