Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
These units feel quite sturdy. Ordered 5 and each worked just fine with my UV-5Rs and 888s'. Speaker and mic work fine, there is even an LED to tell you when you are transmitting
Cons:
These things are TINY, my hands are obviously too big to use these for long periods of time, but for just clipping to a strap for occasional use it's ok. The LED only lights when transmitting, not receiving There is a tiny loop of wire on the bottom that looks like it could be easily caught on things if out in the bush - might be a problem in the long run, but for now they haven't caused a problem for me.
Other:
I wish the LED would light for receiving, would be a nice touch. And a cover to protect that little wire bit on the bottom of the speaker would be a good idea.
Bottomline:
for the price these are great and do the job fine.
