This starts to become an interesting question: what is the capacity of the Baofeng UV-82 battery?
My review sample, which is on its way, is supposedly equipped with an 1800mAh battery. The Baofeng UV-82 batteries sold by Radio-Mart show a sticker stating 2800mAh. To add to the confusion both batteries share the same model number (BL-8), which doesn’t make sense to me.
1000mAh is a substantial difference in capacity. This means that they can’t be the same size or weight. Something has to give. We won’t know for sure until DHL drops the radio on my doorstep. If there are owners of the 2800mAh version willing to measure and weigh them (preferably in mm and grams), I’d appreciate it.
