Affordable communications for the active family. With a range of up to 20 miles and the freedom to communicate wirelessly, the Talkabout T200 lets you stay in touch, whether you’re using it on the playground, in the neighborhood, during a camping trip or shopping around town. Thanks to its featherweight, compact design, the T200 is comfortable to use. With 22 channels and 121 privacy codes, it’s easy to stay in touch while you are out and about. The T200 is available in a twin pack or a triple pack. How far can I expect my radios to communicate? The communication range quoted is calculated based on an unobstructed line of sight test under optimum conditions. Actual range will vary depending on terrain and conditions, and is often less than the maximum possible. Your actual range will be limited by several factors including, but not limited to: terrain, weather conditions, electromagnetic interference and obstructions.
I needed a simple set of radios to use on an 800 mile trip to college with two vehicles needing to stay in contact. Thought this would be easier and safer than dealing with texting via phone or using an app on the phone that still relies on tower service. I was correct in how easy and safe these were to use.
The range was a little over a 1/4 mile between the cars, if we were more than that it was either no reception or very broken up reception. I had expected on a straight road for it to be a little more, but it was adequate. Once we knew this range, we made sure to stay within it and it worked well.
I loved how easy it was to grab the radio and communicate with the other car. No getting my phone woke up, no looking at the phone while driving....just grab and key the mic and talk. This worked well as I was in a car alone. We were able to quickly alert about lane changes due to traffic issues, up coming exits etc. It was so easy and safe!
The battery life was very good. We used it for the duration of 12 hours on the road with no charge and it still was showing one bar. We didn't play around on the radio, only used it for what we needed. So it you have your kid playing on it, it wouldn't last that long. Once the battery life was down to one bar, it did seem to be a little more static in the transmission. I felt the battery life was very good and loved the feature that I could plug it into the phone charger in my car if need be since it uses the same one.
I chose a FRS frequency and sub frequency and never had the need to change. I never heard anyone else on this channel. As long as we were within a 1/4 mile or so, the voice was extremely clear. We were traveling on interstate highway for the entire trip through several large cities and still never heard anyone else.
As far as durability, I did drop it once on concrete and it doesn't even look like it was dropped. No marks or anything and it works perfectly.
I am very happy with this purchase, and since I got them on sale, I feel they were more than worth what I paid. We can use it for other uses, but just on my journeys to college and back, they are worth the price.
Must Have Features for Me: 1. Small & Compact Size 2. Phone style charge ability in my car 3. FRS frequencies 4. Rechargeable batteries but can put regular batteries in if needed 5. Decent Range (with my realistic expectations)
Replacing the pack with rechargable AA batteries will more than double the battery life, but you lose the ability to recharge via the micro USB port. Luckily this is easy to fix: all you need is foil and scotch tape, and 3 NiMH rechargable AA's.
1. Remove supplied battery pack from compartment and set aside.
2. Tear and fold foil into two small bars approx. 3/8" x 1" that will bridge (cover) two of the contacts in the battery compartment. It helps if it's a few layers thick for durability, but it has to still be thin enough for a AA battery to squeeze into the compartment.
3. Cover the back of each foil 'bar' with tape (insulator), then hold one bar in the lower left while inserting a AA battery. The battery contacts should press against the exposed foil, while the insulator on the opposite side touches the radio contacts.
4. Place the second (middle battery) against the exposed probably of the lower foil bar, then hold the second foil piece against the upper end of that battery as you seat it into position. This should leave the second foil bar in the upper right position with the foil side exposed to the batteries.
5. Insert the final battery against the upper foil and test the radio. If it powers on and indicates that it is charging when plugged into a micro USB port, then you have succeeded!
This was my largest concern. Seeing that this appeared to be an issue with virtually all Walkies in this price-range, I chose the Motorola option because of its dual power capabilities (ie: NiMh or store-bought AA).
For my purpose the NiMh batteries last long enough; with minimal usage. We're getting about 1.5 to 2 days before we hear the low-battery "chirp" on any of the three. However we only communicate with each other about 4-8 times a day.
-I set them on a .5w channel, which may place less demand on the battery (as opposed to 1w and 2w channels).
-I gave the batteries a good 8-10hr charge before first use (they were already charged about 2/3rds of the way out of the box).
-I find the voice quality on par with that of a standard landline telephone's speakerphone, however, we're only separated by a single floor. I imagine voice quality will suffer over longer distances; as is expected.
-No stutters, break-ups or voice distortion at all.
LOOK & FEEL:
-They feel solid, with grippy rubber coating where needed to maintain a relatively non-slip grip. Rubber coating on the edges and antenna for minor protection when dropped. Water resistant
-Light, with the NIMh battery. I didn't test with 3x AA batteries.
-Looks professional, and not like a toy or baby monitor like some do.
EASE OF USE:
-Couldn't have been easier to setup. Power on, select channel, select privacy channel. Hit lock. Done. Some of the other Walkies I perused looked a little intimidating and more complicated than they need to be. They would have been very off-putting for those in my care.
-Very simple interface. The buttons are intuitive.
-The Y-charging cable (a dual port charging cable to charge two walkies simultaneously) seems to stop short of fully charging the two walkies connected to it. The battery meter on both only display 2 of 3 bars charged after nearly a day on charger. Charging one at a time solves this. (I have many micro-USB chargers so this wasn't a deal-breaker for me)
-Vibrate when receiving a transmission. I often wear headphones, and may not hear the walkie.
-A better belt clip#!%$!#!!! Maybe a swivel holster, so that you don't spend more time trying to wrap the difficult belt clip around your belt than actually using the Walkie. At least give us a lanyard.
-An option in the menu to see the timestamp of the last received transmission (in case you missed it because you were wearing headphones :)
-I wish you could buy a smaller antenna for it.
