Wind Up Walkie Talkie

When my son goes through the neighborhood to find someone to play with, he takes an FMRS walkie talkie with him. They have a range of about a mile, though it’s not like he goes anywhere near that far. The use of the walkie talkies are free and are limited to calling home, making them ideal in this situation.

Except for one problem: they take batteries. Every few weeks, the batteries need to be replaced. These FMRS walkie talkies don’t have that problem. They include a hand crank and can also be charged with a USB connector.

A pair of these walkie talkies can be had for around $110 US, though the Thumbs Up UK store suggests a minimum of 6 items are required. Think I’ll stick with the radios I have, thanks.
