MOTOTRBO™ SL1600 Ultra-slim Two-way Radio

MOTOTRBO™ SL1600 provides reliable push-to-talk communication for the mobile, everyday user in an ultra-slim and rugged profile. Measuring only 22mm thick, the SL1600 is ultra-portable.

Designed for easy and intuitive use, the SL1600 has a side volume control, dedicated power button, prominent push-to-talk button, and top toggle channel switch to enable quick one-hand access.

Its shatterproof Active View display communicates radio information and shuts off when not in use to conserve battery life, and the Range Max technology delivers enhanced range while maintaining a slim profile and long battery life.

This radio can survive many drops and tumbles. It has also been proven tough in Motorola’s grueling Accelerated Life Test, where the radio is tested against a simulated 5 years of hard service before it is accepted.
