It is that time again to check your radio batteries so you keep your communications loud and clear. Batteries begin to degrade after 18-24 months of use and can affect radio performance. Many intermittent radio problems are solved with a fresh battery.
How to Read a Motorola Battery Date Code
All Motorola batteries have a 3 digit date code on the battery label. Check the date code on your Motorola battery and if the first digit is a “0” or “9” it is a good time to replace it.
The first digit represents the “Year” and the next digits are the “Week” manufactured. For example; 036 is the 36th week of 2010.
All Motorola batteries carry a replacement warranty of at least a year after the date code and probably longer if marked IMPRES or contain NiCD cells.
