I have a question that I haven't been able to find a definitive answer for. If I hook up a DC power supply to my FT-60R, will it charge the battery while the radio is powered on? I'm just concerned about overcharging a battery if it does. I think I've read that I can remove the battery to use on DC, but I don't want to if I don't have to.
Another question related to this, would this power supply work for the FT-60R. I don't see anything about it that wouldn't. I ask because the local walmart has them on clearance for 17 dollars. I thought that maybe taking this, snipping off the female cigarette lighter plug, and adding some powerpoles to use as a home power supply.
