I bought these Cobra 2-way radios for my hubby one year for Christmas. He wanted something he could take with him hunting that has a good range and was not too big. These seemed like they would be perfect, but they did not end up measuring up to what they claimed to be.
These radios come with a charging stand. This is great because you don't have to worry about separate charging cords. It provides a great, safe way to store them too. The overall look of these radios are very nice. From the base to the radios themselves, it has a very smooth, curvy look. They fit your hand very nicely and are very light weight.
These radios are VERY durable! They have taken a lot of abuse in the years that we have had them. They take the droppings, bangings, and weather conditions very well. My hubby's friend even dropped one in a shallow creek once! He had to climb down the tree he was in before he could fish it out. Even after being in the water for about 2 minutes it worked like nothing had happened.
Where this product is disappointing is in the range. It says you can get clear reception up to 5 miles. You can get no where near that far! I would say, for clear enough reception to understand what the other person is saying, you have to be within about 1 and a half miles. After that the static is too bad to hear or you just can't talk at all. The "call" button that sends a noise to the other radio will work about 3-4 miles away, but what good does that do if you can't talk.
