Comes with everything you need, great price for a pair of 10km pmr radios.

Found slightly cheaper on Amazon however Maplin sell it at £35 and also offer a £5 voucher if spending £40.

Product overview

• Twin pack of two-way PMR 446 radios
• Keep in touch at work or festivals
• Keep in contact up to 10km away
• 968 privacy combinations with 8 PMR channels and 121 privacy codes per channel
• Battery powered radios - includes 8 rechargeable AAA batteries
• No licence required

Where can I use these PMR radios?
If you are going to a festival or camping in the woods, take a look at these radios. The Binatone Action 1100 PMR radios can reach up to 10km in range. Working on the licence free 446MHz range, these units are PMR446 radios. No need for a call plan or licence, the radios are very easy to use. Their backlit LEDs and belt clips to secure the units make this a handy little radio set suitable for many uses.

How far away can I use my two-way radio?
These radios can reach a maximum range of 10km under ideal conditions. The range will be reduced if they are used in built up areas or with obstacles between the two units.

How many channels does my radio have?
With 8 channels and 121 privacy codes per channel, you have 968 privacy combinations to choose from. This means you can be confident of finding a channel that is not being used by others in the area. Use a headset to cut down the background noise or use the voice activated transmission VOX for hands-free communications. The roger bleep after every message prevents you from missing the end of messages, and the keypad lock stops you from accidentally changing frequencies.

How long can I talk with the two-way radios?
On a full charge, you can use these radios for up to 1 hour 30 minutes of talk time or up to 40 hours of standby. When you need to recharge the radios, just place the handsets into the mains powered charging dock and the eight rechargeable AAA batteries (included) will charge in the units. The units have battery indicators on the display and low battery warnings so you’ll have plenty of notice before you need to charge.

Yaaayyyyyyy.....and it's not from gearbest either!!
Good post we have some of these and the range is excellent

Look at that - a deal on HUKD selling legal walkie talkies from a British retailer. Brings me back to the heady pre-gearworst days of 2016

10km range?
Dream on - according to the spec. they're 0.5w power output so you'll be lucky to get 1km under "normal" conditions.
OK, if both sender and receiver are stood on top of mountains with direct line of site in very favourable atmospheric conditions they might work - but it'll never happen in real life.
Misleading advertising, Maplins should be ashamed of themselves.

Sweeeeet. Been waiting for non-Gearbest ones, thanks OP!

These are good radios but for some reason they have removed the hidden channel 9 as found on the previous binatone 950 version, transmission1.net/vie…330

The rechargeable batteries supplied with these are only 600mah, it is well worth swopping them out for batteries of around 1000mah, I replaced mine with ones from Lidl @£4.99 for 8 and are 950mah, on test they gave me just over 60 hours standby time compared to the 35 hours I got from the supplied batteries.

10Km always makes me smile...

'ideal conditions' must be in a vacuum, downhill, with a following wind!! (cue nerdy comment ref vaccum....)

I have several pairs of similar '10km' units - very little chance of getting anything more than about 2Km in typical conditions, even if you have line of site (e.g. one side of a valley to another!). If there are buildings or trees around, effective range comes down to 100-200metres.

Cheaper @ Amazon

They will be a set frequency range so that no licence is required to use them, I think on the other model a licence is required however I am sure that these radios could be reprogrammed to enable the frequency band and additional chanels with a little bit Internet research

Uses licensed frequencies straight out of the box which you're not allowed to use in the UK - need a programmer to change the frequencies. essexham.co.uk/new…tml
