Seems like a good deal on T47x units, which are just T80x units without Bluetooth and GPS data (but still has data capabilities, hence the "easy pairing" feature).
license-free FRS (22 channels and 121 privacy codes)
35-mile range (mountain-to-valley, otherwise 8mi open water and 2mi neighborhood)
IPX4 weatherproof (splashing water from any direction, no submersion)
built-in LED flashlight
"Easy Pairing" group call
NOAA weather channel and alerts
included rechargeable NiMH battery pack with microUSB charger (can also use 2X regular AA batteries)
I'll go ahead and beat the ham radio folks to the punch: yes, the Baofeng UV-5R is a great entry-level ham radio, and if I was looking for something other than decent walkie talkies, I'd get the Baofeng.
