I have a Baofang UV-5R that has a LiIon battery and a base charger that works off of a DC (12V cigg lighter) as well as AC
I plan to take the Baofang UV-5R on my motorcycle travel this summer so i don't want to take the charging base.
I would be operating simplex with this radio to my fellow motorcycle riders
The radio will be connected to my helmet audio and left hand PTT
The issue is the battery as it won't last a day long while transmitting often.
So i was looking at various battery eliminators thalt looks like a battery but is essentially a collection
of transistors inside and has a 12V cigg lighter outlet to connect to.
Does anyone has any experience with this?
Do they cut out during Tx?
How hot do they get?
I am looking for actual experiences, not speculations.
