Photos: Motorola's TLKR walkie-talkies

They're perfect for short-range communication (and fun).

Crave UK

Come in walkie-talkie fans. Over. The Motorola TLKR T5 two-way radio not only looks good but works pretty well too. With a potential range of 6km--in perfect conditions, natch--we managed to get it working all around Crave UK's trendy penthouse offices, which beats the pants off those toy ones you get at Toys "R" Us.

You can pick up a pair of these for about 60 pounds (about $125), which we think isn't bad at all. They're very robust, so they're ideal for outdoor use. Whether you a skier, hiker, climber or just like messing around with walkie-talkies--and who doesn't? over--these are perfect for short- to medium-range communication.

Other features include a room monitor that lets you listen in to another TLKR T5 via voice activation--useful if you're the paranoid type. There are several ring tones you can choose from and an automatic "roger" beep so you don't have to say it every time you finish a conversation. But where's the fun in that?
