Smartphones are becoming increasingly popular amongst backcountry types, as a decent option for communication when the shit hits the fan. However, if you just want to chat to your partner a mile away, you still need a two-way radio – or, you did.

That’s the problem Beartooth Radio is trying to solve with their snazzy smartphone case, which will use short-range radio frequencies to allow you to talk to another Beartooth user within about a two-mile range. In addition, you can also send encrypted texts (perfect for the log-cabin-dwelling NSA-hating survivalist type in your life), share your location, and send out a distress signal. It operates on the same FRS frequency as standard Walmart two-way radios, so you don’t need an operating license like you would for more powerful radio sets, either.

Walkie-Talkie Smartphone Handset

“Walkie talkies were once powerful and helpful tools also. Some time ago when mobile phones were not yet created, walkie talkies were utilized for constant correspondence and have created what we have today. All things considered, just a little number of individuals utilize a genuine walkie talkie these days. Despite the fact that it is a useful and helpful apparatus, why bring another gadget when you can have one in your cellular telephone?”

I only tend to see truck drivers with walkie-talkies these days as I drive past them. With the walkie-talkie smartphone handset, you can join in on that scene too.

The handset plugs in to the headphone port on any smartphone and has a microphone built in to the handset. To talk, you push the button. It has adjustable volume and the ability to pickup and end calls.

The handset requires 2 AAA batteries to run but other than that, its just plug and play.

Available from Perpetual Kid with a price tag of $19.99.
