Further to the other question in this category right now I'm wondering if the Baofengs are any good?

What I've noticed in the past with the Puxings etc is that the chargers are stupid (never turn from red to green to indicate a charged battery) and I'm wondering if the Baofengs suffer from the same malaise? I've also noticed that the battery life indicator on the transceiver itself is unreliable. Does anyone know how the Baofengs are with this?

I'm interested in these radios:-

I've got the UV3R, UV5R, BF888S and GT3 models. They all work very well and I've had no problems with any of them.

If I had to pick the best one I'd say the GT3 which seems to have he best receive.
