From the Manufacturer
Uniden MHS126 Marine Radio
Finally, a marine handheld radio with a design that fits into your hand, with a large display that is clear and easy to operate. If you drop it in the water, it floats to the surface, and glow in the dark seals and power key allows you to find it easily. No more difficult menu settings just to change between 3 levels of power, 1, 2.5 or 6 watts. Just set it one time at a 1 or 2.5 watts to maximize the battery life, and when you need the maximum transmit allowed, full 6 watts, just use the POWER BOOST key and you have instant full power. The bright strobe can easily be turned on, flashing SOS, getting the attention of others when you are in need of help.
The design is not only attractive, but achieves the highest level of water tightness, JIX8/IPX8 standard, allowing for complete submersion of 5 feet for over 30 minutes.

It also comes complete with an AC adapter, DC charger, charging cradle, 11 hour rechargeable battery, an accessory battery tray, and a heavy duty swivel belt clip. A mic jack is available for an optional mic if desired.
