Default Re: 2m/70c Radio battery eliminator build

Crap, I was about to ask how many cells it was, but at 7.6V it must be 2-cell, answered own question.

Why? At that point, it starts separating the cheapie and the better designed battery packs/systems... I also suspect there's no internal SMPS inside the HTs to boost voltage and thus power output/range goes down as battery runs down too (at the expense of noise generated by the SMPS?)
