 Baofeng UV-5R V2+

The Baofeng UV-5R V2+ is one of the latest 2016 UV-5R style radios from Baofeng. The transceiver is a micro-miniature multi-band FM transceiver with extensive receive frequency coverage, providing local-area two-way amateur communications along with unmatched monitoring capability. One of the primary advantages of the UV-5R V2+ over the UV-5RA and older models is the UV-5R V2+'s inherent compatibility with Baofeng 7.4V 3800mah and 3600mah extended batteries. This feature really separates the UV-5R V2+ into a class of its own able to perform under heavy use for several hours longer than its predecessors.

  • Frequency Range: 136-174 / 400-479.995 MHz.
  • Latest firmware Metallic upgraded, durable housing. English user manual included.
  • Compatible with UV-5R 3800mah and 3600mah Extended Batteries
