Features of the CPS CP101

CPS CP101
  • VOX operated – You can use this device completely hands-free as transmission can be voice activated. Simply pre-program the device, and you will not have to discontinue whatever you are doing, be that hunting or hiking, to communicate with your friends.
  • Battery saver – When in sleep mode, the device uses a minimal amount of power, effectively conserving it for when you need it the most, so you can be certain that the device will not die on you in your hour of need!
  • Rechargeable batteries – The device supports both disposable alkaline batteries, and rechargeable NiMH batteries. Use rechargeable batteries when you have access to your charges, but remember to pack alkaline batteries whenever you are going out on an adventure!

Advantages of the CPS CP101


  • Easy to use – This device boasts very intuitive design, and uncomplicated buttons and knobs that are a breeze to use, so you or your child will not be overwhelmed by it. It is extremely user-friendly and easy to use!
  • Small and compact – The device is small and easy to carry around. Its ergo-design allows it to easily fit into any hand, and you can clip it to your vest or jacket with ease.
  • No license needed – The device operates on the standard bandwidths so there is no special license needed to operate it. This makes the use hassle free and eliminates the additional cost associated with using the device.
  • Worldwide certification – The device is certified by governments around the globe, including USA, China, European Union and others. This helps to protect the manufacturer and the end consumer, by verifying that standards of manufacture have been adhered to.
  • Pre-programed channels – every walkie-talkie leaves the assembly line of the factory with a pre-programed set of channels. They are all on the same frequency so using them as two-way communicators is possible immediately after you unpack them, as no assembly or fine-tuning is required.

One of the drawbacks of this product is its limited area of operation. Signal is strong in a two-mile radius, and after that starts to dissipate. This is not uncommon for many walkie-talkies, but the positive side here is that within that two-mile radius communication is strong and clear.

CPS CP101 walkie-talkie is an affordable and reliable two-way radio that is easy to use and hassle-free. It is an ideal present for children and is praised for its functionality by many walkie-talkie enthusiasts. The best thing is, it will not empty your wallet, so you can buy a few of them right of the bat, and have them handy for hiking trips and outdoor adventures.​
