Model Number: CXT235 Verified Purchase
I purchased this product (Cobra Electronics Walkie-Talkie CXT235 Two-Way Radio) during an Amazon Lightning Deal. Previously I already have a pair of very basic walkie talkies (Motorola FV300 2-Way Radio), but I consider the CXT235 a 'step-up' due to its advertised features, namely:
- Longer range of 'Up to 20 miles'
- 'Privacy Codes'
- Rechargeable batteries and charger included

My initial impression of the CXT235 was quite positive. The control buttons are fairly simple to use. The LCD panel is back-lighted and easy to read. The 'Privacy Code' feature seems to work well. However, there are several marketing hypes and deficiencies that I need to point out:

1. Like all walkie talkies, the advertised range of 'Up to 20 miles' is highly inflated. This number is only possible under optimal test conditions (transmitting from one hilltop to another with clear line-of-sight, perfect weather, no RF interference, etc). In an urban environment with obtrusions and interferences, you're lucky to get up to 2 miles in range.

2. The so-called 'Privacy Code' does NOT prevent others from listening in to your conversation. Instead, it prevents you from receiving unwanted transmission from other people. Let's say your group is using channel 11 with privacy code set to 22. You will not hear any transmission on channel 11 unless it is preceded by the correct privacy code. But anybody listening in to channel 11 without using privacy code can hear everything you transmit.

Absolutely great radios, terrible public understanding of what FRS/GMRS radios are actually designed to do, and all this is compounded by shoddy advertising.

First off, on the radios themselves, they are terrific. Great range, fast charge times, love the drop in charge base, great features, long-lasting chargeable batteries come with them - and some really nice 'add-on' features like helmet-microphones and lapel mics are available for these radios, as well. They only come with the wall charger and drop in base, but you can also buy a car DC plug in charger for them, also.

As for what FRS and GMRS radio is, it is adult 'walkie talkies'. The GMRS (General Mobile Radio System) channels (1-7 and 14-22) are 4-watt high power channels, and are the actual channels that the companies baseline to get their '22-mile', '24-mile', etc. flat-land, unobstructed range values for. The problem is, GMRS is controlled by the FCC, and you have to apply for an operational license to use those channels, or risk a fine. In effect, GMRS is the old CB Radio system gone digital, but where you have to apply for a license to use it - like in the old days.

The FRS (Family Radio System) function in these (and all other similar radios) is only allowed on channels 8-13, and are max-set at 0.5 watt of power. THIS IS BY FCC LAW, so don't go saying 'mine put out more power', because if they do, then you are in FCC violation. Period. FRS does NOT need a license, because they are intentionally range-limited due to very low power levels. Best FRS ranges are 1-3 miles, depending on environment, weather, obstacles, battery power, etc.

I recently used this product with no issue. However, I replaced their low capacity battery with NiMH high capacity.The batteries that comes with it does not last very long. The Hi capacity (850 mAh) worked for about 9 hrs and still going.

We use these to talk around our 17 acre farm and while kayaking, hiking, and hunting, Two miles away and hilly we were still able to talk. Much farther than that was not so good. Line of sight with no obstructions would probably be better. We love them and have two sets so the kids can keep in touch too. Upgrade to better batterys for more talk time. We use 800mAh rechargeables.

Great deal. Works good on the road. Better than cell phones for keeping a couple cars together on the highway.

Pros:

Has rechargeable batteries. My car has a USB port, so I was able to keep the radios charged and didn't have to worry about replacing batteries. All the other radios I looked at were horrible at battery life.

Cons:
It's range is okay. People who complain about radio range don't understand that radios are not cellphones. We don't live in an ideal world where there is never any interference. When you are in range though, the voice is clear.

My 11-year old daughter bought a cheap set of walkie-talkies at Claire's and was very disappointed. So she returned them and saved up her money to buy these. She has had so much fun running around with her friends at our neighborhood park and playing spy games. They have excellent reception and she has enjoyed them very much.
