Arrow BaoFeng UV-5R (& similar) discount batteries.

As I was looking around online at some UV-5R's I remembered a few of the sites like alibaba & others that have a lot of the stuff you find online or in places locally (like wal-mart, harbor freight, etc.) for much less. Usually the best way to get a steep discount is buying in bulk, but sometimes you can still save some buying only 1 or 2. While I wasn't able to find any really great deals on the radio's I did find that batteries were much cheaper. Some of them did require buying a few, like buying 7 of the larger 3800mah batts for $59 total ~$8.50 batt. Also there is one with the 2800mah batts with 5 for $38.50 ~$7.70/batt. As I plan on buying several, 5 & 7 are small enough lots for me to buy & get the discount. They have a lot of other accessories & stuff for them too.

Here's some 3800mah

I bought my UV 5R+ stuff years ago at https://www.radioddity.com/ I got a AA pack and an extra lithium battery, speaker mic's, better antennas, cigarette lighter adapter the USB cable I use with the free software (can't recall the name right now) to program the radio.

Slow china shipping but everything was good for the price I paid.
