Need A New Radio?

If it’s a new radio you need then the logical replacement is the Motorola VX-261. It’s practically the same radio with the same accessory connector, but the batteries and charger are different so you won’t be able to share your batteries.

Need A New Battery?

All of the batteries that were originally available with your radios have now also been cancelled; as have the original chargers.

Motorola has released a new charging system consisting of a single charger, a 6-position multi-charger, and a selection of batteries. This system is actually designed for the new series radios. But Motorola has also released some batteries for their historic range of radios, including the radio you have.

Therefore, you can still buy a new battery for the radio you have, but you will also need to buy a new charger. This new charger will charge the new batteries, but not the old battery.

Need A New Charger?

As explained above, all of the batteries and chargers that were originally available with your radios have been cancelled. If you need a new charger, you will also have to buy new batteries.
