No Dumb Questions! Hoarding Handheld Radio Batteries & Connecting Radios To Power.

How do we actually connect our radios to a power source? Also, should we have more than one handheld radio battery? Should we go a step further and actually have a stockpile?
Big thanks to ALL of you who have sent me emails. There are WAY more than I expected and pretty much every email deserves a vdideo like this and I’m getting to work on them!
