    Hi, I've been searching recently waterproof radios up to PLN 300 and from what I see Baofengs are subject to pervasive criticism (I do not say that it is wrong), but I am however most interested in them for what reason ...

    At a price of +/- 50 Bucks, these two waterproof Baofengs (UV-XR and UV-9r) range
    I can't decide for a few reasons, including
    - UV-XR
    advantages: 10W, 4800 mAh
    disadvantages: no battery available on the market, mixed opinions about its range
    - UV-9R
    advantages: relatively good reviews, available on the market,
    disadvantages: 2800 mAh, 8W

    Anyone have one of them?

    I have baofeng UV-5R and I can say it is waterproof.
    I left him accidentally in the rain, I just forgot about him.
    Of course, everything works as if it was flooded.
    I don't count the falls that don't do anything to him anymore.
    Of course, a good price / quality ratio.
