So far it held up well. Kids dropped them on to the wooden floor and carpeted area, and that didn't break the unit. Easy enough for 5-year-old to use them after a little demo, and small enough for their little hands.
We once heard some electricians on the same radio wave (on channel 1) when we first turned them on, but that was the only time we had heard any other radio channel users. We just changed to channel 3 and never needed to change again so far. What kids talking each other isn't very private matter, so we actually don't care what other people might hear on the same channel.
This unit doesn't come with a charging cradle but only with plug-in power adopter. We didn't like to own another cradle type thing sitting on the counter space, so we preferred having only power cord/adopter. However that could be a minus for some other folks. We also found out these use the included NiMH rechargeable battery pack as well as 3 AA rechargeable or Alkaline batteries. We use Sanyo Eneloop batteries around the house for everything, so when we need to replace the original battery pack, we could use our rechargeable batteries.
Paying bout $37 for kids' use, I think it's worth it for that money comparing to some other toy-company-made walkie talkies.
I docked this radio a star because of Motorola's overstatement of the potential range of these radios, and for what they did to be able to claim that sort of range. (Everybody does it, but that doesn't make it right.) That being said, these radios are relatively sturdy and contain a lot of features for the money.
This radio does not have a 20 mile range
As the fine print on the package says, 20 miles is the theoretical maximum range that you can get if you are on the top of a treeless mountain in the middle of the desert with perfectly dry, clean air, and with no sunspot activity, and the person on the other end is on the top of a similar mountain. In the real world, where you have trees, insects, rain, electromagnetic interference, etc., your range will be considerably less than 20 miles. And by design, handheld radios with integrated antennas (such as this one) will not have more than a few miles of range except under the most ideal conditions.
You probably don't need/want a radio that has a 20 mile range
Believe it or not, it's a good thing that radios such as this don't have a 20 mile range. Think about it: if any kid with $40 could get a set of radios that could blanket 1200 square miles with whatever came into their heads, these radios would quickly become unusable, even if you used the interference eliminator feature. For most purposes, the 12 square miles that you can access with these radios is quite sufficient.
You probably shouldn't be using this radio if it had a 20 mile range anyway
To get even to the theoretical maximum range for these radios, you must use the General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS) channels, and the legal use of GMRS channels requires a license from the FCC ($90/family). The GMRS channels on this radio include channels 1 through 7 and channels 15 through 22: this radio uses slightly over 0.8 watts to transmit on these channels, which allows Motorola to make the claim that you can hit 20 miles under perfect conditions. Channels 8 through 14 are reserved for Family Radio Service (FRS) use: This radio uses 0.44 watts to transmit on FRS-only channels, which is under the 0.5 watt maximum that is specified by law for these channels. For these reasons, it is best to use the FRS-only channels 8 through 14 if they work for your purposes: you will be running fully legal, and you will extend your battery life slightly by transmitting with less power.
Features are the key to this radio
All that being said, for a relatively mature product area such as this, the main things to look for are affordability and features. This is a very affordable set of radios that contain plenty of useful features:
* Rechargable batteries and battery charger included (batteries are charged without removing the batteries from the unit, which is very convenient)
* Built-in NOAA weather radio with weather alert
* Talk confirmation tone (a "chirp" that the radio adds to the end of each transmission to indicate that the speaker has finished, which is more useful than you might think at first)
* Scanning function (which allows you to monitor all of the channels for transmissions, in case somebody in your party decided to change channels without letting you know)
In sum, these radios deliver a lot of value for the money and should work well for communicating between vehicles on the road or for communicating within a park or a mall.
