  1. i have 2 original batteries, one as new fully charged and one that holds 50% of charge, so I've not done bad over the years
  2. And someone wants £99 for a dud battery Original Vintage Aiwa Li-ion Battery for MD Mini Disc Players - Japan (LIB-902) | eBay
  3. The battery is now available as well, it seems AIWA LIB-902 MD Player AM-F70/F80 AM-C80 AM-F5 / Sharp ST60 Battery - 3.7 700mAh | eBay
  4. it's OK i found one here https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/235156982229?_trkparms=amclksrc%3DITM%26aid%3D777008%26algo%3DPERSONAL.TOPIC%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20230811123856%26meid%3D9c6a116619304afd9661bfecdb0d0763%26pid%3D101770%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D1%26itm%3D235156982229%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D4375194%26algv%3DRecentlyViewedItemsV2&_trksid=p4375194.c101770.m146925&_trkparms=parentrq%3A673df79718b0aab3d3ae0e51ffff0d3a|pageci%3Af82fec83-7342-11ee-a7d9-22af3d678883|iid%3A1|vlpname%3Avlp_homepage
  5. Hi friends i purchased a new aiwa AM-F-80 a couple of years ago from eBay, and it came with a plastic cartridge cut out for the battery Trustfire 10440 Li-ion 3.7V 600mAh Rechargeable with Battery Charger does anyone know where i can purchase another one of these plastic cartridges thanks
  6. Yes it certainly is. if you have the room for one and a nice one comes along then i would go for it. it's the same weight as the 930/940 roughly with the same output connections
  7. in the width. i suspect that's the reason when i purchased the f91 tuner it came without the wooden side panels as that would have added 2 inches to the width as well
  8. thanks. that little jongo a2 in the middle on top of the cd recorder is both Bluetooth and wifi. the bluetooth is so so as the codac is 7 years old but the Wi-Fi is excellent so recording from the tv bbc sounds app via the jongo's digital output is just the same as recording from the tuner
  9. that's the one. as you say most odd but with all the hassle I've had with the 940 that i mucked up I'm happy that it's working well. for how long thou you can never tell. i still have my original 920 that works well and always has done plus my Kenwood. now that's a very big recorder and wont go in my cabinet so doesn't get used much. the manufacturer didn't state the measurements of the unit correctly and is 2 inches oversized to the normal hi fi spec. I've never looked inside so cant tell if it's belt or gear driven? https://www.tapeheads.net/showthread.php?t=11235
  10. my 930 i have just purchased is very good and in mint condition but has been very heavily used so unsure to how much life it's got left in it
  11. can anyone please confirm do these 3 models have the same output display for brightness and are not adjustable thanks
  12. i couldn't agree with you more. 😀 I've had 3 940's play up over the last 20 odd years including a new one albeit that was probably my fault and my other 920 / 930 not once apart from the display getting dim.
  13. can anyone please remember what the technical difference was between those uk red badged models and the eu non badged models from the JB 920/930/940/980/ QS series thanks
