I'm not a '400' owner, but browsing the specs, it appears that it doesn't use batteries, notwithstanding the 'without batteries' statement.

Are you subject to frequent power outages? An uninterruptable power supply (computer stores) would cover you, and being that the current drain is ~200 ma, the power should last quite a bit.

Like ampulman suggested, a UPS (small w/ 4ahr battery) would hold you for about 10-12 hrs, depending on the activity.
We were w/o power during hurricane Katrina. I was running a PSR600. I turned off back-lights and locked out unneeded objects/talk groups. I also skipped unneeded systems. I was running about 18 hrs with a 7ahr battery.

Walmart or Biglots have some at reasonable prices.
