Good day to all. I present my first review on mysku to the public. So, Christmas is over, the mail has opened, and I took a small box from there early in the morning. I unpacked the houses (it was packed well, with reliable protection from the post office of Russia with pimply polyethylene). And that's what I saw there:
The box has not suffered. Open:
We get the contents:
Included: the radio itself, the battery, the antenna, the metal clip with two bolts, the charger with the 12V euro plug, the charging glass, the instruction in English, and the gifts: a company notebook, pen, a strange cardboard pendant in the form of a radio.
Next, collect the radio and turn it on:
The screen backlighting is uniform, pleasant orange.(but with a little light on the right), the buttons are highlighted in white. On the screen we can see the name of the channels (or the frequency, depending on how you set it up. Before the review I connected the radio to the computer and flashed into it all the channels I needed). The buttons are pressed nicely, with characteristic clicks, tactile sensations on the level. The body is made of black textured plastic with red inserts on the sides (at first I thought that the inserts are made of rubber, but no, there is the same plastic). Let's look at the radio more in detail from all sides:
Front - display, control buttons, LEDstates (red when transmitting, green when received, speaker grille covered with metal mesh, manufacturer's logo, microphone hole. On the right side we see the call and monitoring buttons are quite large, they are pressed easily in gloves (unfortunately they are not marked). Behind - metal clip for fastening on a belt (after processing with a file), removable battery. Left connector for a headset. (Unfortunately with a plastic cover). Access to the connector is possible only after unscrewing the screw.
And now let's take a look at some details:
The screen is closed with thick transparent plastic, it looks reliable. But the transition between red and black plastic in one place looks sloppy.
Another discovered a small gap (about 0.5 mm) between the back cover (where the clip is attached) and the main body. In the gap you can see the inner aluminum case.
The clip did not coincide with the mounting holes, I had to modify the clip with a file.
And now let's compare with the radios from QuanshengTG-UV2 and Quansheng TG-6A. Our radio is slightly smaller and lighter than the older Kvasheng. Weight 254,5g. against 264.1g. Quansheng TG-UV2. For comparison - a small one-band Quansheng TG-6A weighs 216.6g.
And the battery (78.7g.), By the way its capacity is 1400mA at a voltage of 7.4V: (Kvashengi - 85g. 2000mA, and 69.8g. - 1500mA, voltage 7.2V).
Look like that's it. Now about the pros and cons:
+ The quality of communication is excellent, good modulation (as in the case of an adult kvashenga)
+ loud speaker
+ good comfortable keyboard and screen
+ lights of three colors to choose from (orange, blue and lilac)
+ wide frequency range (136-174 MHz 5W, 400-470 MHz 4W)
+ two transmitter power levels
+ convenient menu (unlike kvashengov)
+ group calls, personal calls, service calls.
+ fm radio
+ Alarm, alarm ...
+ nice design
+ additional gifts from the store.
- body with a small gap
- I had to finish the clip
- there is no lace for the hand (and there is also no fastening for the lace)
- plastic headset plug, requires a screwdriver
- The battery is smaller than kvashing. 1500 against 2000.
In general, I liked the radio, thoughprice 110 dollars, I would not buy it. I bought the stock for $ 55, for this price is just a great option. Similar kvasheng costs from 70 to 100 dollars depending on the seller, but there, too, not everything goes smoothly. One of the two copies of Kvashenga floats the frequency of quartz (on temperature). This trouble was discovered at a ski resort.
Next, I will test the declared capacity of the battery and the effect of temperature drops on reception.
