Great Engineering in a NiMh Pack  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
The One Plug Power (OPP) is a great addition to the FT-817. The capacity improvement over the stock NiCd Yaesu pack is significant and adds greatly to the enjoyment of the 817 in the field. The ability to fast charge the pack with the included cable connected to the pack's external connector is extremely convenient. The "icing on the cake" is the careful engineering which includes both overcurrent protection in positive and negative leads PLUS thermal protection. This allows one to do fast charging in confidence even though the pack is tucked away INSIDE the 817. Even a charger fault or an internal cell fault can't damage the 817. Once again, good job W4RT Electronics!
