Two-way radios, commonly known as walkie-talkies, are a popular communication choice for maintenance teams, contractors, fire and safety personnel, air traffic control, amateur radio operators and even hunters.
Capable of transmitting and receiving, these handheld portable devices must rely on plenty of battery power for continued conversation.
The capacity of your radio’s battery is generally measured in milli-Ampere hours (mAh). This indicates how much power the battery can hold. The higher the mAh rating, the longer talk time you can expect to receive.
With a variety of features including privacy codes, call alerts, GPS capability, weather channels and voice-activation, your two-way radio likely requires AA or AAA alkaline batteries or rechargeable batteries such as Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) and Nickel Cadmium (NiCad).
