[aprssig] Best TH-D7A after-market battery

I agree with the Batteries America responses. I picked up a 7.2/1800 and 
charger one year at Dayton, and the 9.6/1450 in Orlando the following 
year. Their charger works well on both batteries, as well as the stock 
Kenwood battery.

I'm not sure it would properly charge on the Kenwood charger, simply 
because Kenwood only seems to make NiCd batteries for that radio, and 
all of the after-market models are NiMH. I believe BA makes a lithium 
for that radio, which of course would require a specific charger. As 
good as the other two batteries are (just got home from an MS bike tour, 
   where one battery got a full day's workout with life to spare), I 
can't justify the expense of the lithium to get just a little more run 
time, albeit far less weight.
