Motorola is honest enough to prominently display on the package that in urban areas, the 16 mile rating translates into a 1 mile working range. However at this distance, with many buildings only 2 storeys high, and on a channel that transmits full power, I can hear the other set transmit but not well enough to understand what is being said.
I actually bought them for my son. My experience with kid versions of electronics is that they cost almost as much, are not as well made, and end up in the land fill very shortly after. However, the electro magnetic radiation warning in the instructions did give me pause. We've ended up using them on channels that work at half power. My kid loves using them. The only down side is that his fingers get tired pressing the 'Push To Talk' button after a while.
i'm pleasantly surprised that this entry level offering is not a stripped down product. I've dropped one radio on a wooden floor already, and it survived without a scratch. The battery cover didn't even come off. I highly recommend them to any casual user.
Great, I strongly recccomend these for communication over ares between 5 ft, and 16 miles!!!! Though like all walkie talkies if they are too close together they make a high pitches buzzing sound(0-4ft)
An added "bonus" in the screwed up world in which we live, is that if there is some sort of man made or natural disaster, these will offer an added method of communication. Hate to think about that, but it's true.
Ease of use
Good, loud, clear speaker
Good battery life
Peace of mind
Nice feature set.
Transmit button is awkward to use
Belt clip is weak plastic
Advertised range is unrealistic, though they do note that it will be about a mile in an urban area.
Takes a long time to charge.
No included wrist strap, though I think there is a place for one.
Volume button is too easy to move accidentally. Detents would make it much more functional.
Overall, for $40, I'd say these were a pretty good purchase. Will try them again on an upcoming camping trip at the beach and see how far apart we can get straight down the beach.

Nice radios, the range doesn't reach as far as stated in most conditions. We use them on a trip to communicate back and forth.Published on August 18, 2014 by Danny Hartsell
