Advantages Versatile, lightweight, reliable and durable
Disadvantages The units can receive unwanted intereference.
Having won this product in a competition on the local radio, I was a bit sceptical of using them at first as it seemed a bit " Smokey and the Bandit, ish" . CB,s lost their appeal in the early eighties as far as I'm concerned.. However, now I have, I wish I came across them sooner than I did. They have come in handy for me on many occassions so far and I have only had them for a month. I have used them at work whilst in the warehouse , so I can be contacted whilst away from my office, I have given one to my son on occassions so I can keep in touch when he's out with his friends, ( his choice not mine, I didn't want to cramp his style, but he seemed quite happy to be seen with them). I have even used them in the house, whilst talking to my wife upstairs, lol. Now for the technical stuff about them:They have a range of up to 6 kilometres.
The talktime for these products are about two and a half hours before they need charging again.
They last about three days on standby without recharging.
The product comes with a one year manufactures warranty.
The price for these units range from about £55 to up to £80.
Overall, I am very happy with these units, they are very lightweight, durable, extremely easy to use, reliable and multi functional. However, I do have one niggly concern regarding the reception, on a couple of occasions, I have been forced to change channels whilst using them, as I have picked up interference from aircraft approaching a local airport about fifteen miles away from where I live. Although I have never experienced static, like you used to get in earlier models. Although I won them in a competition, I would be quite happy to be pay the asking price for these, if I could justify the use for them.
