Nice Walkies! – Bellsouth 22-Channel FRS Walkie Talkie (2-Pack) Reviews

posted by Matungui on 06/02/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
- Easy to use. Just as 1, 2, 3
- Construction appears to be solid... and i dont want to probe it :)
- Volume. Very loud. You can hear it even if you're in the street
- The led light. Isn't shiny, but you can get a fast look on anything and you don't need to turn the unit on to get the light working
- Small size, fits in any pocket
- Headphones - hands free option
Cons:
- Too much batteries. 4 AAA's is a lot of them!
- The range isn't 5 km. Roughly it will be useful in a city, can't pass the concrete
- The belt clip seems to be very weak
- If you dont speak crearly, the receiver can get confused of what you said. You hear like if the other person talks with a potato into the mouth
Other:
- Use rechargeable batteries, or you will make a lot of toxic garbage
- Be nice with it. I dont think that it can survive big hits. The buttons seems to be dancing in their site
- In the field it can be useful. I'll use it to communicate with my partners while i'm doing biological research
- Will it be useful as battery charger??
Bottomline:
- If you want a simple way of short distance communicaton for fun or maybe for job, this can be very good for you!!
- Buy this too and you wont worry about power
