Michael, I currently do not own a 1550, but I am planning on acquiring one soon. I believe if you want to use the special battery to program the radio, the radio will first need to have that option enabled in the software, aka dealer mode, field programming mode, etc. FYI, to purchase the software for this radio is quite expensive, and also the hardware, cables, etc. will end up costing more than what you paid for the radio. Try batlabs.com discussion board as an excellent source of information on Motorola radios. 73, WA6EIK
