Baofeng Extended Battery Pack

I bought a couple of these off eBay and they arrived today so I thought I'd share some thoughts:
  • They fit well on the UV-5R with no looseness around the connection.
  • They charge off the regular UV-5R chargers.
  • They don't fit on the UV-5RA as they don't quite click in to place.
  • There is a charging plug in the side of the battery but the adapter on the UV-5R charger doesn't fit in there.

I'm really happy with these, they extend the transmitting time and the overall look and feel of the radio. They make it look more substantial due to being longer in length.

I made a video for YouTube:



Thanks for reading!
