Customer Comments

This product was a replacement for an old set that no longer worked, they are for use by the Members of the Exmouth branch of the National Coast Watch, and are an invaluable piece of equipment, and are ideal for use along the Sea line for communication between the Watch Tower and Officers on foot.

I bought these as a birthday present for my little lad. We try to camp at weekends whenever we can and thought these would be good for keeping in touch on site and for him playing soldiers with his mates so wasn't too bothered about the quality. However, on our first trip I ended up having to take a detour back from the local village while the rest of the party went back to the camp site, an ideal chance to test this alleged 3km range......

...2 miles line of sight (a few trees and the odd ramshackle barn in the way) no problem at all, more than happy and actually very impressed for the money.

Battery life good as they incorporate a power save feature although a lot of use limits this (still probably better than most smart phones).
Another good feature is the call button which causes the other unit to ring, great for grabbing the kids' attention when you need to.

All-in-all this is a great product for people like us who want to keep in touch within a relatively short distance and brilliant for the kids as a "serious" bit of army gear :)

Going to buy another set so we can have 4-way comms or 2 sets of 2-way (or 1 set of 3-way and I'll nip off to the pub ;)

Bought for my grand-kids, does what it says on the tin, easy to use even for a six year old, good range, even in built up areas. A good buy for the price & would purchase again.
