Fine for general use
on 15 March 2012
These radios are fine for general use such as hiking and holidays but I would question their longer term survival.
They are very small and light which is ideal for carrying round, but feel rather too cheap and plasticy (but hey, they are cheap!)
No bells or whistles and a VERY basic manual, but you get what you pay for.
My biggest issue is the use of non-standard 2.5mm stereo sockets for the earpiece/mic/charger rather than industry standard 3.5mm mono earpiece connectors. This means you have to use Cobra's own earpieces or some form of adaptor if you want private listening.
