How are PeakPTT Two Way Radios Better Than Walkie Talkies?

Communication is a vital part of every business. If you own or manage a construction company, warehouse retail store, farm, delivery business, or vehicle fleet, you understand that long-distance communication is a must-have. Problems with communication at work can cause serious problems with accountability, efficiency, and even safety.

Some people turn to walkie-talkies to improve communication, but walkie-talkies are an ineffective fix for a number of reasons. They’re unreliable and don’t provide long-distance communication like other radios. PeakPTT two-way radios on the other hand are extremely reliable and have a virtually unlimited range. Below, we’ll go over in detail how PeakPTT two-way radios are better than walkie-talkies.


Walkie-talkies are not long distance. If you’re trying to communicate to teams out in the field, on the road, or even across a warehouse retail store, walkie-talkies simply can’t provide the long-distance communication you need.

PeakPTT radios on the other hand utilize existing LTE wireless data networks to provide a virtually unlimited range from tier-one carriers. Plus, there are Wi-Fi-equipped radios that can use Wi-Fi networks to connect.

Quality of Communication

Even when two or more walkie-talkies are able to transmit messages, the audio is often filled with static and difficult to decipher. This can result in misheard messages and miscommunication.

PeakPTT two-way radios provide crystal-clear audio, regardless of the environment. They utilize noise-canceling technology in order to ensure that messages are clearly sent and received, even when there is loud background noise.


Walkie-talkies are often a cheap option for communication, but they aren’t built to last. Dust and moisture can get into walkie-talkies and easily break them. Or, a short drop can render them useless, resulting in the need to regularly replace them.

With rugged PeakPTT radios, this isn’t an issue. PeakPTT offers durable radios that are built to withstand dust, water, and drops, meaning that they won’t be easily broken.

We offer several durable radios including PTT-624G which is IP 68 rated, making it an ultra-rugged communication device. It’s tested to withstand more than 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes!

Battery Life

Battery life is another important factor. Inferior walkie-talkies need to be recharged often, which can result in dead radios during shifts.

PeakPTT radios feature high-quality batteries that are built to last for days. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about radios dying when employees need them for their shifts.

If your business is using walkie-talkies for your daily communication needs, you’ve probably noticed problems in the past. With PeakPTT, these problems can become practically obsolete. Ditch those walkie-talkies and switch to PeakPTT today!
