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.
