The Motorola T82 Extreme walkie-talkies, are new to the range this summer 2017. The new model improves upon the successful T80 walkie-talkie, which has been one of our top sellers in the two-way radios category. It is a great accompaniment for any adventure, with a durable design, and high technical specifications. So, what do we think are the best features of the Motorola T82 Extreme? Have a look below to find out!
Motorola T82 Extreme: What do we think?
The T82 has a simple and smart style, with a two-tone black and orange body, and hidden screen display. All buttons are easily accessible, which is great for when you are using the radio on the move, or while enjoying extreme sports. The display is clear and only illuminates when you need it to, showing call information, and saving battery life. If you are nearly out of battery, you will know straight away thanks to an indicator built into the front of the handset. It’s design also means that it is resistant to water and knocks, with an IPX4 rating. This is an extremely useful design feature, especially if you are planning to use your walkie-talkie while skiing, hiking or undertaking extreme activities.
So, we know that the T82 has a simple and sleek design, but what exciting features are built in? We think that one of the most useful features of the T82 is the flashlight which is built into the top of the radio. You never have to worry about being without light when you go hiking, biking or skiing, which can keep you safe in difficult situations. The T82 Extreme also boasts dual power USB charging. This means that you won’t have to sit around twiddling your thumbs while you wait for your radio to reach full charge. You can enjoy super fast charging, which lets you get back to what you love doing in less time.
You also don’t need to worry about spending lots of time trying to pair your radios. The T82 Extreme has press and hold easy pairing, which makes the whole process extremely quick and glitch free. Just press, hold, and you’re connected. Simple!
The T82 is technically a very strong choice of two-way radio. It has up to 10km range when in optimum conditions e.g. hilltop to hilltop in good weather conditions. This range allows you to communicate with your team, even if you get split up. The radio is in the PM446 category, which means that it is a part of the UHF radio frequency range that is open without licensing for business and personal use. You don’t need to worry about obtaining a license, which saves both time and money.
If you are going to be using your walkie-talkies on the go without access to a charging point, the T82 is a great choice. It boasts up to 18 hours battery life, so you can rest assured that you won’t run out of battery when you need it the most! Finally, the T82 has 16 channels as well as 121 privacy codes, which helps to keep your conversations secure.
