Battery

Battery:
"I was tired of my standard battery going dead in the middle of transmissions, so I ordered this last week."
_
"In addition, when you (as an Amazon customer) point out their listing error (shipping a non-Baofeng battery, shipping a less than advertised 3600mAH model (vs. the actual Baofeng 3800mAH model that was advertised on the listing), and shipping an Extended Battery that won't work on the UV-5RA radios that they shipped with them in the same box), they claim that:a) Baofeng doesn't even make an Extended Battery (funny since I own several already with Baofeng Electronic's label on the inside of the case and Baofeng's name imprinted into the back of the plastic battery case), andb) if I'm not happy I should pay to ship my order back to them (this is how they treat a customer that ordered multiple radios, extended batteries, and programming cables all at once and paid over $117 in shipping fees?"
_
"Nice battery."
_
"A great battery except it has to be modified to fit the Baofeng UV5R"
_
"Exactly what was expected...Fit radio perfectly, and with 1:2 battery setting, it lasted over 16 hours! "
_
"It is an excellent upgrade to the original battery."
_
"Ok, I still carry my spare but still, it is a great battery! "
