After the video, it was time to make the text review about TCA PRC-152 radio, and it will be extensive too. Let’s go!
J.K. Army sent us the replica of the PRC-152 radio made by TCA to make the proper. For now I bring you this unboxing (Spanish audio, english subs) speaking about some of its features and my first impressions.
Everything arrives inside a cool plastic hard-case with foam covered interior, perfectly protected.
This PRC-152 from TCA is a functional replica of a well-known radio. The upper body is manufactured in aluminium CNC.
Lower body is the battery case and it’s made of plastic. Radio is powered by 4 Li-Ion 3.7V batteries type 18650 (not included). This battery pack is (theoretically) compatible with the real radio.
To charge the batteries we have that small accessory (on the left, over the lower body) and a power cord with an USA plug, rest of the world will need an adapter. Charging accesory also features an USB port, which makes me think battery could be used as a power-bank. Pretty cool if that’s the case.
One of the manufacturer’s goals is tho achieve a good durability and toughness: shockproof, dustproof and waterproof. Protection level is IP-X7.
As always, I’ll try to make the review ASAP. Meanwhile, you can red user manual in J.K. Army website.
