I just received my factory built KX3. Rig powers on with Eneloop batteries installed. When I remove batteries and connect at 12VDC battery the rig does not power on. I measured voltage with VOM at plug end and reads 12.58VDC and connect to KX3 9-15VDC receptical and does not power on. I switched to another 12VDC source and same result.
