    I read many mixed reviews about these radios and decided to give them a chance. I'm glad I did! I used these on my move from Long Beach, CA to Beaverton, OR and they worked great! Driving a uhaul with a follow car took us about 20 hours to drive. Having the walkie talkies to communicate between the two cars was the best idea ever! Made it a breeze to alert eachother of any hazards and simply to stop for a break every few hours. The rechargeable batteries included lasted 15 hours!! I was really surprised how long the batteries lasted. For the remaining 5 hours we used 3 regular AAA batteries and they continued to work great as well. If you're thinking of buying some walkie talkies to use on a roadtrip, look no further. These are it! They're rechargeable and come with a single USB wire that splits into 2 micro USB wires (kind of like a letter Y) that connect into the radios to charge. You will need either a USB block or port to charge them. I used my cell phone chargers block and they did great. Sound and clarity was great, no complaints at all. Very happy with my purchase. Thank you!

    Probably good for kids - not much else

    I bought these as replacements for use in a warehouse. We needed a replacement for a Midland model that is no longer made. THIS is not a good replacement. The volume is not great for a working environment. The buttons are too easily accidentally pushed while wearing on a belt. The USB charging is an interestingly novel way to recharge, but it means you need to leave your computer on while charging. The batteries that come with the unit lasted only 4-5 hours before running out. I replaced them with Duracell rechargeable batteries, which lasted 8+ hours. Range is adequate for our use and price is good. Of course, they went on sale right after we bought them, so watch for the sale if you want some for your kids to use. Can't recommend them for anyone else, though.

    Absolutely Worthless - Do Not Buy !

    Battery "life" is ridiculously short. To advertise "Battery Saver Circuitry" as a feature is an outright joke. Even with fully charged high quality batteries in place of the cheap ones that come with these units the battery life is only a few hours. The reception is poor at best and the speaker sound quality rivals only that of two tin cans and a string - and that's being kind. The ring tone is absolutely annoying. The screen is so small it's virtually useless. Honestly, a child's toy walkie talkie is better in terms of quality. This product is a complete waste of money. We bought a set made by Uniden for LESS money and we couldn't be happier with them.

    Cobra 2 way radio

    Can't believe how good the reception is!! When my 7 year old granddaughter is staying with me I will go to the basement or take my dog outside to use the bathroom. The whole time my granddaughter and I talk on these. She feels a little more grown up being able to be in the apartment for a short period by herself and I feel comfortable being able to talk to her and making sure she's fine those few minutes. I know this summer we will be using them a lot at parks and nature trails. Also when we go on a car trip. Trying to call the other car isn't safe but with this 2 way radio you just have to push the button and talk to let the other car know we need to stop. I wish we would have bought them sooner!!!

    These 2 way radios performed flawlessly. I utilized these for a move across country- for communicating between a UHaul truck and my daughter following behind me in another vehicle. Clear communications between vehicles the entire trip. Radios come with rechargeable batteries, two chargers, and the allowance to change from rechargeable batteries to AAA batteries, should they be needed. Highly recommend these radios.

    Does the job

    Good value. More immediate, reliable comm than cell phone in our area. Worked well within range of about 100 yards, house to house/yard. Pretty clear reception and speaker/mic. Shortcomings include the batteries provided -- unit never seemed to indicate fully charged though batteries were charged. Can't complain given sale price and solid performance over a few weeks. They did the job.

    Bought these for a two car road trip. We stayed reasonably close together and never experienced a problem with reception. The only problem was the volume level. We had to be careful to hold the radios close and enunciate very clearly to be heard and understood, and we had to use the beeper to get the other person's attention before starting a conversation so they could hold the radio close ... otherwise we couldn't talk.

    These are great walkie-talkies all around. Great range, clarity and options for whatever you might need. The design is very solid, I feel like I could drop these things several times without so much as a cosmetic problem. Only con I would have is that they are really small. If you have big hands, like I do, its like your talking into a little toy phone. However, seeing as these were for my kids, I don't have an issue with their size otherwise.
