Uniden has up­dated its flag­ship UH850S-DLX Ti­ta­nium 2-way ra­dio, ex­tend­ing its bat­tery life to 39 hours op­er­at­ing time (2850mAH) and giv­ing it a range of 17km and 5 watts of power, which it says is the max­i­mum power avail­able for any hand­held ra­dios.

The com­pany has also in­tro­duced ad­di­tional car ac­ces­sories for the hand­held UHF ra­dio in the form of a new car kit deluxe pack.

Users can switch be­tween por­ta­ble and in-car use by at­tach­ing the por­ta­ble mag­netic an­tenna to the out­side of a ve­hi­cle, then clip­ping the hand­held ra­dio into the cra­dle that charges through the cig­a­rette port, en­abling the hand­held ra­dio to be used as a CB mo­bile ra­dio.

The hand­held ra­dio can eas­ily be re­moved from the cra­dle and used out­side the ve­hi­cle with­out the need to swap to a dif­fer­ent ra­dio.

“The por­ta­ble an­tenna and cra­dle charger also al­low busi­nesses to have the CB mo­bile ra­dio so­lu­tion on their fleet of ve­hi­cles with­out hav­ing to ar­range for in­stal­la­tion or re­moval each time a ve­hi­cle is re­newed,” Uniden says. “Hav­ing the abil­ity to quickly move the de­vice into an­other ve­hi­cle will save busi­nesses’ ve­hi­cle down-time, re­sult­ing in an over­all cost sav­ing.”

The Uniden ra­dio fea­tures a built-in voice en­hancer with four au­dio set­tings – nor­mal, bass, midrange and high.

The UH850S-DLX is made of a ‘Built Rugged’ metal al­loy with a fully sub­mersible wa­ter­proof body based on IPX7 wa­ter­proof stan­dards. This means the ra­dio can be sub­merged in 1m of wa­ter for 30 min­utes with­out dam­age.

The Uniden UH850S-DLX 5-watt deluxe pack has a rec­om­mended re­tail price of $329.95
