I am writing this in the hope that it will help some other buyer's of this product.
There is a place on the belt clip to place a wrist strap. However, no wrist straps come with this model. I had wrist straps that came with my older Cobra 950DX model and transferred them to this model.

The reason I bought this model is that it had the longest advertised range that still used AAA rechargeable batteries. It does say in the manual to "Use only the supplied rechargeable batteries and charger for recharging your Cobra microTALK radio." Now I know why! I tried to use my duracell AAA rechargeable batteries that were fully charged. No lights came on the charger and the batteries would not charge. AAA rechargeable batteries should be interchangeable-right? The Duracell batteries are 800mah 1.2 volts and the supplied rechargeables are 600mah 1.2 volts. If you look at the batteries in the illustration, you will note that the bottom 3/8" of the battery is silver in color. This is a continuous wrap from the bottom negative terminal. On the lower left inside the battery compartment of the radios is a contact that makes contact with that lower 3/8" of the battery. Without making that contact the charger lights and charger will not work. You can wrap some aluminum foil around the one duracell or generic AAA rechargeable battery that makes that contact and everything works. I can only figure that Cobra tried to make everyone buy their OEM batteries for replacement. Personally, I think this is stupid. The advantage of the AAA rechargeable batteries is that they can be easily found and purchased if needed.

The radios work although I have not done any distance range tests. I also wish they had the vibration alert on this model.

I have owned this product for 2 years. It is built solid and has several nice features. I like that it is small enough to fit comfortably in a pocket and the antenna is not big. I have used the units on road trips to keep in contact with other vehicles and used it in theme parks. I have used the VOX (voice activated features) to know when my baby woke up (sleeping in a cabin), and I have used the US weather alert reports. I am pleased with the range and clarity. In the city its range is superior to 5 mile talk units which is not suprising as this is a 25 mile unit. This unit has given me fairly reliable reception at about 2 miles in residential areas. I tested it at 26 miles across Salt Lake Valley from one high point in Salt Lake City to another high point at the other end of the valley in Herriman, Utah. The reception was good, so the farthest distance claim is accurate as long as there are no intervening buildings and hills, etc.

These radios performed exactly as I expected when purchasing them. We just took them hunting in very mountainous terrain in Utah and they did great. I read reviews for weeks before purchasing this model, and I'm glad I spent the time on research. My husband and I were able to maintain contact up in the mountains with a couple miles and hills between us. We rarely had line of sight, but the signal was crystal clear. We even got fairly decent reception from the in-laws hunting camp several miles and a couple mountain tops away from us. We did lose contact one time when I was down in a gully and my husband was a couple of ridgelines away from me, but it didn't last long. Overall, I think they performed as well as, if not better than expected. Good radios are hard to find for the type of terrain and distances I'm talking about here.

We'll be investing in Rinos over the next few years, but for now these radios are just fine. I recommend taking some time to get familiar with the instruction manual. I ended up using more of the features than I ever have before on a radio, and really liked them. I even used the VOX feature as a baby monitor so I could hang out in camp with my baby napping in our tent.

Bought these as a Christmas present and after three weeks of light use, noticed that the radios would not recharge. Contacted Amazon who sent a replacement and e-mailed return shipping to me. Got the new ones and plugged them into the charger and these would not charge. "Wiggled" the power cord a little and the charger started working, but this only lasted a couple of days before it crapped out completely. I suspect the chargers cord is made from very cheap and brittle wire. While the radios appear to work well, they are useless if they cannot be charged. Amazon promptly refunded me for this item.
As far as Amazon.com goes: Their customer service has been outstanding. They sent the first replacements and they appeared on my doorstep the very same day I shipped off the defective ones. The refund on the second set came very quickly, too. They have been Johnny-on-the-spot. No questions asked. Thank you Amazon.

Didn't expect this kinda quality for this price...To make things short - it worth every dime u spent.
---On the open water 5 miles in bad weather - 7 miles in perfect. In the car with closed windows about 1.5-3.0 miles on the road. In the city ,like NY - 2 miles behind about 6-7 building. For a toy class radio = its a real rare find .Oh yeah ,and the voice clarity is amazing ,plus VOX working good, but the batteries going down twice faster.
---Remember to charge at list 20 hours right out of the box /don't use batteries before charging 20 hours/ this is the most common mistake people do,coz the life span and capacity of batteries gonna be bad.
---Batteries supplied AAA is only 600mah... witch is not as good as Eneloop Sanyo - 900mah,or Energizer -1200mah, though for the full summer months u be OK, I think ;) Enjoy!
