Question about Sangean ATS 818 AM/FM/SW Radio
I have a Sangean ATS 818cs portable radio but no external lead to provide 6 volts input. Can I use any 6V input?
Yes you can use any 6 volt DC for your radio but the most IMPORTANT thing to remember is to connect the terminals in the correct direcction. First of all you can solder a red wire from the positve terminal of the battery and a black wire from the negative terminal of the battery. This must be connected to the source of your 6 volt battery.You can buy a good DC jack socket female to be fitted into the vacant spot of your radio and use a male jack to supply the DC. Only be carefully to see the polarity. To avoid any reversing of polarity use can even connect a diode in the forwarrd bias towards the positve terminal. This will prevent any wrong connection of polarity to damage your set. Helpful? Good day
