Motorola Original IMPRES High-Capacity Battery Sale

Time To Check The Age of Your Motorola Batteries

2-Way Radio Batteries

Battery chemistry degrades after 24 months of use and can affect radio performance. Many intermittent radio problems are solved with a fresh battery. In this article we will show you how to check the age of your batteries and recommend the best replacement for the most popular Motorola radios.

How to Check a Motorola Battery Date Code

All Motorola batteries have a 4 digit date code on the battery label. The first 2 digits indicate the year manufactured and the second two digits identify the week. Check the date codes on your Motorola batteries to determine if you are ready for replacements.

The date code on this example is highlighted in yellow. The date code,4 Digit Warranty Date Code 1401, indicates 2014 and the first week of the year. Most IMPRES batteries carry an 18 month warranty to hold 80% of the capacity. In this example, the capacity is 1900 mAh. As capacity degrades, so does output power and talk time. You may find radios start to perform poorly at the end of the shift.

Most Popular Motorola “Proven Tough” Radio Batteries

The second generation IMPRES 2 PMNN4486 is our favorite for the APX 6000 and APX 7000 radios because it packs 3,400 mAh capacity in a small housing. For those who need maximum battery life, the IMPRES 2 PMNN4487 with 4,850 mAh is the best choice. All IMPRES 2 batteries have an improved 24 month warranty.

The APX 4000 standard battery is the 1900 mAh NNTN8128 but we like the high-capacity 2,700 mAh PMMN4448.

Links to our XTS 5000 and XTS 2500,1500 BatteriesXTS 5000, XTS 2500, XTS 1500 Cluster

The IMPRES Li-ion NNTN6034 with 4,150 mAh capacity continues to outperform all other XTS 5000 batteries.

The high-capacity 2700 mAh NNTN7335 IMPRES battery is the best choice for the XTS 2500, XTS 1500, and PR1500.

Links to MOTOTRBO XPR 300060007000 Series BatteriesXPR 7000, XPR 6000, XPR 3000 Series

The high-capacity PMNN4409 is the most popular battery for the XPR 3000 and 7000 series radios.
The high-capacity PMNN4077 IMPRES battery is recommended when using XPR 6000 series radios with a Bluetooth adapter or in analog mode.

Links to CP200PR400CP185CP110 BatteriesCP200, CP185, CP110

The Motorola 2,190 mAh high-capacity NNTN4497CR is the standard battery that ships with a new CP200d. It is also the best choice for the legacy CP200 and PR400 radios.
CP185 users should select the high-capacity 2,150 mAh PMNN4080 for the best performance.

Links to BPR40DTRVL50 BatteriesBPR40, DTR650, VL50 Radio Batteries

The PMNN4071 standard battery or the PMNN4075 high capacity Li-ion battery are the most popular choices for BPR40 radios.

DTR650, 550, 410 digital radios will get 19 hours of typical operation with the high-capacity 53964. VL50 users should choose the 56557 battery.

Link to HT750, HT1250, HT1550, PR860 BatteriesHT750, HT1250, HT1550

The IMPRES HNN4001 has 1,900 mAh capacity and automatic reconditioning technology when used with an IMPRES charger. It is compatible with HT750, HT1250, HT1550, and PR860 model radios.
We also carry Vertex Standard OEM and Power Products batteries for Kenwood, HYT, Harris, Tait, Icom, and many other brands. Visit our online battery catalog and our online store for audio accessories, chargers, and carrying cases.
