The Next Generation UV-5R
The BF-F8HP is a dual band handheld radio that improves on the UV-5R with more transmit power based on a new generation chipset – along with new concierge service.
Beyond the 3 Power Levels (1, 4, 8 watt) it also includes: a new 2000mAh Battery, an in-depth user guide, concierge support, and the High Gain V-85 Antenna. All while still maintaining full backward accessory compatibility with all prior UV-5R accessories.
The BF-F8HP has the latest N5R-340A firmware not available on any other model.
30% Larger Battery
The BF-F8HP includes a new battery pack that still provides a long lasting radio experience; even while using high power.
Average Battery Life:
UV-5R High (4W): 18 Hours.
BF-F8HP High (8W): 20 Hours.
BF-F8HP Mid (5W): 24 Hours.
The large battery gives you peace of mind to use the built-In flashlight or even the built in FM radio – and still have the power to communicate throughout the day without recharging.
In Depth Documentation and Concierge Support
The BF-F8HP was designed in the USA and because not everyone is a radio-expert we really wanted to focus on providing an easier user experience! That starts with the new in-depth manual that guides you through the capabilities and customization of the BF-F8HP. On top of that the BF-F8HP also includes exclusive concierge customer help and warranty support. This concierge service is only available on select BaoFeng models such as the BF-F8HP
