Go Anywhere with the Motorola T600 Talkabout Waterproof Radio
For some reason, I have always loved walkie-talkies. Since I was kid and we had a set then, I have always had walkie-talkies in my house. Until last year when my kids tried to play with them in the lake near our house. One time and they were dead.
We were recently sent the Motorola T600 Talkabout Waterproof Radio to test out in our family and we took them to the late the moment that they arrived.

Floats* Face Up, Water-activated Flashlight for Easy Retrieval
Through meticulous engineering, the radio floats and is visible on the water surface. And with the water-activated flashlight, it's even easier to find.
Be Prepared for an Emergency
This radio includes an emergency alert feature, allowing you to enjoy your escape to the great outdoors with confidence that others can be informed of any dangers that may come your way. When the alert button is activated, the radio transmits an alert siren followed by transmission of spoken or incidental sounds. This allows you to send the signal to other radios and warn of impending danger.
You can also use the whistle belt clip to let others know that you need help. In addition, there’s a built-in LED flashlight for peace-of-mind during evening adventures, unexpected emergencies and power outages.
Advanced Built-in Flashlight with White and Red LEDs
Select the white LED setting on the built-in flashlight to light your way during evening activities, unexpected emergencies or power outages. If your adventure takes place when it's dark, for example, if you’re stargazing or hunting at night, and you need to view maps, charts or other papers, switch to the red LED setting. This will allow you to read what you need while preserving your night vision.
Know the Weather In Advance
Keep updated with real-time weather conditions by turning on one of 11 weather channels or initiating weather alerts. NOAA radio service may not be available in all areas. Check with your local weather office for frequency and details, or visit www.weather.gov/nwr (Canada: www.msc.ec.gc.ca/msb/weatheradio).
Use the VibraCall™ feature where ringing can be intrusive.
Power through Your Adventures
There are two ways to power your radio: use the included NiMH rechargeable batteries for up to 9 hours or use three AA batteries for up to 23 hours. To recharge the NiMH batteries, choose from one of three ways: connect it to your vehicle adaptor or your computer. Or plug the Y cable charging adaptor into an outlet. This cable features dual micro-USB connectors, so you can charge two radios at once.
