Top Positive Review

Bought a clock for my senior father (large display) that konked out a few months in – the display just ‘went’. The return and refund process was simple (UPS drop off, and once scanned, refund was in my amazon account). would use again for electronics, especially when not recognizing the brand name.

Top Critical Review

I trusted that this warrantee would cover a power converter for overseas travel and work in Afghanistan in the Middle East. When the items stop working in less than two months, I tried to invoke the warrantee which only resulted in this company and Amazon pointing the finger at each other. Meanwhile I am halfway around the world in support of our military forces as a contractor, unable to convert from 220 V to 110 V in the course Of my daily work effort.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can it be charged with a solar charger?
Answer: No and yes. The small battery that comes with it cannot, but the bl-5l extended battery can be charged with the bt1013 USB cable plugged into a solar power cell.

Do this use the same battery as the baofeng uv-5r?
Answer: Dear Sir,

Yes Sir, the batteries are the same (compatible) for all uv-5r models, other accessories for current radio are compatible to other uv-5r radios too.

Regards, Mirkit team.

What firmware verson does this radio have?
Answer:

Dear Sir,

Thank you for the question. Currently the firmware version is BFP3-23.

You can always check the current version of your radio`s firmware using menu options.
??

Can this be locked down and safely used by travelers, campers, hikers, etc without any sort of license?
Answer:

To be in FCC compliance, your radio needs to be certified for FRS, MURS, or GMSR. These radios are not. The intuition should be that, since these devices can operate out of compliance in those bands, they will not be certified. That said, I do not know how a listener, without visual inspection of the radio, would kn??

what exacly does the mirkit-channelist firmware do?
Answer: It’s just an 8w version of the uv5r. (Supposedly, I have yet get to test actual output) you still need to download chirp to program, do NOT use the included software!!!
