Pair of Portable Kids Walkie Talkie $9.99 Delivered @ svbony via eBay

200

While searching for a pair of "Kids" walkie talkie, have stumbled upon this one.
(I know, Uniden ones are good but didn't want to spend too much for just toys.)

Not sure why but the same seller has the same product listed as $32.99, and I guess it makes this one a bargain.
Also, looking at the price of other Kids walkie talkies, I believe this is a good deal.

Anyway, I have received the product after 3 days and they work all fine as described.

    What makes walkie talkies for kids vs for adults? What's the difference?

      Kids ones are often encrypted so they can only talk to each other, not talk to random CB operators

        Kids radios are not encrypted (or to be pedantic, scrambled) as it adds cost. Uniden has a "Kid Zone" feature which is literally just enabling CTCSS 10 so the kids can't hear other people (unless they too have CTCSS 10 turned on). Everyone can hear the kids talk though.

          Interesting, thanks for the correction

      Range and quality

    •  

      The frequency, this kids device operates on completely different frequencies then normal UHF CB radios. So you wont be able to talk/listen on the truckies channel, repeaters and regular radios people have in their 4WD's etc.

        Not quite; all CB radios must use the same frequencies - otherwise they will require a licence to operate. Radios aimed at kids are usually just built more cheaply, have shorter range, and are smaller in size.

          No mate, sorry but these radios operate on 446.00625 to 446.19375MHz https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PMR446

          UHF CB in Australia operate on 476.4250 to 477.4125 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UHF_CB

            Yes, and that is why these are illegal here without a licence. Refer to the Use worldwide section of the link you posted:

            PMR446 radios use frequencies that in Australia, the U.S., and Canada are allocated to amateur radio operators, and military radar systems.

            All legal CB radios in Australia do not require a licence and are all on the same set of frequencies.

    Note description says these are PMR446 transceivers which may require a licensed to operate in Australia (if they're legal at all). Probably why they're selling them cheap.

    Wikipedia says

    PMR446 radios use frequencies that in Australia, the U.S., and Canada are allocated to amateur radio operators, and military radar systems.[6]

    Can anyone more knowledgeable chime in?

      Note description says these are PMR446 transceivers which may require a licensed to operate in Australia (if they're legal at all).

      The 446MHz band requires a licence to use in Australia. The radio specs does say it can also use the 433MHz LIPD band but that's limited to 25mW here, so the 500mW output of those radios would make them illegal.

    Ordered a pair. Got this eBay message from seller 5 minutes later.

    'hello,thank you very much for your order, we will ship it for you as soon as possible, but I want to know where you saw our advertisement of this radio on eBay? ? Did anyone push it to you?'

    'Mate you just got Ozbargained' I replied

    Just be aware that the fines for using illegal radios like this in Australia can be pretty severe.

      Not my problem. My 10yr old son can deal with that.

    Don't buy it's illegal

    Got mine today. It did not come with batteries.

    Will give them 24hrs before I leave my feedback

    •  

      Same here. No batteries or connecting cable included.

    •  

      Mine didn't come with batteries nor charging cable and I have no issue with that as they were not stated in what's in the box description.
      Were you seriously expecting all that at this price? C'mon.
      I don't think they deserve a bad review because they didn't include batteries if that's what you are planning to do.
