Water Resistant / Waterproof Walkie-Talkie Radios

All walkie-talkies are robust enough to be used outside in a bit of rain. But some users need a higher level of water-resistance from their walkie-talkies.

Here we review some walkie-talkies with IP ratings high enough to be considered "waterproof".

 


Tritan Tough Talk Waterproof Walkie Talkie Review

Walkie Talkie summary

The small, lightweight and IP67-rated waterproof Tritan Tough Talk packs a considerable punch for its size, and its IP67 rating means that it should "survive" being dropped into water up to 1 metrwe deep provided it is taken out within 30 minutes.

It has a full 4 watts power output, much more than the licence-free PMR446 walkie-talkies which have only 0.5 watts.

PRICE RANGE

They are sold in a "twin pack" for around £179 + VAT depending on quantity purchased.

WHAT YOU GET

They are sold in a "twin pack" containing two radios, with their battery packs, and two desk charger units in a strong re-usable plastic carry case.

PROS

These robust Tritan walkie-talkies provide the full power of a "licencable" radio at a far lower cost than most other 4 watt walkie-talkies on the market, and as a bonus are IP67 (which basically means "waterproof") so good in outdoor environments where they may get wet or dropped into water.

CONS

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. IP67 is not as good as IP668 (see our Entel HT782 walkie-talkies) and so may not be ideal for use next to, for example, a swimming pool.

VERDICT

A very good value-for-money full power IP67 waterproof walkie-talkie radio.

Entel HT782 Submersible Walkie Talkie Review

WALKIE TALKIE SUMMARY

The Entel HT782 offers complete waterproofness at an affordable price.

PRICE RANGE

£179 + VAT each, dropping to £169 + VAT per walkie-talkie if five or more are bought together.

WHAT YOU GET

The Entel HT782 is sold singly with a desk charger unit.

PROS

The remarkable HT782 walkie-talkie is "IP68" rated, which means that it will survive being immersed in quite deep water.

CONS

It is a fairly expensive walkie-talkie to buy, so there is little point in buying this radio unless you need a completely watertight walkie-talkie.

VERDICT

The Entel HT782 walkie-talkie is ideally suited for applications where it is likely that the radio may get dropped into water, for example in swimming pools, leisure centres, or for use by lifeguards in any location.
