Hi, Looking to power my FT-857 from a 4 pack 14.8v 30C li-po battery.
Have just got my hands on a KBPC3506 35A bridge rectifier.
I am now going to ask you a couple of silly questions.
- Li-po’s have a red and black lead. Fair enough, but they all have a connector block also wired to the cell. What is this connector block for?
- I take it that I feed the +ve of the battery to the -ve of the bridge rectifier, as I am trying to achieve a volts drop or have I gone round the bend. Any ideas on the rectifier woill be much appreciated, so I don’t over supply the radio on top of a summit.
