Motorola T605 H2O Overview

Stay in contact with others, even out on the water, without the need for cell service with the T605 H2O Two-Way Radio from Motorola. This pair of orange radios features a waterproof, floating design, so you can feel comfortable about taking them out in the canoe with you. Should they accidentally end up in the water, they float face up, and the built-in LED flashlight activates to make finding them easy. Using FRS/GMRS channels, they have a range of up to 35 miles. The 22 channels and 121 privacy codes create 2662 unique combinations, so you will always have a clear channel. NOAA weather radio keeps you updated with real-time weather and alerts to warn of possible dangers. An emergency alert button transmits an alert siren followed by spoken or incidental sounds to warn others of your peril, and the built-in LED flashlight provides white or red light in emergencies.

There are many communication features, such as Push-to-Talk (PTT) power boost, which allows you to extend the transmission range by increasing the transmitter power output. Channel scan lets you quickly find a channel. Hands-free communication is provided by iVOX/VOX, which acts like a speakerphone to keep your hands free as you hike. Twenty call tone options let others know it's you when you begin transmission. You can also choose a unique tone to transmit when you finish talking. Quiet Talk (QT) ensures uninterrupted communication with other Motorola radios also having this feature, while VibraCall vibrates instead of emitting a tone to help you stay discreet.

Choose from the included NiMH rechargeable batteries to power the radio for up to nine hours, or use three AA batteries for up to 23 hours. A low battery alert reminds you when power is getting low, so you can recharge or swap batteries. The keypad lock prevents your personalized settings from being inadvertently changed by requiring a passcode to make alterations. Two USB charging cables and a carrying case are included.

Can this radio be charch in 220/240 volt eleetric sistem as well as the 110 volt US sistem ?
Asked by: orkell
The wall charger for the Motorola T605 H20 Two-Way Radio is for 110 volts. You would need to use a step-down transformer to convert the voltage from 220/240 volts. You could charge the radio using the USB cables and the 220/240 volt wall charger that you would use for a smartphone.
