I suspect they were designed this way, only for warranty period.
Alexander Kostromin
The batteries came semi-charged, so my wife and I tested them out in the neighborhood and from about 2-3 miles away, they worked great.
James E. Johnson
The battery power is very strong and hardly needs charging after a whole weekend.

I had reasonable expectations for two-way radios like the consumer-grade Cobra Li7200 when I bought them. Based on my research, I knew that the whimsical claims on the bubble packs of 10's of miles of range (27 miles in the case of these radios) were pure fantasy. In urban areas, a mile or maybe two of range is the best you get; in more open areas, a little more. I also had a good idea of how the "privacy" codes work (they don't keep other people from hearing your broadcasts - they allow you to tune out other people), the GMRS licensing requirements ($85/five years to the FCC to use the higher power GMRS frequencies, and the basic operation of two-way radios in general (they aren't cell phones - you can't listen and talk at the same time, you have to pause after pressing the transmit key, the voice quality varies with transmitter power, distance, and intervening obstacles/terrain).

Based on my limited experience with these radios, I'm not disappointed. They worked fine on a recent vacation to a remote lake area. We used them to communicate between our rental house and the beach, while hiking on trails in the mountains [big kids and little kids move at different paces], between vehicles while caravanning to/from an off-road park, and to keep in touch while off-roading. While off-roading, one of the other vehicles had Motorola consumer-grade GMRS radios, and the Cobras and the Motorolas interoperated just fine, including both channel numbers (same channel number to frequency assignments) and CTCSS "privacy" codes. We probably never used them more than 1 to 2 miles apart, but we weren't going for any distance records.

The NOAA weather radio capability of the Cobra LI7200s was a key item for me.

For the price, excellent quality. I have gotten about a three mile range through dense forests and housing developments where other similar units couldn't handle it. Recommend.

I bought these specifically to use while skiing in Colorado. I was able to communicate with the other unit from everywhere across two peaks of the ski resort. When I went to a third peak (putting 1 peak between units) I couldn't commnicate with the other unit. 27 mile range it isn't. In the mountains over variable terrain and trees you're looking at more like a mile. However, it was perfectly acceptable performance or the ski resort application. I had no trouble communicating with someone at the base of the mountain when I was getting off of the highest ski lift. Easy to use & figure out. I'd recommend it.

I live in a very hilly area that doesn't lend itself to quality communication (even with cell phones). These radios are capable of 1 mile clear communication in a hilly terrain. I'm not sure of the range in open areas, but I'm sure it's much further.
They appear to be well made. One improvement would be to have a rubber ring surround the perimeter of the radio in case of a fall on a hard surface.
Radios charge and when almost fully charged, the leds get dim and eventually go out (when fully charged).
The li-on rechargeable battery easily comes out of its compartment without removing the belt clips.
Sound quality is excellent! I have a more expensive pair of Motorola radios with very poor quality audio.

I initially purchased these sometime last year when I was assembling my survival bag/bug out bag for emergency situations so it sat in my pack for a while. Then I started a new job a month ago and now need to use these every couple of days if not everyday since my coworker's 2 month old Motorola Talkabout radios crap out on him every time and lose power. He even told me he liked how clear the sound was, the nice big display and the design of it. I already know about the REALISTIC range of most 2 way radios so I'm not disappointed in these. I usually just need to communicate with coworkers on different floors or areas in or around the same building. I haven't tested how long these can run since I charge them up every couple of days and use varies.

One small issue I might have is that the charging light on the charging pod doesn't always light up fully for one of the radios. Other times it does. I know its still charging it though because I can see the light illuminating a bit and it works the next day. Worried me a bit upon first couple charges but I'm used to it now.

Also, sometimes not loud enough for me at the highest colume setting of #8. I usually don't need it too loud since I work in office and dormitory occupied spaces but once in a while I'll be located right by an air vent/air conditioner or something and I need to hold the speaker right to my ear.

Bottom line: Its dependable and reception is clear.

FYI, just like other 2 way type radios, these can be used with other non Cobra brand radios on the same channel so don't throw them BOTH out if 1 handset happens to crap out in the future like another reviewer did. Keep that 1 and use it for the weather channel or use it with other hand helds found later on.
