    Is it ok to leave the radio on while in the cradle charging?

    If I just want to have it on during the day as a scanner until I actually get a mobile or base unit.

    It's not recommended. Battery will not get a full charge. That's from the manual.
    Wheaties aren't made out of the same stuff today as they were 40 years ago.

    charge it overnight. I get more than a day on the battery when just scanning. Still I am considering a second battery
