You’ve purchased new two-way radios to help your crew communicate more effectively—what now? Choosing the right accessories will help you get the most out of your investment, so it’s always a good idea to consider your needs and explore the options available.
Buying chargers separately provides more flexibility than using those that come standard with your radio. Look for a universal charger with an interchangeable cup system for the most versatility, allowing you to charge up to 6 different radios at a time. Other charger features include AC and DC charging abilities all in one so you can charge your batteries inside or in a vehicle, as well as metal-cased chargers for superior durability.
If your staff need to keep their hands free for important tasks, consider fitting them with earpieces. Different ear buds and ear inserts are available to ensure users stay comfortable throughout the day. Surveillance kits are another option if you want to keep your equipment hidden—perfect for plainclothes security or police.
Headsets come in a variety of styles to suit your needs, such as over the head, behind the head, and dual and single speaker options. There are even noise-cancelling options available, which are ideal for use in noisy environments such as industrial sites.
Speaker microphones are one of the most common and widely-used audio accessories across various industries. Popular in the public safety sector, speaker mics allow police and security personnel to talk on the radio while leaving it strapped to their shoulder or hip. For added durability, look for equipment with features like Kevlar reinforced coil cables and an IP rating, which offers protection against dust, debris, and moisture.
You don’t have to buy your accessories from the radio manufacturer to enjoy great quality. Look for a supplier that offers a hassle-free warranty and OEM-quality products that are built to last, and ensure your accessories are compatible with your radio before you buy. Investing in the right accessories will allow you and your team to get the most out of your two-way radios, and can even save you money in the long run.
