Cobra CXR925 Review

When it comes to innovation and cutting edge technology, we, as a society, are perpetually lured into buying the latest and greatest products on the market. We all want the bells and whistles that come with these products. However, we aren’t always willing to embrace the hefty price tag that often comes attached to these products.

Fortunately, Cobra Electronics understand this, as their products tend to deliver all of the latest innovation, but at a price consumers can afford. The Cobra CXR925 is a radio that delivers the newest and most powerful features in the way of two-way radios but without the strain on a prospective buyer’s wallet.

Product description

The Cobra CXR925 is a Micro TALK 2-way radio that allows for up to 35 miles of coverage and is teeming with features that make this radio one of the best on the market. It comes complete with 22 channels, 142 privacy codes, two lithium rechargeable batteries, weather alert features, the new high-tech and innovative Rewind-Say-Again voice recorder, VOX hands-free capabilities, and countless other options that make these radios the envy of walkie-talkie users all over the globe.

Charge and power

The Cobra CXR925 radio comes with two compact, rechargeable high capacity lithium batteries that can be recharged from either a desktop charger or a wall adapter charger. Regardless of the charging mechanism, the batteries tend to grant up to 10 hours of battery life. Without question, these devices provide the maximum power allowed by law and have the highest capacity lithium ion batteries in the industry.

Technical specifications

Unlike other walkie-talkies on the market, The Cobra CXR925 is more akin to the size of a CB radio. Measuring at just over seven inches in height and almost two inches in width, these devices pack a ton of power into a small design. In addition, this product includes an LCD display that provides maximum visibility even at night.

Warranty information

All Cobra products come with a standard one year manufacturer warranty that covers all parts and labors. Because these devices are small in size, the repair work can be incredibly intricate. Repair attempts should never be performed by owners. If the devices have been tampered with or have been used in conjunction with unauthorized accessories the warranty is voided. In addition, the warranty does not include improper usage, roll-overs, crushes, or devices that have been submerged in water. It does, however, include any faulty equipment or functions that are not working properly.

Standard contents

This product, which comes in lead free packaging, includes two radios, two compact rechargeable high capacity lithium ion batteries, a two-port desktop charger, a desktop charger wall adapter that can also charge one radio through its speaker/microphone/charge jack, belt clips for securing the devices during movement, and the Cobra CXR925 user’s manual.
