Retevis H-777 2 Way Radio Walkie Talkies Rechargeable
  • Tested up to 3 miles in the suburbs and the voice is loud and clear with no static.
  • Decent range too - I'd guess at about 1/2 mile. They were inexpensive and they meet my business needs.
  • These are very functional walkie talkies with great range.
  • These are great sized and have good range. They are used in a bar/restaurant on busy event days.
  • Great sound. Very clear with good range.
BaoFeng BF-888S Walkie Talkie 2pcs in One Box
  • I live in a fairly hilly and wooded area and got an honest 1.25 miles of reliable communication over that terrain.
  • The range is very comparable to the $300 Motorola GMRS Sport radios I bought 20 years ago for ski trips.
  • In more open terrain (beach setting) the range is very good.
  • Radios seem well built and are great for short range communications.
  • They have great range and are easy to use.

What customers say about "Features"
Retevis H-777 2 Way Radio Walkie Talkies Rechargeable
  • These are solid/sturdy pieces of equipment, with a screw-on antenna that can be removed for more rugged travel.
  • The clips seem sturdy and are not cheap plastic that will break.
  • Great product. They worked right out of the box and were easy to program.
  • The sound quality is good and the units appear to be well made.
  • I also love that there is a flashlight built into the radio.
BaoFeng BF-888S Walkie Talkie 2pcs in One Box
  • The belt clip is attached to the metal heatsink on the back of the radio. This makes for a strong attachment and it is a good clip.
  • The belt clip is very sturdy, all metal and made from stamped steel.
  • The waist belt clip sprig was very strong, making attaching it very secure but removing it from the waist belt a bit tricky.
  • They are small, reliable, and they come with chargers!
  • We also use them with the ear pieces for comms between quads and motorcycles at the dunes.
