Running BC-250d off of power supply indefinitely - Good idea?
I have a Uniden BC-250d handheld scanner. I was thinking of using this to run my live audio feed but I'm unsure if it is a good idea to run it from a power supply. I would have to have it connected to the power supply all of the time so the feed doesn't go down.
Can anyone tell me if this is a good idea or not? I would assume I would remove the battery pack from the scanner when I have it connected to the power supply so I don't overcharge the pack and blow it up. I just don't know if the scanner will run off of the power supply indefinitely without doing internal damage.
I had a 250D that ran for several years feeding a text-(POCSAG)-pager-to-email system 24/7 - the only casualty is that the display contrast is just about gone. Not sure if that's a software setting that got messed up, or if it actually "burned out".
