I have a Midland Alan 42DS handheld that I want to use at home but need a suitable power supply with a cigarette socket connection.

The supplied power adapter is a charger only - it won’t power the device.

Manual is of little help - I got a 10amp supply but it produces a lot of noise and I’m not sure if that amount of current would damage the device as it doesn’t appear to specify a rating.

Manual also quotes “Direct plug-in ac/dc power supply must be used for disconnecting the transceiver from the mains”

What the hell does that mean?

Any advice appreciated.
