I used the first set 1 time before they stopped working. TriSquare replaced them and I used the second set twice before they stopped working. Worst radios I've every owned.
The Radios themselves are great - they work, no Interferences, Audio Good, 10B Channels with lots of Privacy, Reception has been quite good. Set Up can be a bit detailed due to the many capabilities in their design. Owners Manual looses a little in English Translation as do so many other products not made in U.S.A.. The really bad news however, is the NiMh Rechargeable Battery Docking Station. The design is such that the Radios fit in their designated holder slots very loosely, and make poor electrical contact. The LED indicator lights flicker due to the poor connectivity of the electrical contacts. They charge via two metal contact points on the Back Cover of the radios, then it is transferred from the Cover, to the actual battery itself - the Covers do not fit real tight, and the Radios fit poorly in their charging holders - hence double trouble. The NiMh Batteries are of poor quality, many reports of brand new Batteries NOT working after 1hr., or just not holding a charge are true. The good news - Trisquares Service Dept. is cooperative, and has been Replacing Batteries for new or recently purchased customers Radios. I have suggested that they immediately contact the manufacturer (Hong Kong China) and have the Docking Station redesigned, and procure quality NiMh Batteries - or charge a little extra and start using Li-Ion Batteries. You can also power the Radios by using 3 AA Batteries in each. The Radios themselves and their working concepts do make them worth buying.
This product is superior to the garden variety radios.
I have been completely disappointed in these walkie talkies - they do not fit in chargers - you have to continually play with them to get them lined up with charger - two of them already will not charge at all - they get very very hot.Returned one - new one does the same thing. [...]
I tested the two radios upon receipt (after charging). The fully charged battery only lasted about an hour. Half of the radio transmissions never reached the other unit, the units were 1 room away with a closed door (residential setting). The following day, I found the battery charger would not charge the batteries.
I hunt elk and black tail deer in Washington State. I bought these radios for me and my son to use this fall. They are a complete disappointment. My son and I could not communicate with these Trisquare radios even 50 yards apart. We also cannot talk with the rest of our hunting party since they carry Rino 530's. Since I opened the package I cannot return them. The wife is still giving me guff over two months later about wasting $100. I gave them to the kids to play with around the house.
Great little radios. The range is fair, at least equal to FRS radios and there is NO Interference from other radios. They are light weight and have a reasonable battery life. Work great rig to rig when four wheeling and on the road.
