For the life of me I cant find my ft60r charger. I looked at buying a replacement and it seems like they are around $30.  Do I need to buy one of these $30 chargers or can I go down to radio shack and buy a charger for $10?  If so what do I need to properly charge my ft60r?  Thanks,

John

Any 12 VDC 200 mA supply should do the job. Not sure which is pos. terminal or its diameter though.

Yaesu's part number for the simple cable (bare ends to barrel connector) is the EDC-6.

The barrel end is 4.0mm/1.7mm, and should be wired center-positive for the FT-60.

If you have a Radio Shack handy, this connector is what you want:

BTW 13.8 VDC will work too, a cigarette lighter plug could be used to charge it if needed.

If you would like the convenience of automatic charging - and many more discharge-charge cycles from your stock NiMH pack - you may want to consider an intelligent, drop-in charger. Like what BatteriesAmerica.com offers ...

EMS-57-83    Desktop Rapid Charger - for both NiCd & NiMH batteries.
Charges battery alone, OR you can insert the entire HT.  FAST /
SMART / EASY TO USE !  Fully automatic; no buttons to push.  Charges
battery swiftly, then shuts down to trickle charge when battery is full. 
Includes worldwide AC-DC wall power supply (100-240VAC input).
