Why You Need Motorola Walkie Talkies – Two Way Radios
While out trick or treating on Halloween with the kiddos this year, you want to be sure you know where they are at all times. If they are anything like my kids were, they like to run ahead and catch up to the other groups. With that being said, they can easily get lost in the crowd. Your kids will be hard to spot in the Halloween ghost and goblins. But you can easily keep track of them with the Motorola Walkie Talkies – Two Way Radios. They are part of the Motorola T200 Series.
They’re small enough for little hands and easy to operate. With just a push of the button on the side, you can talk to them and they can talk to you even when you can’t see them. They come in a set of two radios, but also available in a set of three, complete with a belt clip and rechargeable batteries. No need to hunt for batteries because you forgot to buy them. (You just need to charge them up ahead of time.)
I was pleasantly surprised that the Motorola Walkie Talkies – Two Way Radios have a range of up to 25 miles. Of course it depends on what is in the way, hills, buildings, etc. But they aren’t only good for the kids. We have bad cell phone reception where we are because we’re kind of in the valley. Even though my Mother-in-Law’s house is just a stone throw away (literally), it’s kind of hard to call her without cell phone reception. The Two Way Radios are perfect for us to have one and her to have one just in case.
Another thing they are great for is when we are backing in our 43 ft. camper in a spot. Perfect for every RV’er. He can’t see me when I’m behind and he doesn’t hear me over the diesel engine. You’ve seen the signs that say “sorry what I said while backing in the camper!” lol These are so much easier.
I saved the best for last. It’s also a weather radio. With 11 channels to choose from, you can get weather alerts in most areas with them.
You can also go hands free if need be. The rechargeable will last up to 12 hours or you can use 2 AA batteries for up to 29 hours. There are also 20 different call tones to choose from so you can call the person on the other end. You can also do a channel scan to see which channels are in use and which ones are not.
These make the perfect holiday gift for everyone on your Christmas list. Not only are they very affordable but they are also fun.
