    battery pack for SQBox radio

    Hi there.. been searching around and found a source of the above on Ebay.
    But during my travels I also saw a note on another forum saying that the radio will not work with the battery without first updating the FW..
    I don't want to update to the UE system, I prefer the original setup.
    So..
    Can anyone confirm that the SQBox radio works with battery power AND on FW 7.7.3-r16676 or similar..!???
    cheers CD

    Yes. That note about updating firmware was probably from the very early days of the Radio.

    Bought this at amazon.ca in April 2019, seems to be working well for my purposes, although my Radio is usually plugged into wall power

    I bought the battery below from amazon.co.uk in 2012, still giving me good service tho' probably charge does not last as long it used to.
