The BL-5L is designed for the Original UV-5R Series

The BL-5L adds Better Ergonomics

Not only does the BL-5L extend the battery life of your radio; but it also adds an additional 1.5″ of length and only 2 ounces when compared to the UV-5R with a stock BL-5 battery. This allows for a more solid feel in the hand when compared to using your radio with the stock BL-5 battery.

*The weight added is 2 ounces when compared to the stock BL-5 battery, the full battery weight is 4.5 ounces.

Multiple Charging Options

The BL-5L charges on the stock CH-5 battery charger that already is included with the UV-5R, UV-5X3, and BF-F8HP series radios. The BL-5L also allows for direct DC charging in the 2.5mm barrel plug on the side

The BL-5L more than doubles the battery life when compared to the stock BL-5. Average users can will be able to go 2 days without a charge; while light users can go a whole week without needing to charge your battery.
