Nice product, seems solid, not expensive!!! – Bellsouth 22-Channel FRS Walkie Talkie (2-Pack) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
The radio transmitter seems to be a quite nice product. The price is reazonable, the distance it works is high: five kilometers but of course it there are many buildings or obstacles, the working distance reduces very much. But this is normal.
The clip for hanging it on the belt semms strong enough, and also may be removed if necessary.
The radio automatically swich on low consumption mode after four seconds, and while is in this state keeps receiving.
Cons:
I think that would be very usefull if deal extreme would sell also the charger for the bacteries, that is a foreseen optional that is not on sell by deal extreme.
Other:
It is very easy to use and also small children will soon learn to use all the simple and easy functions of the item.
The small light is a good optional; it is strong enough for a basic use and for communications in the dark between the two radio trasmitter.
The tone for call may be changed between five different rings (but they are not melodic nor poliphonic!!)
Seems quite strong and solid, and light for carryng.
Bottomline:
I think that is a very good object for its price. Of course is not for professional use, but is a wonderful toy for children, and may be of some utility also for adults!
