  1. I bought an MMDVM_BAT simplex and I am very happy. It's a great little MMDVM Hotspot. Only one problem I can find! Why does it automatically shutdown when you plug in the charger? Sometimes we might need to continue using it even after the battery has been depleted! With the automatic shutdown, we can't continue using it when we are charging it! Is there any way we can stop this easily? This ability for the Hotspot to continue operating while we are charging it would be very useful when we are on holiday! We all have a spare battery for our radios anyway so this ability I am proposing would be useful.
