How do they work?

When a Kenwood Two Way Radio is purchased, it typically is supplied with a single charger. With our rack chargers, you simply screw 6 charger pods down to the unit and plug the power lead into the back of the charging pod.

This means you can easily and conveniently create yourself a 6-way charger for your Kenwood two-way radio by simply attaching your existing charger pods.

We have stocked rack chargers for some time. The Motorola rack charger for Core (Round) Motorola charger pods has been one of our best-selling products.

Kenwood TK-D240 & TK-D340 Series Released

Kenwood TK-D340 VHF & Kenwood TK-D240 VHFWe are pleased to announce the fantastic new entry-tier digital DMR radios from Kenwood are in stock now.

The new radios are Kenwood TK-D340 (UHF) and Kenwood TK-D240 (VHF) which feature true mixed mode – they can operate in either DMR digital or analogue on the same channel by automatically detecting the incoming signal. This feature alone makes the Kenwood TK-Dx40 series the ideal migration companion.

DMR is a relatively new path for Kenwood as the company has previously concentrated on dPMR as well as their own proprietary NEXEDGE platform. Presumably realising that to compete in a competitive marketplace, Kenwood needed a DMR lineup. The Kenwood TK-Dx40 series is Kenwood’s entry-tier contribution to the DMR market with a middle-to-high tier product range being announced in the coming weeks.

The Kenwood TK-D340 (UHF) and Kenwood TK-D240 (VHF) DMR radios have an exhaustive feature-set for an entry-tier product. They’re also priced under £200, at £171+VAT list price which includes a lithium battery and a single charger.

As always, Kenwood has released two models which are TK-D340 which is UHF (~440-470MHz) and TK-D240 which is VHF (~136-175MHz). Other than that the  TK-D340 & TK-D240 are identical.

Kenwood KSC-43 TK-3201 TK-3301 & TK-3401D & TK-3501 Charger

Kenwood KSC-43Kenwood have released a new charger that is compatible with all of the TK-3201 TK-3301 & TK-3401D & TK-3501 radios, and as a potential replacement for either the KSC-31 or KSC-35/S chargers.

Kenwood seems to appreciate the confusion they caused by changing the battery and charge profile half way through the life of the TK-2202, TK3202 and TK-3201 series radios.

And in light of this they’ve released the KSC-43 which has a small adapter that can change the location of the charging pins. You simply put it one way to charge an old generation battery (KNB-30A, KNB-29N or KNB-53N) battery; and place the adapter the opposite way to charge a new generation (KNB-45L, KNB-63L or KNB-63L) battery.

You can purchase the KSC-43 charger by contacting us.
