How can I power walkie talkies (3 AAs each) using my vehicle cigarette lighter?
Motorola Talkabout T5200, 4.5V, uses 3 AA batteries. I would like to build a power unit that would plug into the vehicle dc outlet / cigarette lighter and continuously power a single unit. We use these on trips when we are follow one another or when we have multiple vehicles in a convoy but storing them with batteries in the vehicle for random use is problematic at best. http://reviews.cnet.com/two-way-radios/motorola-talkabout-t5200/1707-3502_7-6753112.html
This seems very doable but I sure don't know how and haven't been able to find directions online. Thanks for the help!!
