" ...  Good battery and durable.  ...  "
comment
" ...  They run through batteries very fast.  ...  "
comment
" ...  They operate on (3) AA batteries, which I'd recommend be alkaline re-chargable for good power and continued re-use.  ...  "
comment
" ...  The more advanced walkie talkies with longer battery life are definitely way too complicated for my grandma to use, so I'm happy to buy batteries extra often instead of having to run up and check on her every time I hear a noise-- which, most things I hear that I think are her are actually the neighbors or the wind, but 1/10 times she really does need something so I could never NOT check.  ...  "
