    Yes. When plugged in it's powered off of the wall power while it also charges the battery. Do you mean to say that you've never actually played the Radio while it was plugged in?
    I was referring to the VAP11G-300 and whether it could be connected to the power outlet on the radio when in battery mode. Never mind

    My bad. I wasn't paying attention to the conversation.

    It won't work on battery. The power-in of the radio is not a power-out when on battery.
    If you want to be mobile, the wlanpoke script might be a solution, even if not perfect. Alternatively you can power the vonets via an USB powerbank.

    Thanks
    I installed the wlanpoke patch yesterday and I am getting much better reception with almost no buffering or dropouts. I have not tried the radio outside where I was having the most difficulty.I am hoping the TPLink extender I recently purchased will help

    All other three VAP11G-300 are running without problem and are not running hot.
    I think the "G" version is a good option if the wlanpoke script cannot solve the dropouts. Also Vonet regularly updates the firmware and you can program the Vonets that they connect to the Access Point with the strongest signal if you have several ones.
    Thus overall a good solution for Radios, however use the G version not the N version of the Vonets...
    My VAP11N-300 died after less than a year of use. I didn't both trying to return it saying as I'm using it out of spec. I bought a TP-Link passthrough powerline adapter instead. It's a little bulkier at the wall socket, but it's not too bad.

    Meanwhile, my power supply failed on one of my Radios and the other Radio (which has been sat on my desk unpowered for a few months) is refusing to power on. I need to debug that next. Ugh.
