    Delivery time was four weeks, the radio looks neat. Unfortunately the output power is not 18 Watt but maximum around 5 Watt on all frequencies at the highest setting in the menu. So there is not much difference from the outside with the comparable other radios.

    excellent buy for the price. Had no problem programing it with the UV-5R cable with Chirp set on BF-58 radio. Problem with the CHIRP is that this radio BF-5PLUS is not listed yet and the BF-58 software will not allow me to program in the 220Mhz frequencies but okay on manual programing. As before on the reviews push and hold the top left pad on the keypad and switch on the on switch to switch between VFO or Memory settings. On the VFO you program the channel manually and store to memory. This radio does not have two banks of memory A and B as far as I found so far. The radio I received is completely Black without orange outline on the keypads. The instruction booklet does list all the functions of the radio but lacks instructions getting to the VFO mode and state it is a TRI-MODE radio 2M 1.25 M and 70CM bands Shipping was very fast less than 7 days but held by the custom for 4 days.

    It works great, built very well, virtually endless battery life, but remains a scam as big as a house sold as 18w output ma and 5w thieves

    Beware: the user manual provided is only in Chinese, and the model BF-S5plus is totally unknown so far in the market. I spent a considerable amount of time in order to find the essential function: how to toggle between channel mode and frequency mode because there is no button for that purpose. Spoiler: finally I found in a comment posted by an Amazon customer, for another model from Baofeng: Switch off. Switch on while keeping MENU pressed. Please provide an English manual on-line.

    overall it looks good, I’m not sure it’s really waterproof the accessories cover is a simple plastic cover with no rubber seal, also the colour is not as crisp as the pictures, it looks like it’s been left in the the shop window for a few years and really faded.

    Arrived on time and works very well. Covers 136/174 200/259 400/520 which was a surprise as the ad did not specify that it was a TRI band radio. Programmed with Chirp using the uv-5r cable and the uv-9r settings. Job done.

    The product is as advertised, surprisingly small and heavy!
