Great radio that works perfectly – B-828 Rechargeable 3W 400-470MHz 16-Channel Walkie Talkies with LED Flashlight Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- The radio is very simple to use
-It can be reprogrammed
- It has good reception and transmission even in rough terrain (I use mine for airsoft games)
- Very good battery life
- external microphones can be attached
Cons:
The charging cable comes with an american plug, and in order to change the plug I had to solder in an new cable since the original has really thin wires so it's almost impossible to change just the plug
The standard frequency settings are not PMR, so I had to buy a programming cable at DX, download some software (called BF-480) and reprogram the device.
Other:
This is a really good radio and it does exactly what it's supposed to do
Bottomline:
A really good radio for this price, it does exactly what it is supposed.
