3. Motorola APX Two Way Radio Charger

Don't just charge one, charge six at a time (and with or without the radio). This APX Charger by Waveband charges any Motorola APX series two-way radio. More models for different radios can be found in our Charger Compatibility Guide.

The charger comes with interchangeable cups to change out for different radio models in the future. This charger will charge your two-way radio battery in 3 to 4 hours limiting downtime.

The charger is equipped with LED lights while charging to let you know when charging is in progress, at 80%, and when fully charged.


4. Harris XL-200 Battery

Start off the 2024 year with a new battery for your Harris XL-200 two-way radio. This battery is IP67 rated for protection against water and dust. You can expect around a full day of battery life  and 50% greater runtime than your standard Harris battery. This means your radio will be powered when you need it most, without worry.


5. Bluetooth Speaker Microphone

Bluetooth is becoming almost standard on newer radio models because of their popularity and their connection to other devices. Waveband has received a lot of questions throughout the year about Bluetooth speaker microphones.
The Bluetooth speaker microphone is everything a normal speaker mic has except for the wires getting in your way. The run time is about 40 hour talk times with 30 days of standby time so you can spend less time worry about charged devices.
The Waveband Bluetooth speaker microphone is compatible with Motorola TRBO and APX series two-way radios with Bluetooth connectivity and includes the adapter.
