I have the Yaesu FT-817ND and it comes with the battery tray (FB-28) to use 8 AA Alkaline batteries.
I just bought 8 rechargable AA Ni-MH batteries and THEN decided to read the manual which states the following:
Do not attempt to use Ni-Cd or other rechargeable cells in the FBA-28, because it does not contain the protection circuitry required when using rechargeable
DAMN!! What circuitry is there for alkalines but not rechargables?
I do not plan on charging them in the radio. I have a seperate charger for that.
I am cornfused
Is there no way I can use the rechargables with this rig?
