Q. AC/DC Power Adaptors - Regulated vs. Unregulated?

A. If an adapter doesn't have "regulated" printed on its label, you
can't be sure about it without testing it. Testing's really easy,
though; get yourself a $15 multimeter, set it to an appropriate DC
volts range, plug the adapter in, and apply the probes to the plug
terminals. That'll give you the unloaded voltage. If it's
significantly higher than the rating, you've got an unregulated
plugpack.

Q. My pager does not function with new battery?

A. Wrong Battery:
A common problem is "Use of batteries that are not alkaline". When a person puts them into their flashlight, they canít see any difference because both kinds will make the flashlight light up, but there is a huge difference in performance. The old style "regular" batteries will not hold their voltage under load as well or as long as alkaline batteries. When a non-alkaline battery is used, the battery life will be very short or not work at all. The display will work, but often there is not enough power to properly operate the radio receiver portion of the pager. This leads to complaints of operation in some places and not in others, or "Jimís pager works there, but mine doesn't". It doesn't matter what's printed on the outside of the battery, how many or how big they write Super Duper, Heavy Duty, Extra Power or all the other marketing terms, if it doesn't say "Alkaline", you should put it into the trash instead of the pager!.
