Merlin adapters fit between the radio and battery box, and use standard full-size rechargeable BB-2590/U or BB-390B batteries.
Merlin adapters are able to adapt power input from a variety of AC and DC sources, including solar.
Initially designed to power field radios, Merlin can now simultaneously charge reserve batteries, and run tactical laptop computers and other electronic accessories.
Merlin adapters are ruggedized and “hot-swappable” allowing for uninterrupted power supply during battery exchange. The adapters configure automatically ensuring reliable power transfer and ease of use regardless of conditions.
