    Battery Replacement SS UV-26

    Hi all,

    I managed to get my hands on a used SS UV26 since it was shipped overseas I bought it without batteries so I could reduce on the weight. (Batteries was dated 2005 so I intended to replace them anyway.)

    I know the recommend ones are the Genesis EP26. But have any of you guys managed to fit a cheaper alternative?

    I will be using this DPV for on month a year maximum so I was hopping to get a cheaper alternative since I'm a little afraid of the discharge they will be facing over 11 months without use.

    Any thoughts?

    I used yaesu's in my Gavin, not as high quality as the genesis but they were fine for my application. I would just check in with Rodney on the correct yaesus so your weighting isn't all messed up.
