Baofeng UV-82: Charging Problem

Hans had a problem charging his new UV-82 battery. He took apart the charger and thinks he found the problem. I think if he looks more closely at the battery, he will see he just wasn't patient enough.


  1. Really surprised that Radio-Mart hasn't already announced their "exclusive" availability of the new Baofeng 280,000 mAh battery.

    Their video commercial (posted on YouTube) still incorrectly claims the UV-82 ships with a 2800 mAh battery, which is also incorrect.

  2. I think Baofeng is just like radio-mart, prone to wild exaggeration .....

  3. Lol that is a huge battery, I wish my cellphone had 280,000 mah xD I ordered 4 of the uv82 radios about 2 weeks ago and am still waiting... RadioMart imo has great prices but as far as customer service'd get more help from your cell providers ivr

  4. I just took delivery of my Baofeng UV-82L 2 days ago. I checked the battery and it has a sticker identifying it as model BL-5, capacity: 3000 mAh. Do you know about these or is a "miss-print" too?

    1. It's probably not a miss-print, but a scam. Only 1800mAh batteries have been made.
