AT&T 2419 Battery Pack
What exactly is an AT&T 2419?
The AT&T 2419 is a cordless telephone battery used in many different models of mostly AT&T telephones.
We have provided quite a few details about the AT&T 2419 battery below. Hopefully this education will give you the knowledge you need to make an informed buying decision when purchasing your replacement AT&T 2419 cordless phone battery pack for your telephone.
What are the specifications of the AT&T 2419 cordless phone battery Pack?
Most AT&T 2419 batteries are rated at 3.6 volts and between 600 and 700 mAh (Mili-Amp Hours). Sometimes you will see higher or lower mAh ratings. The mAh number is the measurement of the "capacity" of your AT&T 2419 cordless phone battery pack. The higher the Mili-Amp Hour rating, the longer your run time. For example, a 600 mAh cordless phone battery will give you two times the talk time when compared with a 300 mAh (half of 600) battery pack.
What is the typical useful life of a AT&T 2419 telephone Battery Pack?
Most consumers get between 4 to 5 years of service out of their AT&T 2419 phone battery before needing to replace it. This lifespan will depend, of course, on individual patterns of usage.
But I thought AT&T 2419 batteries were rechargeable. Why do they wear out?
True, the AT&T 2419 battery is in fact rechargeable. But at some point in time the AT&T 2419 battery will need to be replaced. Every time you charge and discharge your AT&T 2419 battery, a chemical reaction occurs to store or release the electricity to power your cordless telephone. Part of that chemical reaction uses a tiny portion of the NiMH chemistry in your AT&T 2419 battery pack. Eventually those chemicals are depleted and your battery goes "dead".
My AT&T 2419 battery has a black wrapper. I see different colored telephone batteries available. Is that ok?
Yes, several different companies manufacture and market their own version of the AT&T 2419 battery design to consumers. Many times these other battery manufacturers use different colored plastic shrink wrap as part of their own marketing and "branding" efforts. We have seen green, red, yellow, blue and tan to name a few. Please note that the color of your AT&T 2419 plastic battery wrapping is unimportant. What is important is that the voltage, form factor (size), contact (plug), polarity (orientation of the positive and negative contacts) of your 2419 need to be exactly the same.
How do I make certain I'm getting a quality replacement AT&T 2419 battery pack?
Here is where you have to use some common sense and be a wise shopper. Sure, you can find websites selling replacement AT&T 2419 batteries at prices from $5.95 to $19.99 for what looks like "the same" (in the pictures at least) AT&T 2419 battery. Our experience indicates that it is true one usually gets what one pays for. In this particular example, there is probably something wrong with either of the two extremes. Certainly $19.99 is too much to pay for an AT&T 2419 battery. And, in most cases, $6.95 is just too good to be true. We get concerned about the quality of the materials (battery cells), safety features, and quality control process to insure the correct precision fit and finish of the 2419 battery. One has to wonder - is it a brand new 2419? Unfortunately there are probably some "refurbished" or damaged goods out there at some of those low prices. In addition many of these low teaser rates do not include shipping or handling charges. Oftentimes that "$6.95" AT&T 2419 cordless phone battery ends up being $14.99 or more after the hidden shipping and handling charges are added. So make sure you are looking at the final total price of these "bargains".
What should I look for when buying a replacement AT&T 2419 battery?
