All the markings/stamps appear legit.
I have it plugged into a Centech portable power supply right now; no overheating, smoke, fire, sparks or any other signs of the apocalypse, so I'm going to say this is a good purchase for me.
I've had Baofeng radios for the last 2 to 3 years since I got my Ham license again; couldn't see spending $$$$ on a wowzie zowie whiz bang handheld, when a Baofeng does everything I need it to do for a fraction of the cost. No problems yet with any of the original parts or accessories I've purchased from Baofeng.
The regulator does provide clean stable 8VDC to the radio with one major caveat: It WILL overheat and burn up if you use it to transmit for anything more than a few seconds every few minutes or so.
If you intend to use this power supply to transmit with your radio for any useable duration, the radio TX power MUST be set to low.
It's a decent package for the price and can be easily modified to dissipate the heat. Dropping the 14-16VDC vehicle voltage down to 8VDC is going to create heat. 5W out of the regulator will dissipate about 6-7W of heat. This builds up quickly inside a plastic box.
I used it for a 2K mile cross country trip with a 2 vehicle convoy (on the ham bands) and it worked fine. Bottom line is that it will work if you are aware of the limitations.
Update (2-23-2017): After using this headset for a few months I ran into a bit of a situation and immediately disposed of this. And for that I knocked my reading down to 3 stars. So, what happened? After along day of work I took out the ear piece and noticed my ear still felt funny. After a quick inspection my suspicion was confirmed. The plastic "bud" was left stuck in my ear. After a good laugh my family tried removing it, but to no avail. So, I made a trip to my doctor. His words, and I quote, "i've only had to use this device one other time in my practice. And that was to remove a toy out of a six year olds belly button..." So yeah. Buyer beware.
I bought 2 of these, the labels were slightly different and the LED flashlights had a different shade of blue.
It took a little bit of time for me to figure out to program form the keypad, but not as difficult as ssome people make it out to be.
I used the CHIRP software, but it at times has refused to recognise my radio with older versions of CHIRP.
The newest version of CHIRP as of this review can fix the lack of squelch these radios have out of the box.
I like the Baofeng software, but that doesn't seem to be able to fix the squelch issue.
The flashlight LED on the first radio failed, but that might have happened because the LED may have lost solder contact when the LED was bumped. The plastic peace on the wrist strap of the first radio fractured after a while.
On the second radio, the stock antenna failed on me.
The first radio's antenna is still intact, but I have replaced them both with these antennas here I have also reviewed: http://www.amazon.com/Female-Antenna-Walkie-Talkie-Radio/dp/B008P7YX4Y/
With the stock antenna, you will not get out more than a few blocks in an urban area VHF simplex even with the 4 watts, VHF is okay if you can reach high repeaters. UHF with stock antenna penetrates buildings fine, it will do atleast a mile simplex on UHF. With the replacement antenna so far I have been able to reach a VHF repeater 20 miles away.
With the Tram 1185 mobile magnet mount antenna, on VHF I have done simplex for about 15 miles in a flat area, and have been able to reach a repeater 100 miles away on VHF over flat terrain. In a hilly area on simplex with VHF and UHF I have been able to reach 2.5 miles with the radio on the other end just being inside the second story.
The car power adapter here only works for receiving, on transmitt it will shutdown the radio: http://www.amazon.com/EarlyBirdSavings-Battery-Adapter-Eliminator-Baofeng/dp/B009RCQWLI/ref=cm_cr-mr-title
The FM broadcast band(65-108mhz(some areas still with analog VHF low TV, audio from that might also be heard)) recieve is okay, they aren't the best recievers, but it is okay. Stock antenna isn't very useful for recieving, the replacement whips and mag mount I have mentioned do better.
Overall, like I've said they're okay radios.
For 30-40 dollars it is worth it, don't expect it to be on par with a Motorola or Kenwood that costs hundreds.
