What do you do when the power is out and you need to recharge the battery for your Baofeng UV-5R handheld radio?

recharging Baofeng radioOne method I use is to recharge the Baofeng battery from a Blackweb Lithium Ion battery. Baofeng batteries need to be recharged using the Baofeng battery base and in this case the Baofeng USB Smart Charger Transformer Cable.

Simply plug in the USB charging cable into one of the USB ports on the Lithium Ion battery pack and the other end into the port on the back of the Baofeng charger base.
