I recently picked one of these radios up here on RCU. The radio is reported to be about 10 months old or in the ball park. While cleaning the radio I noticed that the battery cover was a jar, so I removed it to reposition it and install it again. In looking at the battery I noticed that it had a 9 volt type connector going to the battery that was just about to fall off. I removed the battery and in looking inside the transmitter I could see that the wires had been pinched and that the bare copper was showing. I removed the transmitter back and to my surprize I found a small board that appears to have been installed in the radio with a 2 pin type bracket to plug in the battery, that was just kinda floating around in the transmitter. My question would be, is this 9 volt style plug the way it is supposed to be? I looked into my other JR and it does have this type of battery. I have velcroed this board to the inside of the case and replaced the frayed 9 volt plug. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Dave

The 421 comes with a small black plug for the battery. It doesn't come with a 9 volt type connector.
