The Talk About T600 H2o Series from Motorola; An Outdoors Dad will Love Them

We received a sample in exchange for a honest an unbiased review.

My sons love camping, kayaking, hiking, biking, canoeing and many other outdoor activities as a few or as a group. Whenever they are planning on being out in the woods, in a river or on the lake their number one priority is the safety of everyone. That is why we think it is such a great idea to bring along the Motorola Talkabout T600 H20.

The Motorola Talkabout T600 Series is a set of waterproof radios that will keep you connected whether you are on land or out on the water. With its IP67 standard the T600 H2O Series withstands constant submersion of up to 1m for 30 minutes and will repel the heaviest rain. Through meticulous engineering, the radio will float and is visible on the surface of the water. With the water activated flashlight its even easier to find.

The Motorola Talkabout T600 radios will help you be prepared for emergencies. The radio has an emergency alert feature. When you activate the alert button the radio transmits an alert signal to other radios and warns of impeding danger. You can also use the whistle belt clip to let others know that you are in need of help. There is a built in LED flashlight that can be used for evening adventures, unexpected emergencies and when the power goes out.

One of the awesome features of these Motorola Talkabout T600's is you can keep yourself up to date with real time weather conditions. There are 11 weather channels or weather alerts can be initiated. The NOAA radio service backs the weather alert channels.

Using the Motorola Talkabout T600 isn't hard to figure out. The White LED setting on the built in flashlight can be used for the simple evening adventures or power outages. If your hunting at night, or stargazing or viewing maps just switch to the red LED setting. This setting will allow you to read what you need to while preserving the night vision.

There are two ways to power the radios, use the the included NiMH rechargeable batteries for up to 9 hours or you can use three AA batteries for up to 23 hours. In order to recharge the NiMH batteries you can choose one of three ways. Connect it to your vehicle adapter or your computer. You can also plug the Y cable charging adaptor into an outlet. This cable features the dual micro USB connectors so that two radios can be charged at once. Hours of uninterrupted outdoor activities can be enjoyed by selecting a high capacity battery.

With the iVOX/VOX acting like a speakerphone and allowing hands free communication your able to keep on moving without stopping to answer a call. You can also use the VibraCall feature where ringing can be intrusive. There are 22 channels and 121 privacy codes, totaling 2,662 combinations, its very easy to find an available channel. There are 20 call tones. Instead of people hearing a normal default ring tone, choose one of the 20 call tones, you will be able to grab the attention of family and friends before you even start speaking. The push-To-Talk power boost allows you to extend the transmission range by increasing the transmitter power output. This also saves battery life when no power boost is necessary. You can also communicate with other FRS/GMRS radios regardless of brand by being on the same channel and privacy code.

Another of the great things about these radios is they are eco smart. Most of the energy is wasted when using a mobile device occurs during the charge. This Motorola Talkabout T600 consumes less power during its idle condition. Its easy to use the scanning feature to find out which channels are currently being used. The radios have an alert that will remind you when the battery is low. And, yet another, cool thing is personalized settings can go undisturbed with a keypad lock.

We intend to be using these often this summer and Fall. These can add piece of mind to out door activities. They work great, communicate a good distance and are quality made.
