Very Poor Quality Product
This has to be the only modern product that becomes unserviceable as a result of contacts failing due to battery corrosion, and it happens in less than 6 months. This used to be a common problem 50+ years ago, but the industry has since fixed that.
As I used my SP-400 as an emergency radio only, it means that I have to keep the batteries in a separate container and I would have to put them in the case when needed. Not quite practical.

Cheaply made
Not a question of if, but when it will break. They should just ship the radio new with 3-4 cases and it might last through the 5 year warranty. Keep some electrical your flight bag and just tape it to the radio. Otherwise, you will pull the radio out, when you really need it and it will fall to the floor of the cockpit. I am very careful with my gear, and mine has broken multiple times. Was resigned to using tape to secure the case, until the screen died on the radio and they replaced the case at the same time. Now the whole bottom of the case fell out (pretty sure just fatigue from the pressure of the batteries) and it is no longer under warranty. Good thing it has a 5 year warranty, because you will need it. Heavily taped once again and waiting for a new piece of cheap plastic ($30.00) to hold the batteries. When this one fails, I will purchase a better radio, and not from Sporrty’s. They should give rebates for a better radio to anyone who owns the SP-400.

Spare Case
Glad that this was available, my original case was destroyed when one of the batteries leaked. Easy fix, and it worked great.

Battery Case.
The battery case attachment prong (which holds the battery pack up to the radio and the electrical connections) is under designed, often come undone, and prone to breaking off (mine did) and so I had to buy a replacement. It is the weak piece to an otherwise great radio.

Overpriced poor quality battery case.
I bought this to replace a broken battery case.
I like the SP-400 radio but the battery case is not durable at all. Cheap hard plastic that gets brittle in cold climates. If it would be rubberized and softer it would survive a fall. Something I expect in this price range.

Way over priced.
Had to buy it because the one sent with the radio stopped working.

Radio is not all that Sporty's makes it out to be.

It does exactly what it is supposed to do and is an exact replacement for the one that came with the radio.
