Battery Care
& Tips
Radio Products and Services Division
These battery tips will help you obtain optimized performance
and a longer life cycle from your Motorola rechargeable battery.

1. Charge your new battery overnight before using it. This is referred to
as INITIALIZING and will enable you to obtain maximum battery capacity.
a. Nickel Cadmium or Nickel Metal Hydride: 14-16 hours.
b. Lithium Ion/Polymer: 1 to 2 additional hours after the charger 2. New Motorola impres batteries, when inserted into a Motorola impres
charger, will indicate a calibration cycle by displaying a steady Yellow
indication on the charge status indicator. Allow this calibration process
to complete
by not removing the battery from the charger until it has
completely charged and displays a steady green indication.
3. In order to minimize capacity loss and cycle life reduction, new,
NON INITIALIZED batteries must be stored in well ventilated, cool
and dry locations.
Batteries stored in these conditions may be stored:
up to 2 years.
up to 18 months.
up to 18 months.
4. If used batteries are to be removed from service for extended periods
(greater than 30 days) they should be discharged to about 50% of their
capacity before storage
in a cool, dry location.
5. Batteries which have been in storage for more than two months should
be fully discharged and recharged.
a. Nickel Cadmium or Nickel Metal Hydride: 14-16 hours.
b. Lithium Ion/Polymer: 1 to 2 additional hours after the charger 6. When using a Motorola rapid charger, leave the battery in the charger
for an additional 1 to 2 hours after the steady green light appears.
(Applies to non-impres batteries only.)
7. Do not leave your radio and fully-charged battery in the charger when
not charging. Continuous charging will shorten battery life. (Do not usecharger as a radio stand.) 8. Only charge a battery when it needs it. If it is not fully discharged, do
not recharge it. We suggest that you carry a spare. This is the most costeffective solution for users requiring longer operating time.
9. Do not return fully charged non-impres batteries to the charger for
an "extra boost." This action will significantly reduce cycle life. Repeated
short cycle charging of non-impres batteries will shorten battery life. (Do not
use charger as a radio stand for non-impres batteries.)
10. Stabilize batteries to room temperature (72ºF) before charging.
Charging below 40ºF and above 104ºF will decrease cycle life.
These simple care instructions help protect your rechargeable batteries fromextreme charging temperatures and enhance their performance and useful life.
Specify Motorola brand rechargeable batteries. They are designed and
precisely manufactured by Motorola engineers to ensure optimum portable
radio performance. It just makes good sense.
