Thanks to Nate for pointing out this new radio.

A new day, a new Chinese HT... this time it is the NKT NKT-R5. My best guess is that this is the company and the product page. The Transmission1 guys think it looks like a VX-8.

NKT-R3: UHF Micro Handheld

These VX-3R clones must be growing on trees. The NKT-R3 is a UHF 70cm only rig, but shares the popular micro HT form factor. One interesting note, it looks like the charger is made up of the wall wart and a USB cable. I would assume you can charge this radio via USB. I need to track down the power specs and see if the DC power plug is the same as the UV-3R. Like most of the Chinese handheld transceivers, this one includes an LED flashlight function or as they call it "LED ICLUMINATION".
