Ok, hear me out, before you respond with "Its the voltage of the battery!" I recently bought a Yaesu VX-170 from the Swapmeet here (and I love the radio, btw). It comes with a "7.2v" battery - its written right on the little label inside the battery. Seems pretty easy, so far, right? Right. So, when you turn the radio on, it generously provides you with the current voltage level of the battery. Right after a charge, I have seen it read as high as 8.4V. WHA?? How that happen? After blabbering on for way to long yesterday, the little "low batt" indicator started blinking. Eventually, the level got so low that the radio was kind enough to cut off my transmission, rather then deep-discharging the battery, I assume. So, I turned the radio of, turned it back on to see the reading and it said "7.2V". Now, wait just a minute!! How is 7.2v "low" for a 7.2v battery? What am I missing? Is that rating on the battery meant to describe its lowest possible charge level? Or am I just being too literal? Thanks, folks.
