Completely satisfactory - also, buying tips
on September 1, 2013
I have bought several brands of 2-way radios over the years. My wife & I use them when shopping, for example, "Do we need apples?" I recently dropped and broke one of my radios so I am buying a replacement pair (even tho I only need one). I'm quite satisfied with Uniden, but this time I'm buying non-rechargable. The rechargable batteries die much sooner than alkaline batteries, eg, shortly after we go into a mall and the charger is still at home..... Be aware that the advertised range for all brands are exaggerated. Radios advertised as "8 mile range" actually reach about 2-4 blocks in my neighborhood. Also, the signals go thru wooden walls OK, but not thru walls containing steel beams, like in office buildings or schools or cruise ships.
