This walkie talkie comes with auto squelch which will help clear out background noise, which will come in handy if you are some place with a lot of people, such as an amusement park. Because these walkie talkies come with an automatic channel scan, voice clarity will be even better. These devices also come with different call tones to choose from. This will help you to be able to pick out the sound of an incoming call in a crowd of people. To ensure that you have heard all of what your other party was saying to you, this handie talkie also comes equipped with a "roger beep." This tone will sound once there has been a silence longer than three seconds.

While these walkie talkies don't offer a battery meter that continually shows the amount of batter power left, there is a low batter indicator. Once the battery power has run down, the unit will alert you that it's time to plug it in to be recharged or time to switch out the battery pack for three AAA batteries. This device includes a rechargeable battery pack and wall charger.

One of the great things about this walkie talkie is that it is water resistant. That means that it's the perfect walkie talkie to have with you while you are enjoying the water rides at your favorite amusement park. They are also great for outings to the lake or while you are relaxing by the pool.
