IF YOUR BATTERY ISN’T WORKING,
YOU’RE NOT WORKING.
On the manufacturing line or the fire line, at a crash site or a construction site, you rely on a two-way radio that operates continuously – that won’t stop when it’s dropped, won’t break when it’s shaken, or won’t fail when it’s shocked by static electricity. Whether you’re in public safety or private enterprise, radio batteries that can’t handle the rigors of the real world aren’t a bargain. Because when a radio battery dies and your radio stops, you can’t do your job.
Motorola understands that uninterrupted communications are business-essential and mission-critical. There is no margin for error and no room for malfunction. And they know that other leading radio battery brands don’t deliver what we do. Highly reliable, high-performing batteries that are proven tough. Time after time. Test after test.
MOTOROLA RADIOS AND BATTERIES PERFORM
OPTIMALLY TOGETHER. BY DESIGN.
Unlike aftermarket battery brands, Motorola batteries are designed and developed as an integral component of our two-way radios. No other aftermarket battery manufacturer can offer that certainty and compatibility with Motorola radios. Motorola engineers, manufactures and tests to stringent specifications to make sure their batteries withstand the most unforgiving environments. So you can be confident Motorola radio batteries perform reliably, when you need them most.
Motorola also offers “intrinsically safe” (IS) batteries that are approved for use with the Motorola instrinsically safe approved radio unit. Motorola can only ensure the continued certification and compliance of their radios with the use of Motorola approved intrinsically safe batteries.

ADVANCED IMPRES ™ BATTERIES AND CHARGERS
Along with their standard Motorola radio batteries, Motorola also offer their exclusive IMPRES “smart energy” system. This exclusive battery technology provides adaptive reconditioning and end-of-life display to maximize your talk-time and battery cycle life – all automatically. You can safely leave batteries on the IMPRES charger without damaging them and keep your batteries fully charged. So you can be confident they are always ready and your radio is ready to work, right when you need it.
Motorola IMPRES batteries and chargers also enable the implementation of our industry-exclusive IMPRES Battery Fleet Management System. A software application that enables unprecedented data collection and analysis allowing you to better manage the health and status of your IMPRES batteries.
WHAT’S THE ANATOMY OF
A TOUGH BATTERY?
Every Motorola battery is designed and manufactured to meet our demanding standards. Here’s why their batteries surpass the rest:
Motorola only uses premium-grade cells so you get higher capacity, longer cycle life and a wider temperature range (from as low as -30°C to as high as 60°C). Our cells are so uniform and well made, you can count on the same high energy, high number of charge cycles and lasting durability in virtually every battery.
FLEXIBLE COPPER CIRCUITRY
Unlike the thin wires used for some internal battery connections in the brands Motorola tested, they use circuit boards and other more reliable means to make electrical connections between components in their batteries. So, when the radio gets dropped, Motorola batteries can tolerate higher levels of impact force.
SHOCK - ABSORBING PADDING
Motorola choose shock-absorbing materials to protect the cell pack and circuitry. By dampening shock and vibration inside the battery, they reduce the negative effects of sudden impact. Other brands they tested eliminated padding, which can mean their batteries are more easily damaged during a drop.
DURABLE POLYCARBONATE PLASTIC
For Motorola battery housings, they specify only polycarbonate plastic for optimal protection and
performance. Motorola housings are strong, robust and designed to “bend and flex” when dropped.
DROPS. SHAKES. SHOCKS.
MOTOROLA TOOK ON THE WORST AND
PERFORMED THE BEST.
Motorola proved how tough they were five years ago and are proving it again.
Motorola batteries were put through the paces and lab-tested against competitive batteries. Can other manufacturers match the standards they achieved?
Thirty samples of each battery type were randomly selected and scrutinized: Motorola, Honeywell, Power Products and Multiplier. All are compatible with Motorola’s most popular two-way radios.
Three critical tests were conducted: Drop, Vibration and Electrostatic Discharge. These replicate real-world situations that occur most often during typical battery use. The result? Once again, Motorola batteries surpassed the others in durability, performance and surviving electrostatic discharge.

HAZARDS THAT HARM
OTHER BATTERIES WON’T
Knocks. Drops. Shocks. Vibration. Static. If your radio gets banged on a ride, rattled by heavy equipment or shocked by static electricity, our batteries will stay true and stand tough. These rigorous lab tests prove that Motorola radio batteries perform robustly and reliably, despite the toughest conditions. What’s more, Motorola stands behind every battery they build.
MOTOROLA WON’T COMPROMISE ON
PERFORMANCE. WHY WOULD YOU?
Communication breakdowns are frustrating and unproductive. And downtime can be dangerous when information doesn’t get through. Help protect the safety of your workforce and the success of your projects by using high-quality Motorola batteries. Protect your system investment with long-lasting, rigor-tested Motorola batteries designed specifically for our radios and engineered precisely to our standards.
Whether you’re a police officer on the street or a supervisor on the factory floor, count on our 80 years of engineering expertise to keep communications going strong. Your responsibilities are tough enough…make sure your radio battery is too.
Motorola has a complete portfolio of Motorola Original® and IMPRES™ batteries that have been designed and developed as an integral component of our two-way radios. Furthermore, Motorola's exclusive IMPRES technology provides additional features such as automatic, adaptive reconditioning and displays that show detailed battery life information; all designed to maximize talk time and optimize battery cycle life.
