Kenwood NX-220E2 Battery Option

There are three battery options available for the NX-220E2. If the radio will be used for long periods of time and then recharged once per day, the nickel metal hydride battery option may be suitable and may last longer. However, if the radio will be used for short periods of time or charged regularly, then a lithium battery will probably be more suitable.
