4.0 our of 5 stars
This is a great little item that is very easy to use, and I'm sure it will provide years of helpful service. The only negative issue I have is that I ordered a Green model, but a Gray/Black one was shipped to me by Amazon!!

The internal battery is a Ni-MH battery. Under normal use conditions the battery can be charged and discharged 500 times or more. However, if the battery is left to sit completely discharged for more than a couple of months the chemistry in the battery will be altered permanently causing the battery to lose the ability to store a significant amount of charge. It is best for you to service your device regularly, meaning that they should take the radio out and charge it completely using the USB cable at least once every 6 months, or better, once every quarter.
