      What I've done is took my pcb to a TV repair shop and they soldered some
      wires to the battery connections. I then fitted some battery holders to the
      wires and these were located under the radio area( I don't have AC)
      This is a good solution, since can use normal 1.5v rechargable batteries and
      they are then easy to charge/replace without removal of instruments.
