Don't waste money  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I purchased two OPP-897s from W4RT, one works OK, but one will not take a full charge and will discharge in two weeks with no use. I contacted W4RT may times. It has been over 10 months now. In my most recent email, I was told that I must have dropped the battery or damaged it. I was also told that they are old. I replied and assured W4RT that the batteries were never abused and their useful life should be more than 12 months. They have not responded. I have now decided NEVER again to waste my money on a W4RT product, but spend a little more and buy quality.
