Clicked on an ad on Facebook out of curiosity. Click technical specs and it indicates FRS, 1 watt ERP. Pretty expensive for FRS radios that look similar in profile to smart phones.

It seems a bit sketchy. It appears to be related to an indiegogo project called Power Talkie that was an FRS portable that required linking to a smartphone to communicate. A bunch of folks still waiting for those devices complaining on indiegogo.

I am sticking with commercial part 95 radios.

Got a good laugh out of that. A slim profile, so others don’t know what you’re carrying? Yes, I’m sure they’ll want your FRS radio which will likely be non-functioning because you bought it and completely neglected it. This is simply the new face of the snake oil salesman of old times lore. Fixd is another fine example of this, albeit with a different sales pitch which doesn’t revolve around SHTF or whatever.
