The best walkie talkie in 2021—connecting the world seamlessly

Two-way radios, or walkie-talkies, are one of the communication ways between parties. You can rely on them when cell phone service is spotty, they can keep in touch with one another, and they are a crucial tool to stay in the wilderness or even on the water. But how to choose a walkie-talkie, now I am going to explain it in an easy-to-understand way.

A. Some problems when buying walkie talkies

1. Why does a walkie-talkie have no distance parameter?

Although the transmission distance is an important performance index of the walkie-talkie, as a kind of ultrashort wave communication equipment, the transmission distance will be affected by the power of the walkie-talkie, the surrounding obstacles, and the height.

Power: the transmission power is the most critical essential parameter of walkie-talkies. The power will directly affect the stability of the signal and transmission distance. In simple terms, the greater the output power, the greater the communication distance.

Obstacles: Obstacles can affect the transmission distance of walkie-talkie signals, such as buildings, trees, etc., all of them can absorb and block the radio waves emitted by walkie talkies. Therefore, using walkie-talkies in urban areas will significantly reduce the communication distance.

Height: The height of the use of radio has a significant impact. The higher the place it is used, the farther the signal will be transmitted.

2. Can different brands of walkie-talkie talk to each other?

The brand of the walkie-talkie is different, but the principle is the same, and they can communicate with each other as long as the frequency is the same.

3. What is the communication distance of the walkie-talkie?

For example, civil walkie talkie generally under 5w, up to 5km in open areas, and approximately 3km in buildings.

4. Do I need a license to use walkie-talkies?

According to your local policy, kindly check with your country's telecommunication department.

5. What’s the difference between a digital walkie-talkie and an analog walkie-talkie?

Digital walkie-talkies are an upgrade version of an analog walkie-talkie. Compared with a traditional analog walkie-talkie, the voice is clearer, the confidence is stronger, and the ability to transmit data is better. But the price also higher than a traditional analog walkie-talkie. If encrypted communication contents are required, you can choose digital walkie-talkies. On the other hand, an analog walkie-talkie is enough for regular use.

6. How to check the safety protection level?

Most walkie-talkies are marked with their own waterproof and dustproof grade, which IPXX represents. The first X means the dustproof grade, and the second X means the waterproof rate. For example, IP67 means level6 dustproof and level7 waterproof.

Dust proof GradeWaterproof Grade
0No protection against contact and ingress of objects0No protection against ingress of water
1>50 mm

2.0 in

Any large surface of the body, such as the back of a hand, but no protection against deliberate contact with a body part

1Dripping water

Dripping water (vertically falling drops) shall have no harmful effect on the specimen when mounted in an upright position onto a turntable and rotated at 1 RPM.

2>12.5 mm

0.49 in

Fingers or similar objects

2Dripping water when tilted at 15°

Vertically dripping water shall have no harmful effect when the enclosure is tilted at an angle of 15° from its normal position. A total of four positions are tested within two axes.

3>2.5 mm

0.098 in

Tools, thick wires, etc.

3Spraying water

Water falling as a spray at any angle up to 60° from the vertical shall have no harmful effect, utilizing either: a) an oscillating fixture, or b) A spray nozzle with a counterbalanced shield.

Test a) is conducted for 5 minutes, then repeated with the specimen rotated horizontally by 90° for the second 5-minute test. Test b) is conducted (with shield in place) for 5 minutes minimum.

4>1 mm

0.039 in

Most wires, slender screws, large ants etc.

4Splashing of water

Water splashing against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effect, utilizing either:

a) an oscillating fixture, or b) A spray nozzle with no shield. Test a) is conducted for 10 minutes. b) is conducted (without shield) for 5 minutes minimum.

5Dust protected

Ingress of dust is not entirely prevented, but it must not enter in sufficient quantity to interfere with the satisfactory operation of the equipment.

5Water jets

Water projected by a nozzle (6.3 mm (0.25 in)) against enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.

6Dust-tight

No ingress of dust; complete protection against contact (dust-tight). A vacuum must be applied. Test duration of up to 8 hours based on airflow.

6Powerful water jets

Water projected in powerful jets (12.5 mm (0.49 in)) against the enclosure from any direction shall have no harmful effects.

  7Immersion, up to 1 meter (3 ft 3 in) depth

Ingress of water in harmful quantity shall not be possible when the enclosure is immersed in water under defined conditions of pressure and time (up to 1 meter (3 ft 3 in) of submersion).

  8Immersion, 1 meter (3 ft 3 in) or more depth

The equipment is suitable for continuous immersion in water under conditions which shall be specified by the manufacturer. However, with certain types of equipment, it can mean that water can enter but only in such a manner that it produces no harmful effects. The test depth and duration is expected to be greater than the requirements for IPx7, and other environmental effects may be added, such as temperature cycling before immersion.

B. How to choose the right walkie-talkie?

1. What are the brands of walkie-talkies?

Motorola/Kenwood/Baofeng.,etc

2. How to choose a walkie-talkie in different scenes?
