Baofeng UV-5R: High Capacity Battery

Want a higher capacity battery? Want your UV-5R to look like a Zack Morris phone? Why not do both!

Try the 7.4V 3600mAH Ultra High Double Capacity Battery from RadioShop888.

  1. I've seen them, but I'd rather buy an extra 1800mAH pack. The UV-5R starts to look a bit too silly with this monster attached to it ;)

  3. Very retro. Makes the new radio look like an old Motorola Police "Brick" radio

  5. The handshape is more better than the old, small one,
    the time for using is more longer than the old ones for 2 times.
    After installing this battery, the radio look extremely Professional!

  6. To me I think it makes the UV-5R look more like a Motorola Astro Saber. If I ever get a UV-5R I'll have to pick up the extended battery pack.
