Great battery

I received my battery for my FT3D. Still on it's first charge and haven't used it much since I got the Kenwood D-75. So far, it's going strong. Having the bigger battery helps with the grip, especially with being a right handed person. I don't cover the microphone on the radio with my ring finger as easily compared to the original battery.

The fit is a bit tight, but no issues getting it installed. So far, I'm liking the larger battery. Much longer run time. Can't wait until hunting season is here because my FT3D is my go to HT for the field. With the larger battery, it should last all day maybe longer. I'm hoping for a battery for the Kenwood D-75, wink wink!!!

High capacity FT5 battery.

Great product. Very long lasting

Nice Battery

I appreciate the higher Ah. The plastic is a bit stiffer than the factory batteries which makes it slightly harder to remove. Not a problem if you have strong hands and short nails. Cheers

Nice looking, works great!

Worth the wait

Absolutely brilliant and I hope this is made for more HT models. The battery is much thicker than stock but it seems to last forever. Probably more than 24 hours on receive. USPS gave me trouble but the battery did eventually arrive. Took a few weeks. Not a big deal.
