Motorola recently started shipping a new intrinsically-safe TIA 4950 battery for the APX 8000H and APX 8000HXE HAZLOC radio models. The PMNN4547 battery provides 3100 mAh capacity using Li-ion cells and has an improves cold temperature specification. It has a IP68 rating which means it can survive in six feet of water for up to four hours. It also uses IMPRES 2 technology that provides up to 60% more charging cycles as compared to a standard battery.
Requires A New Carry Holder or Leather Case for APX 6000
The new battery provides 16% more capacity than the 2,650 mAh NNTN8930 UL model. Because the PMNN4547 is about 3mm deeper, APX 6000 and SRX 2200 users will need to upgrade their carrying accessories.
The PMLN7901 plastic carry holder is required to fit the new battery. If you are using the rugged APX 6000XE with larger knobs a PMLN7902 is the correct holster. There are also new APX 6000 leather cases with fixed or swivel belt loops available in our online store.
