We have provided details concerning the V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 battery in the discussion that follows. Hopefully this information will give you the knowledge you need to make a more educated decision when purchasing a replacement V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 battery pack for your telephone.
What are the specifications of the V-Tech 80-4134-00-00battery Pack?
Most Sony 8041340000 batteries are rated at 3.6 volts 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 80-4134-00-00 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 twice as much talk time when compared to a 300 mAh (half of 600) battery pack.
What is the normal useful life of a V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 Battery Pack?
Most consumers get between 3 to 5 years of service from their Sony 80-4134-00-00 phone battery before needing a replacement. This lifespan depends, of course, on individual patterns of usage.
But I thought all V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 batteries were rechargeable. So why do they wear out?
True, the V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 battery is a rechargeable battery pack. Unfortunately, we still have not yet invented "the perfect battery" and since there is no such thing as a perpetual motion machine, the V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 will eventually need to be replaced. Every time you charge and discharge your V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 battery, a chemical reaction occurs inside the battery cells to store or release the electricity you need to power your cordless telephone. Part of that chemical reaction uses up a tiny portion of the NiMh chemistry in your V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 battery pack. Eventually those chemicals are depleted and once that happens, your battery goes "dead".
My V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 battery has a black wrapper. I see different colored telephone battery packs available. Is that ok?
Yes, that is ok. Several different companies manufacture and market their own version of the V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 battery design to customers. Many times these battery manufacturers use different colored plastic shrink wrap as part of their marketing and "branding" efforts. We have seen green, white, blue, red, yellow and tan to name a few! Rest assured, the color of your V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 plastic battery wrapping is cosmetic only and unimportant. What is very important is that the form factor (size), polarity (orientation of the positive and negative contacts) and of course the voltage of your 8041340000 - all must be exactly the same.
How do I make certain I'm getting a quality replacement 80-4134-00-00 battery pack?
That is a good question. It is difficult to sort out the variety of offerings out there on the internet. You can find websites selling replacement V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 batteries at prices from $8.95 to $19.99 for what looks like "the same" (in the pictures at least) V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 battery. Our experience indicates that it is true - you usually do "get what you pay for". So you need to use some common sense. In this particular example, there is definitely something wrong with the two price extremes. Certainly $19.99 is way too much to pay for a V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 battery pack. Somebody is just trying to make a lot of money! And in most cases, $8.95 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 80-4134-00-00 battery. At some of these low prices, one has to wonder - if it is is in fact a brand new 80-4134-00-00? Unfortunately there are probably some "refurbished" or damaged goods out there on the market. In addition many of these low teaser rates do not include shipping or handling charges. Oftentimes that "$8.95" V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 cordless phone battery ends up being $16.99 or more after the hidden shipping and handling charges are added at the end of your checkout proceedure. So make sure you are looking at the final whole price of these "great deals".
What should I look for when buying a replacement V-Tech 80-4134-00-00 battery?
