Like most rental companies, we supply “50% chargers”, meaning we’ll provide sufficient chargers to charge half the walkie talkies at once. They will be fully charged when you receive them from us.
The expected battery life is eight hours with typical use (5% transmit, 5% receive and 90% standby). Batteries will take approximately 1 hour for a rapid (90%) charge, at which point the charging indicator on the base will flash green. Full charge takes around 3 hours.
Yes you need an Ofcom licence to use higher powered units, but don’t worry! Most rental companies will supply you with a paper copy of our licence, which will cover you. We send one out with every booking.
Incredibly unlikely. Digital radios can be encrypted to avoid this problem. If you make use of all the encryption features on a DP1400 radio, there’s a higher chance of you winning the lottery!
A repeater extends the range of walkie-talkies. It consists of a box of electronics and an antenna which you put somewhere high in the centre of the area where you need coverage. It gives you a much greater range on 2 channels.
Most of our customers use earpieces with the radios. Firstly it means that conversations can be heard in a noisy environment. Secondly it give you more privacy as it means your radios’ conversations won’t be heard by members of the public.
The short answer is “no”. We use encryption to prevent interruptions to calls. You can only hear someone on your channel if they use the same encryption settings that you are using. On or our DP1400 digital models, the chance of this happening is around 1 in 16 million!
