Very nice product, the flashlight is a good addition too! The batterie lasts longer than I expected.
The Motorola EM1000R Two-Way Radio is a "must have" item in order to stay in touch with one another. I use my Two-Way Radio to communicate with my spouse whenever I am either outside or in another room in my home. The Motorola EM1000R always keeps us in touch with each other. I will taking my Two-Way Radios on vacation with me in the event that we get separated from one another. This device is also excellent when you need to communicate in separate vehicles when you no longer have a signal available for your cell phone. I highly recommend this item to anyone.
These two-way radios worked better than expected on our recent cruise. We were able to communicate with our daughter and another family who brought radios. We did not encounter any areas on the ship where we were not able to communicate.
Pros: This is a great value for the price. We use it around our 7 acre service dog training facility, especially around the main campus bldg as an intercom. The "emergency" button is a great idea that our trainers may use if a dog gets away from them or they are involved in an emergency that takes both hands and all their focus. The "knob" on/off switch works much better than buttons with so many people of different radio knowledge using them. We simply put in the settings we want and lock it. It's nearly fool-proof...not "darn fool" proof though. Neg: The supplied belt clip isn't very useful. We have replaced it with a "zip tie" and small carribeaner clip to give it endless variations ond configuartions for keeping it with you.
The range is a BIG dissapointment. Even with the basic terrain we have around here (trees , houses), it comes nowhere near reaching even 2 miles, much less 20.
Over all, for the price it's a great unit.
These radios work well for camping and fishing! Easy to hear and talk on. Belt clips are a bit stiff, but great otherwise! Nice to have the light on them too.
The two way radio set does not even come close to the distance it says it can. 20 miles! What a joke. Maybe the radio went 2 miles out but around 1 mile we could only hear the other persons voice but was not able to make out what they were saying. VERY dissapointed, could not use product the entire trip.
I bought these two-way walkie talkies for my 6 yr. old son for X-Mas. He absolutely loves them. They have a lot of cool features that intrigue the youngsters; the end light, different ring tones, iVOX. Battery life is excellent. Having a rechargeable battery mount and not needing to purchase batteries is super cost effective. I am excited to try them out on our next trip to one of the major theme parks. This is a very useful product my family will get tons of use out of.
I work in a warehouse that is pretty big, one of the biggest in the north eastern united states. Our building is a half mile long outside corner to outside corner! Over 1.5 million sq feet! We have a couple of these radios floating around in our building for work related usage. (you try tracking somebody down in a building that size with no P.A. system). They work great. They are durable and the rechargable battery packs work for our 10 hour shifts (if charged and cycled properly). The flashlight is an awesome addition if we have to check out trailers out in the yard for paperwork and what not. NOTE: The lights will drain the batteries quick. I am planning on buying a couple of sets for personal usage for me and my kids to use when they roam the neighborhood on their bikes with their little friends and "forget" to charge their cell phones and when we go to the campsite that gets no cell reception.
All in all good product, no complaints.
You failed to mention on your description that this radio requires FCC licensing at a cost of $85.00 for 5 years. I think people should be made aware of this in the future.
this product said the range of 20 miles and my kid rode 2 mile away and could not here him.will return soon
I have not opened the package to charge them yet, but they seem to be nice and Motorola produces efficient functional products. So, I am hoping for the best. I did not want to disturb the air tight packaging on the item, but I will have to try them soon.
I bought this for our camping trip over memorial day weekend and it was a big hit with the family. Never had a 2-way radio before that had a flashlight built in and it came in handy during our nightly outings to the 'nature restrooms".
These radios have excellent reception, sound, clarity and range of distance. They are everything I hoped they would be.
The radios worked well for our weekend event. However, the 31 hour battery life was very much overstated. Only lasted 7 hours in the unit that was most used. But, very helpful for coordinating our event.
Had an older pair, one went bad..not worth expence to fix. Now have three(3) working on same bandwith. The 2 new units look very similar to old one. We take alot of cruises, need commun. aboard ship and shore trex's. The old ones worked well and when I read a review of the new ones working "all" over the ship...good. The new ones cost around $47. and use bigger batteries...good! When we are not traveling use in shopping malls. Well satisfied, don't need a cadillac when a chevy will do ! ordered on line, no shipp. cst to the str, they e-mailed me when ready. TB
I use this radio at work on construction sites..It work prety good, very good range and the weather radio is a bonus here in the midwest.
I bought this product for my child who is 12. Whenever he goes out to play or to the supermarket he uses this walkie talkie and i get clear sound of his wear abouts. We don't have a cell phone.
I am very happy with the price and the delivery. I rate it a 5.
We use these on our boat, for instance during docking and anchoring. they work great for that and the price is right.
Product works as a two-way radio should at its 1.5 watt output. You get 1 to 2 miles between them outside, open terrain as a typical UHF radio on GMRS simplex channels do. Great for shopping malls, camping, traveling on the road within a mile radius of one another. Also great to use in survival kit or if involved in a Community Emergency Response Team. I use many different two-way radios and this radio works well. Disregard the 20 mile advertizement, if you are on a moutaintop and are in line of site of the other radio you can talk that far, but not if you are both at the same grade level.
Very easy to use, holds charge for ample time. Bought them so my kids could be outside and out on the farm but I coud keep tabs on them. My four year old figured out how to use them in about thirty seconds (he's not out on the farm by himself though :) ). Very clear transmission, and though we haven't tested any great distances yet, had absolutely no static at about half a mile.
