IS NOT AN OPTION…
You're sprinting after a suspect, rushing into a burning building or standing on a ladder pulling out someone from the flames. When time is of the essence, your radio is your lifeline. Yet if you accidentally drop it, you could kill its battery on impact and cut short your communications.
Not so with Motorola.
Motorola builds radio batteries to withstand the kind of impacts your radio absorbs every day. Then they prove it, testing performance after dropping them 42 times onto concrete.
Watch Proven Tough Drop Test
TOUGHER THAN THE REST
IN THE DROP TEST
A firefighter scrambling up a ladder. A supervisor walking the assembly line. A hospitality manager making rounds at a hotel. Whether you set it down or clip it on, one thing is certain: every radio gets knocked or dropped, over and over. Will it work when you pick it up? Is the battery tough enough?
Using the same test set-up the U.S. military does for its equipment (MIL810F Method 516.5), each battery was attached to a Motorola radio and dropped four feet onto concrete. Each surface of the battery went through seven cycles of being dropped once on all six sides – for a total of 42 impacts.
PASS /FAIL CRITERIA
Each battery was inspected and failed if they experienced the following problems: cracking or
splitting open, damage to the radio connection or an inability to charge.
95% of Motorola batteries passed the test.
