Needed a new Battery for my HT radio

Well I needed a new Battery for my VX-5. I went into a Batteries+ plus store and find that they are now $104, to much if you ask me. So I decided to be cheap…

I built a new Battery see the pics below

As you can see from the radio display it is getting 13 Volts, this should do nicely, now I just have to rig up a holster to hold both the radio and battery, and a way to be 100% sure that the power cord does not come out.

Well to truth it really is not a battery as the radio is concerned but a portable charger.
