Greetings -

Due to space constraints and, assuming I can find someone to sell me one, I'm going to have to install a remote head configuration in the vehicle to replace a Motorola transceiver that's already installed. I've heard horror stories about people frying their handheld radios when using the suggested cigarette lighter plugs...is there any safe way I can power a handheld from an SAE 12v lead (would be plugging a female accessory plug receptacle to the SAE)? Is any of the designated mobile accessory cords for the 346, etc. actually capable of stepping down the power to the radio?

Thanks!
