Re: Kenwood D7

Thanks for all the message about the D7 battery life. At least I know that
mine is not broke.

Now, we need to find out who make a Lithium-ion battery that will fit!

Band A draws about 35 mA, and band B about 55 mA and the TNC about 10 mA.
WIth both bands running thats 90 mA and for a 600 mA battery, that works
out to about 6.6 hours.  8 AM to 3 PM is about 7 hours.  Looks like your
battery is right on spec...

Turn off Band B and it should last 600/35 or about 17 hours...
