    The  Motorola MOTOTRBO R2 two way radio is the newest and best communication solution for the toughest of environments. With 4-5 watts of power and a battery life of up to 26.5 digital hours, this handheld will absolutely allow your communications to last. Also, an IP55 rating ensures that the R2 can withstand dust particles as well as low-pressure jets from any direction. While this radio is extremely durable, it is also designed with a slim, ergonomic body for easier handling. Users within industries such as Security, Concert Venues and Events, Construction and more can take advantage of noise cancellation features including automatic feedback suppression, SINC and noise cancellation paired with the emergency capabilities such as Lone Worker and Emergency Alert.

    The MOTOTRBO R2 was designed to create a safer and more collaborative work environment for teams. With this handheld, however, it is important to create a hands-free environment in order to allow for hands-on tasks to be accomplished. This is why users typically purchase compatible accessories with their radios.

Some of these accessories include:

2-Wire Surveillance Kit Earpiece

    This 2-Wire earpiece is a more discrete accessory, which is popular for Security, when communications may want to appear less visible. Simply connect the accessory to your radio, which is connected to your hip via belt clip. Then, lace the wire through your shirt and clip it to your collar. Wrap the clear coil around your ear and insert the memory foam ear tip into the ear canal. These 2-wire earpieces are not only easy to clean, but the memory foam ear tips are also interchangeable, which allows the 2-wires to be shared among a team while still remaining sanitary.

D-Shell Earpiece

    The D-Shell earpiece is a great option for those working in construction or more rugged environments. This durable option wraps around the ear to secure for more movement and shifting.

Remote Speaker Microphones

    Remote speaker mics allow for quick, clear communication without the need for an earpiece. Warehouses often utilize these as it provides a means for quick relay of messages among the team. With simply the click of a button, one can transmit their audio and move on with their tasks.

Radio Chargers

Single-Unit Charger

    Single unit chargers are a must for those possessing a two way radio. This is how your handheld is able to charge and get ready for the day of work ahead. These single-unit chargers are great for individual use, however, if you are working with a team of two way radio users, a multi-unit charger will probably be a better option.

Benefits of Multi-Unit Chargers:

6-Shot Slim Charger

    The 6-shot slim is a great option for those with teams of up to 6 people. This multi-unit charger ensures that all radios can be charged at once and accounted for.

12-Bank Charger

    When working with larger fleets of handhelds, the 12-bank charger is going to be your best option. Multiple single-unit chargers take up multiple outlet spaces, while the 6-shot slim and 12-bank require only one outlet to charge many radios at once. This is the most effective charging option for teams of two way radios.
