GETTING STARTED
Charging a hot battery (above 35°C) results in
reduced discharge capacity, affecting the
performance of the radio. Motorola rapid-rate
battery chargers contain a temperature-sensing
circuit to ensure that the battery is charged
within these temperature limits.
This product is powered by a lithium-ion rechargeable
battery.
•
The following battery tips will help you obtain the
highest performance and longest cycle life from your
Motorola rechargeable battery.
New batteries can be stored up to two years
without significant cycle loss. Store new/unused
batteries, at room temperature, in cool dry area.
•
Batteries which have been in storage should be
charged overnight.
•
Charge your new battery overnight (14-16 hrs)
before using it to obtain maximum battery
capacity and performance.
•
Do not return fully charged batteries to the
charger for an “extra boost”. This action will
significantly reduce cycle life.
•
Charging in non-Motorola equipment may lead
to battery damage and void the battery warranty.
•
•
When charging a battery that is attached to the
radio, turn the radio off to ensure a full charge.
Do not leave your radio and battery in the
charger when not charging. Continuous charging
will shorten battery life. (Do not use your charger
as a radio stand.)
•
The battery should be at about 25°C (room
temperature) whenever possible. Charging a
cold battery (below 10°C) may result in leakage
of electrolyte and ultimately, in failure of the
battery.
•
For optimum battery life and operation use only
Motorola brand chargers. They were designed to
operate as an integrated energy system.

Warning:The battery charger is not waterproof. For
your safety and proper operation of the
charger, IP67 radios MUST be dry prior to
placing in the battery charger for charging.
Do NOT operate the charger, when your
hands are wet or while holding a wet IP67
radio. Do NOT touch the battery contacts,
when your hands are wet. Do NOT put the
battery into water, as this may cause the
IP67 metal contacts to corrode.
