Default Old old old battery...

I have a Uniden BC 200 xlt that is still working well... we use it for storm reports and mostly 2 meter Ham listening.
This old standby has the original battery... you guessed it... it does not hold a charge! We only use this as it is plugged into AC for a half hour or so at a time.

Here is the question:

I know the original battery pack is TOAST... so... can i use this radio plugged into AC for extended periods of time without damaging the radio itself?
I am not worried about the TOASTED battery pack.
I am thinking of using it similar to a desktop, keeping it plugged in and scanning for hours at a time.

Yes I looked all over this forum... did not find an answer to this.

Thank you
Ralph (Picnic42)

Well I don't see no problem with that as long as the radio is in good condition and you don't leave it in 24/7.
