Customer Question
I had just asked...

I had just asked about my Model 2101 RCA cordless phones, one of which quit working. Where can I get a new battery for it?

Technician's Assistant: How old is the phone?

About 3 years.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

This started a few weeks ago. The screen on the phone says "charging", but it never gets charged. The other phone on the system still works.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

The battery is a Sanik 25N-AAA55H-S-J1, whatever that is.

Hello & Welcome to Just Answer,

I'm Greg and will do my best to assist with this issue today.

Sorry I didn't see your question earlier and to hear of any issue with your phone(s).

If you still need help with this issue, may I ask:

1) Are there any more characters AFTER the 2101 model number? I only ask because it appears there can be several sub-model of the 2101.

But, I suspect that you CAN find the replacement batteries for these handsets on Amazon. I did a quick search for the term "RCA 2101 battery", and a link to the results below.

Click here for search results --> http://amzn.to/2zVDtOn

I also did a search for the battery brand and number (Sanik 2SN-AAA55H-S-J1) and have the results below.

Click here for search results --> http://amzn.to/2iANc3c

NOTE: I saw several "multi-pack" listing for the last search, and would also recommend that ALL batteries be replaced - at the same time (even if one of them has not failed yet).

I hope this helps. Please let me know what you find or if you have any more questions or details about this RCA phone system.

If this has helped answer your question(s), please take a moment to rate MY service level (5-star is my goal) so that I get credit for my time helping you with this question.
You should see some "stars" (and SUBMIT button) to do that, but please let me know if you do NOT see them (you may have to REFRESH your screen) or can not use them.

Thanks, ***** *****
