I was looking for an affordable yet long range walkie talkie for driving/camping and this fit the bill perfectly. It doesn't have annoying rechargeable custom batteries, so you could carry as many batteries as possible to prevent it from running out of charge.
And, it doesn't run out of charge that frequently either. We used it for about 4 days, and we were communicating pretty frequently. We didn't have the vox on, and switched to the low range whenever possible. But even then after 4 days the battery meter didn't even show a single bar drop.
In case you are driving 2 cars and want to communicate, switch to the GMRS exclusive channels. When on foot, switch back to the FRS channels. You'll save a lot of battery that way too.
The second test was driving in the mountains with me and my wife in our vehicle, my friend and his wife in the other. We each had one of the cobra cx312 radios. I was very pleased with their performance. Understand, that in reality no radio is going to go much further then maybe a mile or two when there are dense trees, buildings, hills, or anything in the way. The only way that you would possibly get 23 miles is if you were on completely flat ground and there was absolutely nothing in between you and the other person with the other radio, and I mean nothing! No trees, bushes, telephone poles, wires, etc. even then I'm very skeptical. What pleases me about these two radios is that even when there was a lot of different things between me and the other radio I was able to communicate effectively when I needed to with the other party that had the other radio.
Pros: decent battery life, decent signal strength,very pleased with performance, and if I needed to Purchase two more radios again I would purchase these again.
Cons: really don't go 23 miles, but a solid mile, perhaps 2, which is the best performance I've had yet with similar radios.
We had to couples on the trip and each couple had a radio. We never had a issue with them reaching anywhere on the boat.
We did have one issue of them not working when one couple was off the boat shopping in Mexico about 2 miles from the boat, at this point we could hear each other but very fuzzy.. Overall perfect and very good on battery life... Its a must for trip with no cell phone capabilities.
One last comment. These radios do have the ability to pick up weather broadcasts but using that stubby little antenna, the reception is pretty bad. They have an alert feature but no S.A.M.E. so be prepared to hear every watch and warning that goes out.
EDIT: I retract my recommendation on the grounds that the range for these radios compared to our older cheap units is absolutely deplorable. We've found that neither radio will open the squelch on the other one from much over a thousand feet in the open. They will not work even half way through the local Walmart while the older radios could easily reach home nearly half a mile away from the center of the same Walmart. These radios have wonderful sound quality but the range is on par with a $10 kid's toy.
