Talkabout™ T480

Emergency Preparedness

The T480 keeps you and your family ready for emergency situations with its plugged-in, always-on connectivity and instant communication. Even if the power is out or cell phone towers are down, your radio will be charged and ready to go. Listen to your favorite music or news with the built-in FM radio, or keep updated with real-time weather conditions by tuning into NOAA weather channels and turning on weather alerts. Communicate with any other FRS/GMRS radios regardless of brand by being on the same channel and privacy code. With a range of up to 35 miles and custom call tones that help grab the attention of members in your group before you start speaking, the T480 is an essential tool for emergency preparedness. To power the radios, use the included NiMH rechargeable batteries for up to 10 hours or use 3 AA batteries for up to 26 hours.
