Thank you. You are right, reducing the power would have the same result. I was just trying something different.
I am trying to get away with using an external cheaper battery, to be part of a go box I am building.
My box is going to be capable of running on Solar or AC (power supply). As soon as I figure out how to connect the solar controller and the PWRgate PG-40s to the same battery.
I wanted to eliminate the power supply out of the equation. Thanks to all the responses.

|Hello, I would like to take advantage of the low power consumption of the Yaesu FT-897 while using batteries. But, do not want to use the internal batteries. In other words. I like to power the radio through the Batt. plug and not through the 13.5v power connector.
Could I make a power cable to connect to an outside battery, such as seal lead?
Would a different Amp Hour rating would damage the radio?
