          Comments about Midland GXT5000 Military-Grade Communication Radio:

          The radios are well built and function as expected. I haven't been able to locate extra batteries which is a negative. Battery life is about 15 hours with little usage. Also, no charger is available that can be used in a car. If the power goes out, your in trouble as far as recharging the radios goes.

              We use these exclusively for communication in a 20,000sqft warehouse stocked full of merchandise. Signal is clear (unlike our old Motorolas) and the warehouse guys love 'em for their toughness.
