Battery remover?

Post by EB3AM » Sun Apr 26, 2020 9:38 pm

A few days ago I was looking for the "battery eliminator" for radioddity or 1801. I can't find it.
Does anyone know if it exists?
If not ... how would you do it? You could remove cells on any old battery, and put an 8v regulator inside and a cable to the car’s power outlet. Or, someone could draw a 3D model for printers and print a fake battery to power the HT. Could it be that a 3d model has already been made?

I don't think there is a battery eliminator for the GD-77 or the DM-1801 which you can buy

There is this design on thingiverse,

But I don't think my 3D printer could print it, because it has a lot of overhangs. I guess if you use a lot of support material it may be possible.

Also, they seemed to use some special brass bolts for the contacts, and they did not describe where they bought those, or perhaps how they manufactured them.

When operating the radio on low (1-2 watt) power mounted with the Li-Ion Battery itself on a factory charger, the radio seems to perform well without damage to the battery over the long term. In addition, the battery is like having a mini-UPS to keep the radio up and running.

It's a variation on this theme, but I wish we had a way to share the battery power with the Raspberry Pi Zero W computer I run PiStar on. This would allow compact hotspots to run independently. I do accomplish this now by using an external phone LiIon battery.
