         I got mine at a hamfest about 5 years ago, still works well.  I 
use it in the truck to run my 706, XM, cell phone charger, etc.  I put a 
noise filter in line with the lead I use to keep it charged, and charge it 
from the truck system.  If I unplug it from the truck, I can still operate 
this stuff for close to 30 hours.
