The difference between Consumer radios and Business radios is defined by the frequencies they use.  Most consumer radios, often referred to as bubble pack radios,  are limited to use only a specific list of frequencies, as set aside by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).  This makes them much more congested than private channels available on business radios that we sell. Consumer radios are also limited by the amount of power that they can transmit.  Usually 1 watt or 1/2 watt, depending on the frequency.   Even under ideal conditions you could only expect about a half mile or less.  Business radios have more power to meet the needs of large industries.   For example, we offer the VX-350, a 5-watt business radio that has plenty of power when you need it.  If you expect to use your radios all day, then battery capacity as well as chemistry has to be a consideration.   Capacity is measured in Milliamp Hours (mAh).  The more mAh the longer your battery will last before needing to be recharged.   As far as battery chemistry technology available today, there are 3 types:  NiCAD, NiMH, and Lithium-Ion.   Lithium-Ion is by far the best since it doesn't build up a  memory effect  like NiCAD and NiMH durability and a way better warranty are other differences. As you can see, there are a many reasons why we don't offer any consumer radios, but mainly it's because customer satisfaction is our highest priority, which is why we stand behind all the equipment we represent.
