    I want to use a phantom smart battery to power my GROUND STATION LAND-SIDE UNIT. I just need to connect to the smart battery and get two wires which I can connect to another device. Does this exist?

    Thanks much, Bob

    Now that that is hooked up, I get no flashing lights. Which is + and - on the ground-station power input? Maybe I have them reversed

    Works OK when attached via USB

    Sorry did you sort this out? You would have to turn the battery on first obviously.

    I bought a cheap USB battery charger which works, but I will try this one again - I don't think I turned the battery on!!
