The Yaesu FT-60R Ni-Mh FNB-83 battery can most certainly be charged via the FT-60R DC Power Jack while the battery is attached to the FT-60R, by using the Yaesu NC-88b wall-wart which came supplied with the earlier units for just this purpose. I know, because i own two of the earlier FT-60R's and have charged them for over 8 years in this manner!
I am not certain if it is accurate, but I've read that when Yaesu started supplying the PA-48B and the SBH-13 with the FT-60R (versus the NC-88b walwart) that it removed the internal charging circuitry from the FT-60R, requiring the SBH-13 cradle/PA-48B combo to be used as the means of charging the battery (and then the SAD-25, I guess). But again, I am not certain if this information is accurate.
My manual says "Copyright 2011" on the back cover, so I guess that I'm going to have to take a look at the newer manual, assuming one exists, to see what it says about charging.
It just seems odd to me that the newer models can't still use the NC-88B for charging via the DC power port... But then again, I need to carefully watch my earlier model FT-60R while it is charging via the NC-88B into the DC Power input jack to prevent it from over charging the FNB-83 Ni-Mh (10 hours max per the manual), because it will continue charging the battery just as long as the NC-88B is attached to it, and Ni-Mh type batteries can be ruined by long term overcharging. Don't ask me how I know...
Which is why Yaesu most likely changed its design in the first place, I'm guessing?
