Compact Small Walkie Talkie Reviews

We list here some of the best super-small, compact and lightweight walkie-talkie radios.


CPS Telecom CP183 Review

Walkie Talkie summary

The truly tiny CP183 walkie-talkie is an amazingly small and light radio, weighing in at a shockingly-light 65 grammes. It is a standard, no-licence-needed "PMR446" walkie-talkie.

In spite of it's diminutive dimensions, we have tested and confirmed that its transmission range is as good as any much larger PMR446 walkie-talkie.

PRICE RANGE

Around £50 each.

WHAT YOU GET

It comes ready-to-use with a USB charging lead in the box and a small charger for charging the battery out of the walkie-talkie. Optional extras include various earpiece/microphones, spare battery packs and a 4-slot desktop multi-charger.

PROS

The tiny size, if smallness and lightness is what you are after, the diminutive CP183 fits the bill! It is also a solidly made little radio, and it has all of the usual licence-free radio features you would expect.

CONS

It is so small you might worry that you would lose it. Also its speaker is not very loud, although it can be used in conjunction with a range of earpiece/microphones.

VERDICT

An amazing radio in such a small package. We like it.

CPS Telecom CP228 Review

WALKIE TALKIE SUMMARY

The CP228 feels like a little piece of luxury in your hand. 

It has the "look and feel" of a quality mobile phone, with a lovely gold-on-black, easy to read backlit LCD display.

PRICE RANGE

They cost £69 + VAT each, discounted to £59 + VAT if several are purchased together.

WHAT YOU GET

It comes ready-to-use with a USB charging lead in the box and a small charger for charging the battery out of the walkie-talkie. Optional extras available include various earpiece/microphones, spare battery packs and a 4-slot desktop multi-charger.

PROS

It is a high-end business PMR446 walkie talkie specifically for commercial use. It is small, light, easy to use and built of durable polycarbonate casing with an all-round aluminium casing.

CONS

None we can see!

VERDICT

A beautifully made, elegant little radio, ideally suited for "smart" locations: hotels, department stores, restaurants are good examples.

Tritan Connect Walkie Talkie Review

Walkie Talkie summary

The small, lightweight Tritan Connect packs a considerable punch for its size. It has a full 5 watts power output, much more than the licence-free PMR446 walkie-talkies which have only 0.5 watts.

PRICE RANGE

They cost between £69 - £79 + VAT each, depending on quantity purchased.

WHAT YOU GET

Each radio comes with a belt clip, battery pack and a "drop-in" desk charger unit.

PROS

These robust Tritan walkie-talkies provide the full power of a "licensable" radio at a far lower cost than most other 4/5 watt walkie-talkies on the market.

CONS

Don't forget that to use the Tritan walkie-talkie legally in the United Kingdom, you must get a basic Ofcom "Simple UK" radio licence costing £75 every five years.

VERDICT

A very good value-for-money full power walkie-talkie radio.
