I bought these radio's for in the house mainly. I'm disabled and this makes it easy for me to get help without yelling. When I get out to look around the Flea Market we used them and with me on my scooter and my helper on the other side they work great. This is a excellent product and very inexpensive. The Batteries last a long time and with their own charger no more changing batteries.

Expected a better product
Volume is way too low. You almost have to place it next to your ear to hear. BUT, the call alert is VERY loud. Go figure!!! The charger only worked on one side. Had to interchange transceivers in the slots in order to charge the second one. Had a Motorola before, but the batteries were almost as expensive as this unit. Wish I had bought a battery for the Motorola.

Great Radio's

When I get out to look around the Flea Market we used them and with me on my scooter and my helper on the other side they work great. This is a excellent product and very inexpensive.

Great product and great price.

Worked better than I expected. The rechargable battery makes it even better than buying batteries all the time. Would recommend them to anyone.

Work Very Well

I purchased this product for my 7 year old grandson as a birthday gift. I wanted a pair of walkie talkies that work well and last longer than cheaper character radios. I also liked the recharging cradle that comes with the radios. So far so good! My grandson and older granddaughter have lots of fun playing with them. They are loud and clear with being a decent distance apart from one another. Due to the quality of these radios, I've encouraged my daughter to use them for other purposes like when going on vacation, etc. I think they are a wonderful purchase for less than $35.00!!!

Perfect for my wife who has difficulty with hands/fingers and can not use cell phone- allows her to ring me if she needs me!! nothing to open or login one button to push!

Great little radio for what I needed.

We bought these radios because I was always in the yard when I would get a phone call and my wife would have to come out with the portable phone and find me so now she just calls me no the walkies and tells me to come to the phone.

good value

This was a gift for my 6 year old grandson. He was very happy with it. It's easy to use and he'll be using it in and around the house, so range wasn't of great importance.

Two-Way Radios

Our business uses these walkie's everyday and they are great. The short antenna is great compared to other walkie's we've used in the past. Only negative thing we can see is you have to make sure the red light is on and they are charging, or the next day we can't use them.

Works well within a couple of miles on flat ground

These radios work well to keep up with someone who isn't too far away - they are simple to work and easy to hear. The advertisement that there is a "16 mile range" on these hasn't worked for us - a 2 mile radius on flat ground is pushing it as voices become distorted. We are pleased with our purchase, however, because we were only using them for close range.

Worked just fine.

My wife and I use this when towing the RV, so I've only used it once since purchased, but worked very well. The signal is very clear so understanding a transmission is not a problem. I'll never come close to the range advertised, so I can't comment on range.

They work well for the price

As a Ranger for The Dyrt, I get products to test from time to time – on this trip I tested the Midland LXT500VP3 (Up to 24 Mile Two-Way Radios). The radio itself is a good size and sits comfortably in the hand. The antenna sits about 2 inches taller than the unit and is hard plastic. There are removable belt clips for each handheld unit. The top of the belt clips stick out from the back of the unit about half an inch as if they were hinged but they are in fact not hinged and therefor just push into whatever it is clipped to. The main button you use to transmit is textured and made of an easily gripped rubber so it made talking very easy. The LCD screen is not backlit and when turned on displays only the channel being used (until the battery is low then it has a low battery indicator). The handheld units were easy to control with clearly marked buttons on the front.

The set comes with a rechargeable battery for each handheld unit and a desktop charger. The desktop charging unit is small and light with red indicator lights to show when the units are charging. The desktop charger will charge both radios at once or you can use the power cord to charge one unit independently. The radios are supposed to be charged 12 hours for a complete charge. If you will not have access to an AC plug you can purchase the additional cable to allow these to charge via the cigarette lighter in a vehicle.

Channels 8 through 14 are low power channels. We tried these radios in town, on the highway, and in camp using these channels and at best only had a mile of range. However, when we did have enough signal to make contact the voices were very clear and easily heard. We were able to use the low power channels to drive through the campground with a lead car looking for a campsite while the truck/trailer were parked near the entrance to avoid getting stuck somewhere that we could not turnaround. We also used them on the low power channels around camp when going for walks or to the bathrooms.

Channels 1-7 and 15-22 are high power channels. We tried these in town (suburban area, no extremely tall buildings or geographical features… just houses) and easily got another half mile of range above the low power channels (somewhere around a mile and a half total). The voices normally came through very clear unless we were near overhead power lines in which case they had static interference. We also noticed that if I was near the end of the range of the radios and in a car I was able to receive transmissions but unable to send them.

Overall, these radios seem to be pretty tough and easy to use with a decent amount of range. For the price they could be great for kids getting into radios, for use around a larger property/park area, between vehicles in a caravan, or around camp.

1. Sue.....Yes ! Any other brand also -- will communicate w/ Midland two-way radios here. All handsets must be on same FRS or GMRS channel to do so. By law, FCC does require a License to operate on the GMRS channels. Fee is = $90....and covers up to 6 radios for 5 years.

1. NO !!!!
by SirRally
2. yes they are and will working in a vehicle if needed but only up to fie miles
by JEM1898
3. These radios DO NOT transmit on CB band frequencies, so they are not compatible with CB radios. They are small handheld units that can be used in a car to talk with other people using FRS/GMRS frequencies just not people using the traditional CB radio. Hope this helps.

1. Dan. . . .you have 3 Battery options to use really. 1st = Rechargeable Ni-Mh battery packs included w/ radios 2nd = 3....AAA regular Alkaline (non rechargeable) batteries (I don't recommend rechargeable alkaline batteries period) 3rd = 3....AAA Rechargeable Ni-Mh batteries. Charged thru their own seperate Ni-Mh wall charger -- and Not thru desktop charger included here w/ radios. Higher mAh capacity the better, just be sure charger itself matches/provides full max charge to mAh capacity of the batteries.....should you choose to buy ni-mh batteries & a charger seperately of eachother.
by SirRally
2. The battery packs that come with the radios which are replaceable as needed.
