Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by No too bad for the price... We buy some of this radios for the hotel where I work, the radios cover the 3 floors and parking area with no problems, I even can go a couple of blocks away and still be able to talk, the only issue it's that the radios keep turning off if they get shock when I bump on a piece of furniture or a ladder and my manager think that I just don't want to answer the radio!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Product, Good Service Any one who has owned an FRS Radio, or it's successor knows they do not achieve the advertised range. Other than that, they preform as advertise. We have owned motorolaFRS Radios for many years. They have served well and each product has been better than the previous. I did not understand they used the equivilant of AAA equivilant rechargable, because we often substitute Alkaline disposables because the radios are often used away from readily available electicity, ie we carry them and use them from our car or motorhome. These rechargables do last longer than the previous editons. The range is a realistic 1 to 2 miles==enough for our needs. We do appreciate the Weather Band==it works well. May 8, 2013
