A year on, May 2017, and these little Oricoms are still the best. I love their simplicity and reliability. Three working days out of each battery charge is a good feature too.

Not real happy

Hi Robbo, The units do not seem like they are operating ideally. Line od sight you should expect much further range. Can you contact our Support Team on 02 4574 8888 or 1300 889 785 to see how we can help? Best regards, Oricom UHF CB Radios

Happy with mine

published

I've had mine for about 2 years and have used them on various occasions during this time, mostly for contacting other drivers. I agree with the previous reviewer. The audio is good, the battery life is excellent, and the range is more than I expected (about 10km line of sight, or 3-4km in forest (depending on terrain)). The criticism regarding the clunky menu is also true. For example, to me, changing channels is not an intuitive process. Overall a good buy at around $80 (for 2, includes charger)

UHF2190 3 days only red lights when charging. Any ideas emailed oricom noreply yet. Bit irritated as the manual doesnt say if lights turn green when charged.

G’day Grumpy. Mine is only the 1280 pair with cradle charger, but their probably very similar. The 2 red lights (one for each unit) stay “on” from memory. That would indicate to me that their settled against the extra low voltage contacts properly. If the cradle charger isn’t on a flat surface, one or the other light would go out, as they are just a light contact...
I charge them every blue moon, overnight, and their good for three full days of use after that.

ps. Mine are maybe 10 years old now, and still hold their full charge for many months.

They have a little pack of three AAA batteries. You can remove this and replace with disposable batteries, if you have to.
