IMPRES Batteries

IMPRES batteries, when used with an IMPRES charger, provide automatic, adaptive reconditioning, end-of-life display and other advanced features. Data is stored in the battery and communicated to the charger via a unique IMPRES communication protocol which is designed to maximise talk-time, automate battery maintenance and optimise battery cycle life. Batteries can be charged and reconditioned without being removed from the radio.

PMNN4077 IMPRES Battery

PMNN4077 IMPRES Li-ion 2200 mAh, 7.2V Submersible Battery– IP57 Rating.

PMNN4066 IMPRES Submersible Battery
PMNN4066 IMPRES Li-ion 1500 mAh, 7.2V Submersible Battery– IP57 Rating.

PMNN4069 IMPRES FM Submersible Batter
PMNN4069 IMPRES Li-ion 1400 mAh, 7.2V Submersible Battery– IP57 Rating. Intrinsically Safe (FM)


IMPRES Chargers

Through the use of advanced charging algorithms and automatic reconditioning features, the IMPRES™ Smart Energy System ensures maximum talk-time and optimised battery cycle life. This smart energy system automatically reconditions IMPRES batteries based on actual usage, keeping them in peak condition. Talk-time and cycle life are optimised and the need for manual maintenance programs is eliminated. Its advanced conditioning features allow batteries to be safely left on the charger for extended periods of time without incurring damaging heat build-up which can decrease battery cycle life. In addition, batteries left in the charger are kept fully charged so they are always ready when
needed. This rapid-rate, tri-chemistry charging system will also charge compatible non-IMPRES batteries.

Remote Speaker Microphones

Windporting Remote Speaker Microphones:
These remote speaker microphones boast a revolutionary windporting feature that helps lessen
background noise from high winds and other severe weather conditions. Audio can pass through the speaker grill even when the microphone port is blocked by water. Now radio users can be more confident than ever of clear, understandable communication when Mother Nature is uncooperative.
Coiled cord with new audio accessory connector allows talking and listening without removal from belt
or case. Includes Push-to-Talk switch, swivel clip and quick disconnect latch.
