We have all been there before, we’re about to do something on our phone and the battery is completely drained. Imagine being in a survival situation where you need to be able to communicate with people using your ham radio and having the same issue. With the BaoFeng BL-5L High Capacity Battery you will be sure to have the power you need all day long!
Increased battery capacity
This extended power source gives you 3800mAH of capacity. Compared to the 2200mAH battery that comes with the BaoFeng BF-F8HP you will receive half as much of a capacity boost! This extended capacity will allow you to listen and talk longer in an emergency or survival situation. In addition, when out backpacking the extended capacity may reduce your need to bring extra batteries or charging supplies.
The fit on this battery is as easy as pushing the button on the old battery and removing it. After setting aside the old battery, you just need to insert the new battery after raising the belt clip. You are now ready to talk, monitor, or listen longer on your BaoFeng BF-F8HP or UV-5R radio than you were able to previously!
Genuine BaoFeng BL-5L Extended Capacity Battery
We received these batteries directly from BaoFeng Tech. You can’t go wrong with that. These batteries are designed for your radio and will fit in your BF-F8 and UV-5R ham radio models. These batteries also include a 2.5mm socket on the side from which you can charge your battery while on the go! Although there is not a charging cable included you can be sure to find one on many fine online establishments. Be sure to get yourself a fused DC transformer that is regulated to an 8.4 volt output. We don’t want to fry your battery or your radio after all. We will not be held responsible for your trying this with a 12 volt output car charger.
