30 Caliber Power Can
My 30 caliber power can contains two 12 volt 5 Ah gel cells hooked together in parallel., and they do a fine job of providing the power needed by my FT-897D .
As a rule I have my solar panel with charge controller connected as seen in this photo.
If you look close, the LED indicating a full charge is on, and that is with the radio connected and in receive while I was shooting this photo.
