My Verizon cell charger is 5volts, 1 amp. i had an extra, so now i may plug my 436 into it and charge (which i dont do unless emergency) OR power it while listening. cost me nothing.Thank you much. Thats what I was thinking just wanted to make sure.
You can use it to "power" the scanner (by selecting the serial connection option when it's plugged in), or you can select it to charge the batteries. You CAN NOT do both at the same time.Can this scanner be power with a cell phone usb for base use or only for charging.
