Incoming calls (high

•
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.
•
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 in a 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.

Recycling or Disposal of Batteries
Motorola endorses and encourages the recycling
of all re-chargeable batteries. Contact your local
Motorola dealer for further information.
Charging the Battery
If a battery is new, or its charge level is very low,
you will need to charge the battery before you
can use it in your radio.
The P icon flashes when the battery is flat
and the hardware error tone will sound. This icon
will only appear when a genuine Motorola battery
is used.
Note: Batteries are shipped uncharged from the
factory. New batteries could prematurely
indicate full charge, charge a new battery for
14-16 hrs before initial use.

STUN/UNSTUN
For added security and to avoid abuse of the
radio system in which you operate, a feature
known as Stun/Unstun is included in your
radio.
This feature can only be activated by your
system manager or administrator.
For example, if your radio is stolen and is being
used illegally, your system administrator can
send a signal which will stun the radio making
it incapable of being used. This feature is also
useful if the system is being abused by a user
who is not complying with the correct
communications protocol.
The radio can only be unstunned, i.e. returned
to operational use, by an unstun signal sent
from the system administrator or returning the
radio for reprogramming.
