There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I only decided to write a review now because I noticed significant static over the air on a recent drive. I used these to easily communicate between cars on our way down to Coachella. In an area less than several blocks (with no large buildings or trees) I noticed the signal began to significantly drop between cars. I'm talking a distance less than half a mile in relatively open sky (Highway 5). I can only attribute this to some other interference, but it was enough for me to raise concern, especially if you claim to have a range 20xtimes longer than we were trying to communicate. Call it a fluke, but for as much usage.
Also the battery kept dying on me most recently. It would show the battery was drained. When I got home an prior to putting it on the charge, i turned them on to show 2 bars 66% left. Used them for several minutes without issues. I'll watch the rechargeable battery pack but this also raised concern. I'll attribute this to heat at the time of use, but cannot say definitively.
A little over one month later and the units stopped working. Both power on and are on the same channel, yet cannot communicate. Past return/replace deadline. Very unhappy these broke so soon and even more dissatisfied that I can't return/replace.
My son is 7 and plays around our neighborhood with his friends. We're not ready to get him a cell phone for a few more years, so the walkie talkie seemed like a viable substitute. 23 mile range is a stretch; perhaps in area without any obstructions or changes in elevation, like a desert, but not in a suburb. We did test the range however and it suits our needs. We were able to communicate clearly from 1 away when my wife and I did our tests. 2 miles we incurred a lot of static, but this is subjective for each users environment. So again, for our purposes and where we live, it does the trick.
Battery life is great so far and audio quality is clear and crisp.
Happy with the purchase thus far.

Los probé en un área con casas obstruyendo y dificilmente alcancé 1 kilómetro. (1/23) demasiado poco.
En espacios abiertos su alcance es mayor. El plástico no es resistente, el pasador del radio se atoró en mi cinturón y rompió.
La batería no es de larga duración. Si los piensas usar como juguetes está bien, pero para comunicarte un poco más lejos no lo recomiendo.
