The BadAss black clamshell allows you to power your Bendix King Radio with AA batteries. Slide the battery case open to accept (9) AA batteries, then close the case and use the loaded clam shell, just as you would the original OEM battery. AA Alkaline batteries discharge at a higher rate than rechargeable batteries under high current usage, such as keying up your radio. This means that clamshells discharge rates are even more difficult to calcullate than rechargeable batteries. Under a 5/5/90 duty cycle the clamshell loade with brand new quality AA alkaline batteries will last about as long as a 2,200mAh rechargeable battery, but those same AA batteries loaded into a AA battery pack and put into service on a radio that undergoes a 10/10/80 duty cycle will only last about as long as a 1400mAh rechargeable battery.
