No matter how long we plugged them in, they wouldn't recharge correctly - still had only one tic. Taking them back - will try one more time.

This was recommended by a friend, that he gave his grandchildren these radios.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GraniteStater Great set at a great price
I bought this Midland set primarily because the unit are rechargeable. I had already ordered and used a less expensive set from LL Bean that took replacement batteries. I didn't realize what a hassle it would be to change the batteries. Anyhow, this set has amazing range and great sound quality at a reasonable price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Capybarus Poor quality and don't hold charge
I suspected that these radios are a lemon on the first day when took them out of the box and a clip for one of them won't stay attached. I still decided to give them a try and used while hiking with a companion. Despite having been fully charged the radios showed only 1 bar of battery charge when we turned them on the trail and within an hour into the hike one of them shut off. Put them for two days into the charger, but the charge on both of them did not go above 1 bar. From the other reviews I see that this is not an exception and sympathize with LL Bean to be handling the returns on this product. Otherwise a great concept - small rugged radios with decent two-way communication ability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by buffalodave very useful
We use these to keep track of our kid as he moves between friend's homes in the neighborhood. A very useful tool! Good range, clarity, and the rechargeable batteries are great.

I purchased the Midland LXT500VP3 Radio Set for personal use. My planned usage was for around the house, vacations, skiing and an occasional bus trip. After ordering the radio set, I read reviews and they were not very encouraging. I was hoping that most were just a fluke. One of the problems that I read about was that they would not hold a charge. That was my problem. I was able to charge the radio set for the first time but after that, it would only charge to 1 bar out of 4 and would not hold that charge. I will be returning.
