One thing I know about living in the south is that you better be on your toes when it comes to the weather. Mother nature seems to be bi-polar here and can’t decide what the weather is one minute to the next. With that being said, you have to always be prepared and the Talkabout T480 is a must have for all families.
The Talkabout™ T480 keeps you and your family ready for emergency situations. Even if the power is out or cell phone towers are down, your radio will be charged and ready to go, so that you can get weather alerts and communicate with your community.
The Talkabout T480 has a built-in FM radio. Change to the FM radio mode and listen to your favorite music or news. With the IP54 weatherproof design, the radio withstands the effects of rain, snow and other weather conditions and With 22 channels and 121 privacy codes, totaling 2,662 combinations, it is easy to find an available channel. The built-in LED flashlight gives you peace-of-mind during evening adventures, unexpected emergencies or power outages. When in danger, easily ask for help. Press the emergency alert button, and the radio will transmit an alert siren followed by spoken or incidental sounds. This will allow others to know that you have an impending danger.
The wall/desk stand is easy to use and keeps the charger cable neatly tucked away. The stand bottom opens and you can roll in the rest of the cable, resulting in no tangling wire. There are three ways to charge the NiMH rechargeable batteries. You can connect it to your vehicle adaptor or your computer, or plug the micro-USB cable into an outlet, plus it will last up to 26 hours. Quiet Charge allows you to charge the radio and turn off calls. You will still receive weather and emergency alerts, so you don’t miss important information.
