I left my car charger for my Motorola Mc-67 handheld scanner that I use for work in my wife's car. No problem, I decided to plug in the home charging base into the 110v socket. It doesn't work. I checked the socket by plugging in an MP5 Philips patient monitor. That works. The Motorola base goes from a 110v outlet to a DC converter much like a laptop charger. Any idea why it won't work?

David, I don't recall the spec but the 110v does have an amperage limit so maybe the Motorola is too much? But I'd think that would blow the fuse. Hmm.
Other than the occasional phone charger, the only thing heavy duty I've used it for was a couple of crockpots during a long trip. LOL

The plug could be loose. My wife tries to use it for her cell phone and it has the tendency to slip out a little bit and disconnect.
Check to make sure its in good or put some other plug in there like a short extension that you know is in good and try to plug into the other end of the extension.
