Re: FT-60R Changes Charging

When did the FT60 start coming with a drop in charger and is it the same charger used for the FT-250?
I'll assume from your post the charger is a smart charger, is it a fast charger as well?

The new production models of the FT-60R - ones with the drop-in charger included - will NOT charge a battery through the side jack any longer.
You can use the side jack to power the radio - but NOT to charge.
It is a California thing ... requiring such charging systems to have a "shut off" of some sort.
