Like previous query. I too have had my Motorola M3788E
(note the E on the end) for a similar period of time. I have managed to obtain a new battery some years ago but now I required a further battery replacement. Unfortunately I am having difficulty in acquiring one. Any suggestions how I get a replacement. I only use it to make and receive calls. Don't want a new one. This suits me fine. I would really appreciate anyones sensible help. Cheers. Bill.

I've had my 3788 now for 10 years. I like its simplicity and reliability. I don't want to take pictures or access the internet etc, so the 3788 suits me very well. But I did find the small reduction in battery voltage from 5.4 volts to 5.00 volts to be too small. The phone cuts out at 5.00 volts. I arranged to run my one from 5 external nicads, 6.75 volts at max and it runs well, since now I can let the battery fall all the way from 6.75 volts to 5.00 volts before it cuts out.

> In reply to carole @ 2008-01-04 22:07 from n5TH - click to readMy 3788 tolerates battery voltages between 6.75 and 5.00 volts. But an aging battery quickly drops to 5.0 volts so I replaced my one with 5 D cells outside the case. I removed the diode from the old battery and soldered it back inside the phone. Result...superb! The battery runs and runs the phone without recharge for weeks.

I removed the battery and soldered its diode into the phone case , then added a socket so I could connect the phone to 5 external D size Nicads. The capacity of these id 5,000 mAHrs so they last a long time when running. The phone seems to tolerate any voltage from 6.75V, to 5.00V which is where it cuts out. The original battery, as supplied, quickly falls to 5.0V as it ages, so my modification allows a voltage fall of up to 1.75V and this is a big improvement on the original battery's figures. The D cells are bulky so I carry them in my shopping bag. Being made of Nickle on the outside, they solder OK to take the necessary wires.
