What is the Smallest Two-Way Radio
The Cobra microTALK CXR725 is currently the world’s smallest high-powered two-way radio, weighing only 3.5 ounces.
Aside from its compact size, with the dimension of 5.5 inches (height) x 1.5 inches (width) x 2 inches (thickness), the modern walkie-talkie approximates the size of some of the latest generation of smartphones today.
Because of its small frame, the two-way radio is also very easy to fit in the pocket. It also takes up very little space in a backpack or an emergency kit.
The CXR725 features VOX hands-free operation, VibrAlert silent paging, backlit display, scan feature, selectable roger beep, ten call tones, and a key lock.
Two-way radio experts and users rank the CXR725 very high on the aspect of ease of use and the device’s weight, which is the lightest among its class of two-way radios.
Small but powerful
Although very small, the CXR725 packs power and has a maximum range of 27 miles in ideal conditions but only up to one mile in urban conditions. The radio has 22 GMRS/FRS channels, broken down into 7 FRS, 8 GMRS, and 7 shared GMRS/FRS channels. It also has 142 privacy codes.
It is also one of the few GMRS radios with a lithium-ion battery, which gives the device a longer life and talk time than other two-way radios using NiMH batteries. This also means less time on recharging.
